Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

Hi Guys
Got a little problem
Went to open my drivers door today, and the door handle came off in my hand. Nothing is broken, it just came unstuck ( it is the teardrop piece, not the hinged part )
What do you suggest to stick it back
Do I grind out the back and pack it with Upol or Sikaflex
I used Upol in the first place, so edging towards Sikaflex
Thanks
Mick

Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

Hi mickey , I would defo use fibreglass paste just make sure you grind  some deep groves in the back of the handle and on the metal piece  it should not ever come off ,jd

Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

A little update, especially for Brillo
Made my rear calipers a more permanent fit, as I had just welded a little bracket to the disc rear cover. This was just a temporary fix until I had time to make a couple of sturdy brackets

In picture 1 you will see that I welded the bracket to the rear wishbone
In picture 2 you can see that I bonded a 2 lengths of about 8.5" 10mm studding to the back of the calipers
I then bolted this to the bracket, picture 3
And in picture 4, with the wheels on and back on the ground

Now the thing to note is that the wheel pivots on the wishbone, when cornering and/or over uneven ground, so when the wheel is back on the ground, you need to have a gap of about 10mm between the fake disc and the closest part of the caliper
I have this amount of gap and have been driving over all types of uneven roads and at no point are they making contact
Hope this is of help
Mick

To be continued..........

Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

Hey Mick thanks for the photos of the callipers.
That is one sturdy set up you have there, that's not going to come off in a hurry.
What will happen at your next mot. Will you leave this set up in place and if you do dismantle it, isn't the examiner not going to wonder what the strange new welded brackets are for
Just wondering.
Cheers.

Re: Mickey_London's Build Diary

If the bracket isn't hanging down lower than the rest of the underneath, and not causing any rubbing issues with other parts then I wouldn't of thought the MOT examiner would worry about it.
Can't see any safety issues to worry about Matey
