Following on from my thread on boot corner rust I am moving on to various other bits and pieces. Seat belts are on order to replace the jammed ones in the front and as I am in painting mode some of the other rough bits will get attention.


One persistent problem I have found with Y10s is breaking the lugs off the little round covers that hide the boot hinge bolts. I now count these covers as a "grab one whenever you can" item. To help preserve them I remove them from behing with a screw driver, as shown below, rather than trying to dig them out from the front.

I am still waiting for replacement seatbelts to arrive. My first order resulted not in a pair of retractable 3 point seatbelts but a single child seat harness! Following a refund I have ordered some from elsewhere. Meanwhile as the car is in pieces I am doing other jobs. A long term problem has been that somewhere back in the mists of time the car has had a dent on the join between the driver's door and front wing such that the two panels scrape over each other when the door is opened. Multiple attempts over the years to massage them back into shape have failed through inaccessibility and the tight curvature of the panels. As I am painting the rear corners I decided it was time to get out a spare front wing, paint it up and fit it. The first job is to paint over the edges from the back to ensure complete coverage of the edges when I paint the outer surface. I have also been cleaning out the front inside of the rear arches ready for treatment with black waxoyle. This is an area which is worth revisiting every few years because of the rust traps. A particularly awkward bit is behind the fuel filler where various pipes trap mud in tight corners.

Does anyone have a recipe for stopping a bit of a tidy up turning into a major project?

Oh well. I'd better crack on then. Whilst we still have some reasonably warm and dry weather I must try to get some paint on. Today the rear quarter panels got masked and painted together with the replacement OSF wing.

Sounds as tho you need one of my "that will do for now" pills.
I think I may be addicted to them!!

I always fancied making a little pick up truck from a Y10 😂

I looked at those clips again and wondered if it it could be 3D printed.

David, I think they would be perfect for 3D printing we just need a cheap 3D printer in the club.

From another thread, where they were too expensive, https://www.shapeways.com

Do we have anyone who's able to 3D model in their sleep?
