Re: Black '68


Carless atm; so doing bits and bobs that I can while it's on holiday

Have any of you folks done a quartz conversion? - I've just about finished one... the clock is working, but the 'seconds hand' doesnt seem to be long enough to reach the pin that it needs to sit on?? any suggestions would be most appreciated!

(the seconds hand did come loose in the box with some other bits as the original clock core was an ebay special that had clearly been apart before - so i'm not convinced the seconds hand actually belongs to the clock - that said, it does fit on the mechanism when the hour and minute cogs are not on it...)

My 6 year old daughter calls it 'the super hero car' and doesn't want me to get it painted! 😀

No longer 'Black '68' - Back from beauty therapy... now starting to resemble a car..

Weather was foul yesterday, so the car is wet and grubby already! Banghead

Re: Black '68


somehow... another 3 weeks has passed and I am still miles away from having it back together!!

(not helped by another 'new' part failure.... either the reman wiper motor is kaput or the willcox test guidance is wrong... given that my wipers won't stop, i'm guessing the former!)
