Ranger Re-Build-gctid5447

I was thinking of something a bit like this but it might look really nice if the colour was replaced by a carbon fibre weave effect wrap.

Ranger Re-Build-gctid5445

You could do both - spray the whole thing and then wrap some of the easier panels. A lot of the Ranger is pretty flat and would be easy to do but, as jeepything says, that makes some of the corners very sharp for stretching vinyl over. I parked next to a car in the B&Q car park on Friday that was de...

The Bristol Ranger-gctid5273

I took the Rickman up to Bolton yesterday to swap some Dutton parts, a windscreen and a hardtop. It was 370 miles in total, almost all on motorways. I drove there and back at 65mph and it was reasonably comfortable apart from my right foot getting tired from having to keep the gentle pressure on the...

Ranger Re-Build-gctid5403

I'm not sure that the Mk1 Escort had hazard flashers. I could not see them mentioned in my Haynes Manual whereas I could in the Mk2 manual. I do remember when they first became common and many people thought that they were a bit of a gimmick. Now we know that they are a God send as they allow you to...

That's good idea. I have some flash band left over from my garage roof and I couldn't bring myself to throw it away. Now my hoarding is vindicated!

The Bristol Ranger-gctid5261

As it happens, I had a replacement cam belt left over from a job on the Dutton (when I just couldn't be bothered to replace the belt after buying it). After that, things went relatively smoothly - the new pump was slightly different but I was able to fit it satisfactorily. Refitting was a bit easier...

The Bristol Ranger-gctid5257

Today I have been replacing the water pump on my Ranger. I noticed that it was leaking last weekend but couldn't face the job until today. I was fairly sure that I would have to remove the radiator in order to get at the bolts holding the fan and pulley onto the pump, once those are off then I would...

That's looking really good. It'll be a pity to get it all dirty with that Trialling hobby of yours.
