    Re: US Headlight Buckets

    Is that not a steering gearbox I see on the right side in your last photo?

    Mine is not euro but U.S. converted to led. The 'bucket' was not used until late in '58.

    Re: Replacing cracked plastic in tail lights

    Same process but be careful with the heat. I added too much too fast and came close to ruining the lens. Rather than epoxy, I used clear silicone dispensed in a fine bead with a hypodermic.

  16. Re: Removing paint on aluminium panels by sanding or with selected paint stripper

    Use a stripper whose main ingredient is methylene chloride. Best to use outside or with ample ventilation. Don’t use a stripper containing sodium hydroxide as it will react with aluminum.
