    New Project begins, 1974 P6 3500 V8

    More updates from the covid-19 resto rover work! Some shots of my garage work space and general dumping area of the interior. I will eventually make more space down the driver's side of the car by moving the garage panel back about 2ft..ish to the edge of the concrete base/driveway, build...

    New Project begins, 1974 P6 3500 V8

    So all old underseal removed and have now started on the inner rear wing metal repairs, the car had never been welded until I started the front inner wings, nice to see the original panels before the rust set in! So as per the pics I've started on the rear O/S inner wing, cutting...

    Engine removal without removing auto box

    Hi Steve, done it many a times, engine out and back in without removing the gearbox, I didn't need to remove the starter motor as cant see how that gains access to the four bolts holding the torque converter to the auto flywheel. You access them by removing the half moon shaped dust cover plate...

    Cleaning inside of P6 V8 petrol tank (1974 model)

    That's a cracking story! Its one big petrol head family, the atmosphere is second to none at the pod, the same at Shakespeare race way before it was sadly closed. Your boy must have been absolutely thrilled to watch the racing from there, especially the top fuellers doing there burnouts and...

    Cleaning inside of P6 V8 petrol tank (1974 model)

    Minilite options?

    Going through various topics (Board while working from home) and saw this! it was my car back in 2007, was my 2nd P6, eBay purchase, overall a lovely car but ended up replacing complete o/s inner/outer sills. The wheels were lovely being 15" minilites & really suited it! Sold it for less than I...

    Cleaning inside of P6 V8 petrol tank (1974 model)

    Thanks for the tips guys, on closer inspection it doesnt look as rusty as I first assumed, more like 'rust colour' dirt so yes I'll try to get hold of some sort of cleaner, if no joy I do have some paraffin to slosh around. Thanks for the explanation on the reserve system too Cobraboy (sorry I...

    Cleaning inside of P6 V8 petrol tank (1974 model)

    Any good tips on cleaning the inside of the tank, the sender was rusted and seized so the its not too pretty on the inside, more surface rust and bits, do these tank sealers work well, especially with the reserve sections on these V8 tanks? Thanks & regards Damian

    Brush on metal primer

    Any tips on a good brush on metal primer (mail order poss ) as I used Screwfix red Oxide on the front end but it reacted in places with the UPOL gravitex so wont use again, I can't think what I used when I did the red P6 several year ago... Thanks Damian.

    Well I've have been busy since lock down, fortunate to be working from home 9am-5pm but as now the wife & I have almost exceeded the garden stuff I've now been in the garage! (before she finds DIY projects) So got the front put back together, made new wiring for the reversing lights, got it...
