  1. I wish you all the best mate. Must be even more stressful letting the prick have another go. Good luck
  2. I just ordered a pair of mirrors from Ebay. Should be here in about a month. Love this mod. Listed on Ebay as items 142209712970 & 122267115919 if anyone else is looking. And they do international shipping. Just need to get a switch.
  3. I'm not sure where I would locate this switch as my car is converted to right hand drive and the remote mirror is still on the left. May have to cut a hole.
  4. Thanks for posting this. I was originally looking at fitting mid 80's RX7 mirrors but this is way better. I just need to source the parts. That will be a challenge in Australia as we don't have access to the parts you guys do.
  5. I would think that a generic spring would do the trick. Something from an assorted spring kit. It's not too high tech. You may have to experiment and cut one down to suit.
  6. Sounds like that's the problem. Shouldn't be too hard to fit a spring.
  7. The spring is visible at the bottom. My brake has been modified in the picture as part of my right hand drive conversion so some things may look a little odd.
  8. Have a look at the return spring on the handle and see if it is collapsed or broken. Otherwise as Mike said, lube.
  9. Love this mod. I will be keenly following the list of parts requested above.
  10. My 69 had a 351C with 4V dot heads (open chamber) when I got it. Has a mild cam, 600 Holley and stock manifolds. 3.25 diff and FMX. I was never impressed with the power off the mark and it had no chance of lighting up the tires with the traction lock. I recently rebuild the engine and changed to 2V closed chamber heads and a compression ratio of 10:1. A big difference off the mark and will now light up the tires. mission accomplished. I have heard mixed views on 2V vs 4V but from my experience the 2V gave a lot more torque which may also be the increased compression ratio.
  11. Seems to have dropped off the face of the planet. I've been asking around and no luck.
  12. Nice work on the engine but the engine bay looks a little half arse. Sanded and pressure pack. I don't hold much hope for the rest of the restoration.
