    It's amazing what you can clean with the right techniques.

    My box was dismantled and vapour blasted

    I like Frederic’s authentic look! Especially if the gearbox was good. No point in my book stripping a box just to clean the outside.

    That’s a great job our gearbox looks superb like new! Well done Leigh!

    Agreed with you Tim, I dismantled the unit for refurbishing and replacing new parts like the Quaife!

    Box was fine I think but was high miles so decided to pull it apart to check eveything, replace the breaing and fit the quiafe. I then went a step futher and had the casing powder coated to keep it looking nice!




    Apologies for hijacking your thread.

    Are there any Lister Bell replicas in the USA.
    I know there is a white one in Michigan - it was in the SEC calendar 3 or 4 years ago

    Re: Another Stratos project

    Chaps, just a gentle reminder - this is Frederic's build thread so going off at a tangent and asking about available cars is a bit rude. If you want to discuss LBs in the US, you can create a new thread somewhere, although you might be limited in which genres you can post if you're not a paid-up member.
    Talking about mucky gearboxes is, in this instance, fine, as Frederic did post pics of his not-so-oily bits and that generated a slight side-topic. Leigh, I can imagine you shuddering and having to have a lie-down at the mere thought of that box going into your car in such a state

    Just to avoid any doubt, I'm not looking to slap any wrists or get heavy - it is, as I said, just a gentle reminder. It's easy to get diverted (I know, I've done it...) but whatever you post should have some sort of relevance to the thread.

    OK, headmaster mode off - back to the action

    Pete, it's OK, you were just being helpful.

    Anyway, I hope you weren't implying I'm a slapper...
