The Series II individual motors?

Always feels like a major step forward when it's a rolling chassis.

What was the heated glass element you used? Was it just a pre-gridded pane or something you put on it?

Just got a huge order from Craddock's. Got my giant steering rods. Next time i will be doing a lot of assembly. Gonna put the engine in, steering gear, and drive shafts. Shocks, calipers. Maybe the Goodridge brake lines. Mount the Kevlars on the wheels.
Gotta call the paint place and see what their timing is.

Found a crack in one of my heated windows. Can't imagine how it happened as all I did was set them in the mastic and walk away. Wrote to Ricky Evans and hope they will do something for me.

Thanks. I'm at one of those points where lots of little stuff is getting attention, and the chassis sorta sits. Next time I go over there I hope to be picking up body tins.

More Britpart fun...
The reconditioned door latches I bought are OK except for the Driver's door with the built in lock. Ignoring the fact that this one won't fit the door, the lock is set up so that when you turn the key to the "locked" position, you cannot remove the key from the lock cylinder. With the lock unlocked the key goes in and out smoothly.

Bill - I have a LHD lock set with a key...works fine.

Also a spare lock for any side.

You could probably take it to a locksmith....

it might be worth taking that glass to one of the glass repair places to see if they can stop it running. that might be more economical than shipping another piece over.

as for the door locks, it depends which type you have as there are several. Some of them you turn the key to lock, then turn it back to remove the key but it stays locked until you turn it again.

Rick Evans seems willing to send me a new glass. I did put some water thin epoxy in the crack which did get in there to stop the crack getting worse but it's a goner in any event.

I think I still have the old latches, which I need to pilfer for the push and turn locks. As for the BritPart one, it is pretty stupid. Key turns barrel, which rotates foot shaped thing into place, wedging handle (locked). Key stuck. Turn key to unlocked, key comes out. That's it, doesn't do any other way.
Craig kindly offered me one, which is fine, and I'll use it if worst comes to worst. Thing is, I want to keep the 2A one that doesn't require cutting the door frame. If I had planned this better I would have done that before getting them dipped.

The OE one has a little thing that catches a pin.

With the Bilsteins, it seems that the shocks are just about at the limit of travel. Granted there's no body on the chassis at the moment, but even with it on I can't see much more than another maybe 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection. What's the next step up in length if these don't work out?
