  1. For information 2.5mm flat head copper rivet
  2. Sorry to resurrect but did anyone get measurements for the stands?
  3. Sorry it was a throw away type of question, yes the holes are measurable will do my usually trick of getting drill bits to see, provisionally I think about 2.5mm to 3mm. The guide is a great help as well Thanks Richard
  4. Thanks, will have a look, the manufacturers label is covered in paint so not sure which size metric or imperial i need yet. The point you have made does bring another question to light at what point would the sizes be changed to metric?
  5. Got them off now, the rivits are made of copper
  6. Just been sent this FBHVC Press Release 02.09.2021 - Clarification on E10 fuel usage and labelling for historic vehicles.pdf
  7. Gordon Thanks heading out to sort it
  8. Thanks, just going to head out and get them off, then to sand blaster
  9. Totally agree, as I have said on the forum always learning
  10. The back of the rivet. Used a wire brush to try and show it a bit better
  11. Heading out to shed today will get picture of the rear
  12. Thanks, I have plenty of screwdrivers that might work and as always will go carefully. Thinking out loud as I do, Think will try and knock the back where no plate. Will then know size of rivet needed and after treatment how to secure them
  13. I was chatting to an engineer the other day and we were discussing the lock down, he had been speaking to a friend of his who was fed up of the lock down, the engineer asked him what he had learnt in the last 6 months, his friend said nothing. The engineer said he felt his friend had not thought properly. I said I had learnt to refurbish stoves, learnt to change the oil on a land rover and soldering, yes simple things so thought it might be a good topic to start.
  14. Gordon Many thanks, was thinking of the usual a drill but will try your suggestion when I can find a blunt chisel, have a fabricators not far from work they may have one. Will do some research on push rivit's, every day a school day and I do like this form of learning
  15. Just added another stove and decided to strip it down and get it sand blasted, I am going to remove the instruction labels which appear to be a cold rivet. Can some one advise if this assumption is correct and if so any source I think they are about 2 maybe 3 mm diameter. If not may use a pot rivet instead. Thanks in advance.
  16. Saw This and thought would post it for information Warning over potential car tax fines when driving in Europe this summer - how to avoid (msn.com)
  17. Just acquired another stove to restore and noticed blue paint under the green, any ideas please
  18. Paul Many thanks next on the list to do
  19. Many thanks i do like the cooking times
  20. Thanks, for this, i think my issue will be the wiring from the 4 pins to the connections especially as one is a thermostat, still thinking about how to do it
  21. Just found this old picture when my land Rover was delivered direct from Witham, red pintle. Just spotted that the 12v sign was not replaced after the crash, need to source one
  22. Many thanks, I couldn't see the holes in the picture above and at the moment to much paint on the actual part couldn't see the holes for the pliers, it does make sense to me now you have mentioned it, as always the big thing is learning.
  23. It looks like i am going to have to strip the thing down to free it, just trying to work out the best way to get the washers off holding the pins in. Plenty of layers of paint on it
  24. Just been emailed about the above item The Scottish Military Vehicle Group 2017 - Sales and Wants (scottishmvg.org)
