The Lounge / Unfolding a build sheet.
« on: March 13, 2018, 02:55:24 PM »
Hey Folks,  Got a 68 fastback in and stripped out the interior and sent the car for paint, weeks later it came back today and I thought...would be nice to find the build sheet. Looked down and sitting in the detritus found under most fifty year old carpets was the build sheet all tightly folded and curled uo

Can anyone give me some pointers on the best way to unfurl and open with the best possibility of wow damage?  I assume steam plays a part.  was thinking a strainer over a pot of boiling water

It's in quite good shape and not a crumbling mess like most.

I had my 66 Tach looked at for an operational fault and I didn't have a thing done to the patina, my car has a tired paint job to match :-)

Thought some of you may like to see these

Shop is called GT101 in Colchester Essex

Gulf livery car has 15 miles and is 395k

Two Tachs actually

Before the site went down I had posted I was having issues with a Tach dash where the Tach was pegged as soon as the key was turned

I finally got my hands on another Tach and upon trying that I found the Tach worked fine so the wiring was not at fault. That being said this second Tach didn't return easily to zero

I was shortly heading to the USA so brought both tachs and mailed to Phil Severance who has done some challenger gauges for me and also some previous Tach work

For those with an interest his repairs were as follows:
"The tachometer, that pegged, had an internal short that didn't show up until the tach was installed and grounded. I replaced the whole board and will sort the old board when I have more time. The tachometer that didn't zero had a lot of contamination in the meter. I replaced the board, balanced and calibrated the meter. Both should be good to go"
