  9. I know this won't be of interest to most people, but being a car forum I'm guessing there might be one or two of you who might appreciate this on-going restoration thread of an F40 LM I came across. The attention to detail is astounding and the workmanship is just spectacular. http://www.build-threads.com/build-threads...lm-restoration/ The resto is at a stage where the car is starting to come back together and the best part is that the owner intends to drive/track the car once it's done.
  10. Nobel prize winning author Ernest Hemingway's last car was a 1955 Chrysler New Yorker Convertible. Hemingway left the car on the island of Cuba before his suicide in 1961 and from then onwards, the vehicle has somehow disappeared from public view. Presumed to be lost, the car was found a couple of years back and now is the subject of an upcoming documentary about the car's history and ongoing restoration process. The New Yorker Convertible has been passed around between members of one family and there are plans to restore the car to its original condition. But, due to the United

  13. I went to a workshop to fix some stuff onto my car and found that the worker had left a deep scratch on the soft plastic of the gearbox cover. Complained and the workshop offered to fix it by doing a carbon fibre wrap. Went down to pick up yesterday and discovered that the carbon fibre wrap job was like a primary school art work, all the sides not even with plenty of bubbles, the corners like haphazardly pasted with pieces of carbon fibre sticker like paper mache. I have rejected the work and asked that he redo this, but is this common or is there a more reputable carbon fibre wrap place

  15. Hardly any other car model (or mini bus for this instance) has such a high cult status as the Volkswagen Bus. It has been around for over 60 years and the Type 2 model is still in production in Brazil. Volkswagen is dead serious on its heritage as they have appointed Franz-Josef Paefgen (in October last year), former chief executive of Audi, Bentley and Bugatti, to head their classics program. At Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, the Volkswagen Bus has its own department dedicated in preserving its heritage and it is known as the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Oldtimer. The department

His parents bought him this 1955 car as a present for his college graduation. Mr. Wellmer used it until its transmission gave way and he parked it in a garage, back in 1971. T
  17. A few years ago, Brooklyn artist Jonathan Brand sold a 1969 Ford Mustang that he rebuilt with his father to pay for an engagement ring. In his latest work, entitled "One Piece at a Time," he has reconstructed that Mustang, piece by piece, at 1:1 scale, using nothing but paper. Brand mentioned that the American automobile has played a large part in his personal life and his art. His grandfather worked as a millwright at a Detroit car assembly line. His uncles and cousins are mechanics. And he, together with his father, has restored 3 vintage cars. One of those cars, a 1969 Mustang, took

  25. For some unknown reason, an area of about 5cm(sq) of the paint appears tough after SRP, while the rest of the car is smooth. I suspect too much of the SRP removes it. Is there any way to restore it, so that I get the smooth feeling? Or do I have to go for a respray? What are the implications of leaving the area tough? Some other areas spotted appears a bit tough, but not that bad overall.
