2 Months on & no further forward - 01/12

December 3, 2006 – 12:20 pm
Ok. I've had me motor just over 2 months and pretty much done nothing!
Things haven't quite gone as smoothly as planned but I've managed to sell the bodged tub so that's a start and now I'm back to square one. So I'm back to the age old question ....... replace the panels, or replace the complete rear end! This is what I need to replace (or repair).


No. 44 - Inner Wing - x2. £146 each
No. 32 - Inner quarter panel - x2. £100 each (although may be able to use what I have)
No. 30 - Quarter panel - £62 each
No. 48 - Tonneau saddle - £250.00
No. 51 - Rear apron - £328.00
No. 53 - Spare wheel compartment - £214
No. 35 - Inner rear bottom panel - £23
No. 36 - Body to chassis bracket x2 - £11 each
No. 34 - Closing Panel - x2 - £19 each
No. 46 - Stiffener - x2 - £22 each
No. 45 - Lining panel - £36 each

Repair pieces are very hard to find and not normally available so it means making them up yourself. I've got a metal bender and still hunting for some rollers which until I have them makes it near impossible to make repair pieces from scratch as my hammer & dolly skills are not as good as they need

This is all I can think of for mixers/garnishments so far – please help me because I’m sure I’m missing some…
- Tonic
- Coke/Pepsi
- Mountain Dew
- Dr. Pepper
- Limes

In his first interview since the world financial crisis, Gao Xiqing, the man who oversees $200 billion of China’s $2 trillion in dollar holdings, explains why he’s betting against the dollar, praises American pragmatism, and wonders about enormous Wall Street paychecks. And he has a friendly piece of advice:
Americans know that China has financed much of their nation’s public and private debt. During the presidential campaign, Barack Obama and John McCain generally agreed on the peril of borrowing so heavily from this one foreign source. For instance, in their final debate, McCain warned about the “$10 trillion debt we’re giving to our kids, a half a trillion dollars we owe China,” and Obama said, “Nothing is more important than us no longer borrowing $700billion or more from...
