Re: AK47 “Silver Arrow”

I found a small water ingress at O/S of rear window. After cleaning out the area with a solution of Milton and letting it all dry, I used the Tiger Seal from the outside and used various “bits” to keep it all secure whilst padding out from inside also (should have taken a photo). After overnight set...

Re: AK47 “Silver Arrow”

ED3AD94D-DFFB-49E9-86FE-93856E44A77B.jpeg This is product used to attach spoiler to boot lid, all 4 bolts secured up nicely too. Small excess easily wiped off. Left overnight and next day all was looking and feeling good. Last night there had been some rain, feeling confident I checked number plate...

Re: AK47 “Silver Arrow”

After looking at top of boot lid and underneath of spoiler, my thoughts are thus: no sealing compound used round middle two securing bolts and both plastic locating plugs, fibrous “sealing foam” used along top and bottom edges of spoiler. Also, both middle securing bolts were insecure, circlip on on...

Re: AK47 “Silver Arrow”

What’s been going on? MOT test needed F/N/S lower wishbone replacement, rear bush had collapsed! Had my friendly local garage do it, while we were off to celebrate 25 years married, just before “lockdown”. I’d had a large stone hit the screen, big chip left of centre, MOT advisory. Front discs, advi...

Re: AK47 “Silver Arrow”

Follow on from pre MOT, as presented all good! After replacing Aliens, last Friday, 20 December actually got water on headlights. Suspect it was a case of getting the pipe work primed, but now all working. Pre MOT said, due to age of car, Aliens operation not a testable item! Still enjoying driving ...

Re: AK47 “Silver Arrow”

Not a lot been happening, other than using the Silver Arrow and enjoying it, still able to have the top down, need to wear a scarf and hat now. Heated seats and heating system are both proving worthwhile. Having found out that there are headlight washers fitted, how do they work - read manual and fi...
