    Re: clamshell catches

    Yeah, I used a 1/8 punch, the swage/flare just folded up and the pin fell out. I used a tapered centre punch to re-flare it when I put it back in. Still ok a few years later.

    Re: New Stratos Manufacturer in USA..

    Re: Jay Leno's Garage

    Me too, made me cringe. I lost count of how many times I glued my Beta glove box catch back together after people didn’t listen.

    Re: Thread re Stratos For Sale on Pistonheads

    That’s the car I saw here when my kit was on the water back in 2013. It had 4500km on it. It’s well travelled, it was in the States for a while.

    Re: Fasteners for thin (ish) GRP panels

    I haven't seen those, most of the anchor nuts I've seen on the Boeing and Airbus aircraft I've worked are quite narrow and use ms20426 3/32 AD 100 degree rivets or EC2216 adhesive to bond them on,...

    I did my own, it was actually pretty easy. I put it in position, and made some small alloy packers in a couple of spots along the bottom to get it in the correct spot. Pulled it out, painted on the...

    Re: Mud flaps

    I used some nice shiney black 4mm stuff from Demon Tweeks, it's kept its shine for over two years of driving so I'm happy with it.
