This month we stick our neck out and proclaim we’ve found the best TR5 restoration in the world. It’s packed with original details and parts thanks to its restorer/owner who was once an apprentice on the original TR5 production line. Don’t miss it. Talbot’s Sunbeam Ti is a rare sight nowadays which prompted its owner to restore it in just four weeks!
And for something unique we have the restoration of an Austin A60 ambulance. The winter months mean misty windscreens so a broken heated screen is all the more frustrating. We show you how to repair broken terminals and get yours working again. Spridget, A40 and other such BMC vehicles with their front coil springs set-up are DIY-friendly.
We have a safe, neat trick for swapping coil springs without a spring compressor. Small vans made off the back of their car variants used to be commonplace on every High Street – we have Vauxhall Viva HA, Morris Minor Van, Citroen 2CV A350 and Austin A35 versions to compare for two-seaters with a twist! Our Morris Minor Traveller prize car is now stripped of its engine, gearbox and wiring loom ready for the body repairs required. Product Test: Work lamps – halogen, LED and energy-saving versions. Which is the best turn on for you?
The latest Stag Rescue episode includes rebuilding the wonderful V8 engine with mods for reliability, and the body gets its first coats of primer putty. Plus, our highly entertaining 22-page staff diaries section; packed with hands-on advice featuring classics owned by the team. Topics include TR7 pop-up headlamps solved, spraying a car boot, floorpan repairs and much more. Cars include Lancia Stratos replica, Morris Minors, Peugeot 205, Austin A40, Davrian Mk8, Jaguar XJ6, RMB Gentry, MGB GT and Midget, Triumph TR6, TriumphSpitfire Mk3, Land Rover, Triumph TR7 Sprint, Peerless GT and more.
