BRITISH INVASION 2017 OFFICIAL THREAD...ARE YOU GOING? CHECK IN HERE!

There has been quite a bit of buzz about the 2017 British Invasion and one of the rumours going around is that this year will be the last invasion! We've been in touch with Mike Gaetano, who is very much a supporter of The Men in White and our Singer displays and this is his response: "...I sus...

Re: lockheed decal

Hey Mike,

Yes...this is the one I recommended and saw at Beaulieu on their stand. He had a few back then.

The vertical looks like the one that Trevor Cornelious used to sell. I have one, but it is basically a colour photocopy. This is more like the one shown in the '35 handbook.

Re: WANTED Singer Car Owners Information

Hey Conor, As Pre-War registrar of NASOC, I'd love ot get some more photos and data (chassis number, etc) for my records. Would you be interested in writing an article about the car for our club magazine? I am sure it would be of interest to our members. I also own the remains of a Bantam Tourer. Le...

Re: Under frame window seal

Hey John, Fred is correct. Bill had made the original style windscreen rubber and sold a lot of them. He also did a very nice proper enameled radiator badge. ASCO bought all of Bill's spare after he passed away, so I am sure Barry will steer you in the right direction. I believe the spares are now i...

Re: 1934 Windscreen Posts / staunchness

Hey Darcy,

The larger windshield post you have is for an early Roadster - R or A series up to 1949.

The 'eyelet' on the upper section is the giveaway...it's the pivot for the side screen.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
Phillip

Hey Fred,

Something slightly hilarious about the fact that Summit Racing sells tractor mufflers!

It is indeed the same beast!

Re: New Owner Here

Hey Scott, Here's a great photo from Fred Tag's 4AD restoration album. Looks like he may have used the muffler I mentioned...or something very similar: Fred Tag muffler.jpg This is a great view to show the location and set-up of the muffler assembly. Fred mounted the system differently to the origin...

Re: Bell Housing Strengthening Bracket

Another update on the bracket project... My bellhousing arrived back from the welder and some time was spent dressing the repairs. He said besides the arched crack right where the missing bracket should have been, there were a host of stress spider cracks around the casting which needed attention. W...

Re: New Owner Here

Hey Scott, My pleasure to assist and please feel free to ask questions. I have some Roadster spares left over so if you are looking for anything, please ask. I might post a lot of the stuff in the parts for sale once I get a chance. The following info may help in regards to mufflers: It's been a few...

Re: lockheed decal

Hey David, It isn't rocket science you're right, but takes research and time to get the design and materials correct. We sourced a supplier who could do the correct die-cut round edges and oil/brake fluid resistant inks, but that comes at a price! I've checked out the 'I say, ding dong' website and ...

Re: 1934 Singer on Prewar Car

Ironic that the seller's name should be 'Phillippe'... When I was actively looking for a 1.5, this car was extremely original (owned by Paul Barnes I think) and it was suggested by a number of SOC folk that this was the 'right' 1.5 for me. It was...but sadly now well out of financial reach! She's be...

Re: Transmission tunnel

Guys, I believe the moulds created by the late Roadster guru Bill Haverly are in the hands of ASCO in the UK. I think they may have made up a batch. These are fiberglass but look like the original at a distance. Might be worth checking with them via their club site: http://www.asco.org.uk/index.html...
