Thanks for the compliments guys, I appreciate it  Wink. When you can't get hold of certain parts you just have to make them, as you know well Kev! Yesterday some circlips I had ordered arrived through the post so I reassembled the tie rods & braking mechanism back on the cross member ready to be put back on the Delta.

You have every right to feel chuffed, Rob  Smiley
The new part looks the biz......when you're that good, why would you even consider the 3D printing quote of 1200!!!

Hi Rob, I have read all your posts with interest as I have recently taken on an '88 Turbo which a friend started many years ago and really needs finishing and putting back on the road. He has done all the bodywork restoration and painting so I will tidy up the underside and sort out some electrical faults. I was interested to read that you have replaced the brake calipers and balance valve and would be interested in knowing where you sourced them from?
Many thanks,
David.

Rob, question you may be able to answer as I see you've done it recently and I took mine off a year or two ago....the pillar trim that goes down the windscreen side to connect with the gutter trim, does it have a seal and if so what does it look like!
I've found the long gutter ones but can I heck find any for the windscreen pillar trims, assuming there was something behind the metal trim or the water will just run everywhere  Huh?

Joys of taking stuff apart about 3 years ago and not being organised enough back them to store stuff properly!
Saying that though I bet it wasn't that long ago I took them off....just the memory isn't what it was!

Hi David,
Sorry for the late reply I haven't checked in on the forum for a while. I sourced the front & rear brake calipers from Autodoc which is a german company. The fronts were fairly easy to acquire but the rears took a bit of patience & I had to wait until they had them in stock. Alternatively you can have the original brake calipers reconditioned by a company called Big Red (as long as you still have them!). Hope that's helpful but if you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask  Wink.
Cheers,
 Rob

Hi Kev,
Yes I know the seal you're talking about, it's similar to the one that goes between the roof gutter the aluminium trim although the design is slightly different. Keep looking for it as I'm sure it will turn up eventually. I've misplaced parts for months & thought I'd lost them then they turn up when I'm usually having a tidy up / sort out  Wink.
Cheers,
Rob

To know there is a seal is worth a lot Rob, I assumed there must be although I can't for the life of me find anything that looks likely.
I took the A pillar trims off at Jims' where I did the welding, so the seals must have come off there, so I will retrace my steps and look through everything that came off back then.

Appreciate the answer, and for letting me know it's similar to the roof gutter one helps

Had a good look in the shed tonight mate, no sign of them being in there.
Trouble is they could also be in the loft from when I left Jims' place and brought some bits home, in either of 2 workshops where the car now is, or in any of the many boxes containing parts  Huh?
Were they the same sort of stiff plastic like the long gutter trims or more rubbery? That little bit of info should help determine where they are not....  Roll Eyes

Sorry for hijacking your thread, hope you don't mind too much, just not a lot of people to ask!

I'll be up at the car tomorrow afternoon so I'll check this seal for fitment, has the right curvature.
The profile looks like it'd kind of work too...

Last hijack Rob...

Was all set to take the seal to the unit to try on the car when I got a call from Jim, where I'd done all the welding.
I'd asked him to check to see if there was anything left where I did the car, he'd already looked a couple of times but for whatever reason he had another look and found a trim piece that he said looked like it might do the job.
Picked it up from him and blow me, the exact copy of the one I'd found, apart from curving the other way! As it was found where I'd put the A post trims then it just had to be the right pair....which this afternoon I confirmed it was.
Happy days, these things turn up eventually as you say  Cool
