Singer Chamois coupe, Vickie

Post by super66 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:50 pm

I feel a bit guilty about not having a thread about my car, you have all seen the car at the last few national's but for some reason i never started a thread so here goes...

I bought the car in june 2009, just in time for the national. The car was originally owned by a lovely gent who worked for shell. taking car of the car and adding plenty of gadgets to the car.
this is how the car looked then...
Image
I just couldn't help myself so i fitted the monties and protech shocks and fitted my minilights which made it look more like this
Image
Image
The car at this point was being absolutly faultless, i loved it. at national 2009 i stayed down there visting family and also tying it in with the retro rides weekend which was nice, 900 miles, fault free! was very happy with that.
The car for a while then was left alone with me being at uni and not wanting to park it on the street.
So then i thought it would be time to play with the car as i felt i needed a change, so i started with swapping some of the interior, swapped the seats for some classic style buckets and a mess around with some switch's and gauges.
Then decided to buy a sport engine but had some problems with that once fitted so pulled it out and put the old engine back in. while i was doing this i messed with the wiring, which had seen better days! fitted new fuel line front to back as the existing one had a tiny hole in which was stinking the car out.
Image
Image
Image
I also decided to have my steering wheel retrimed in leather with red stitching to match the red pinstripe down the side
Image
I managed to get myself a modified sport exhaust manifold which i had a stainless back box made, at JP exhausts of Macclesfield, Brilliant guys, couldn't be more helpful and the quality is A*****
Image
Image
The bodywork of the car isn't looking too great at the moment but this is the next task, i've had my quote for the welding and a full respray so i am currently trying to save up to have that done, needs to be looking good as it is going to be taking chris (turbo chris) to his wedding in july!

I will also be having the interior retrimmed which i am hoping to have done by the company that rev racing works for which will be nice, but not giving anything away.

I'll leave you with my favourite picture of the car

Ahh yes well noticed Baz, i forgot about that i replaced the 5.5j wheels for some 6" with a chrome lip to match the back like this
Image
and last week i had these fitted to the back, the same style as before, just new as the others had laquer peel etc
Image

I'll get a picture of them on the car when i'm back next week

I love this car, particularly the stance of the rear wheels.

You mentioned before that you increased the ride height to get good clearance. Are you running regular Monte Carlos or lowered? What other steps did you need to get the 7" Superlites to work?

I am looking at same wheels. What offset did you specify for the new ones?

Keep up the good work, this is a great car.

I didn't realise there was so much love for my car, thanks guys!
The rear wheels are 13x7 with ET-7. The suspension set up is standard monte springs with spring boots top and bottom and lowered protech shocks. without the spring boots it was prob 10-15mm lower and just too much with the arch meaning that they rub.
I can't wait to get the car finished but like we all say, it's never finished!

I like the fog and reverse light on the back,(as well as the rest of the car!!) although it won't be original for mine - for that bit extra safety I'm thinking of doing something similar.

The rearsprings have rubber 'doughnuts' fitted at the top of the springs. If you fit them at the bottom as well you get a slight increase in height without changing the springs.

/\ WHS, still gives the stiffness of the monte but just raises the car very slightly, meaning i never have any issues with rubbing, hard cornering or bumps.

Off home this weekend so i can play around with the car, can finish off the rebuild of the alternator, is complete just need the pulley attaching and then fitting.
You can see the brushes here, new against old, think that's what you call worn!
Image
Also going to be fitting so seats into in on a temp basis as i have sold the buckets.
I'll give it a good clean and get some pictures of it sat on the new wheels.

Annoyingly, i've now had a problem with the alternator that i rebuilt, it is v hard to turn over, so something musty have slipped, so next time i'm back i'll take it off and have another look at it, i do have another that i will put on the car in the meanwhile.
Managed to fix the heater while i was back though. The past few weeks that i had been driving it, the heater hadn't been kicking out too much heat so i went to have a look at the heater control's above the tank to find a lot of water sat on top of the tank! it was a simple fix, a turn or 2 on a jubilee and done, a leak free water system and a hot heater :)
Afraid no pics of the wheel son it yet, was planning on taking them this weekend but due to rain i didn't!

Bearing wouldnt of failed that quick , so yes somethings adrift , IIRC the armature has spacers on one end ( possibly slip ring side ) if these are not there or fitted in the wrong place this will lock up the armature , its something simple i suspect , just make sure its not catching on the stator ( poleing ) as that can be serious ,

Ok, well the sourcing of body panels has now begun! The poor girl is in need of sills and arch's so may take a while to source and fund them all but i'll get there! I know malc has them in but afraid the student loan won't stretch as for all panels from malc, ( Sorry Malc :? )
Have managed to source a few engine parts for the 930 aswell which is nice. Need to decided if i'm going to swap the 930 over to an imp crank or not, if so i'll need to be sourcing a nice crank, and while i'm at it get it all balanced.

Well things are looking good at the moment!
I have some body panels sourced and will look good when fitted to the car, that respray is getting closer :)
Also this weekend picked up what i have been looking for! A weber and manifold!
Image
As you can see, i need the studs for the manifold, but it has been chemically cleaned which is nice. Next job is to also have the carb cleaned like that and give it a rebuild as not much history is known about it.
Also managed to grab myself a bargain rev counter aswell this eve that i will try and fit into the dash as it's only a small 52mm. don't really want to have it in a pod on top but we'll see! I'll post pics of that when arrived.

Noel,

I haven't fitted mirrors to my glassfibre front compartment cover but, if I did, I would want to spread the loads using nice large washers. Also, be careful not to overtighten the fastenings.

As it happens, I have some bullet mirrors to fit to my Chamois but I shall fit them to the doors.

If you`ve driven an Imp with bullet mirrors on the doors, and liked it, good on ya! If not, then they can be a bit of a hindrance. :)

Hmmm. Well I was going to try experimenting with their position to ensure that they were useful before drilling any bolt holes. If they are no good, I shan't fit door mirrors. :D I shall make do with the interior mirror that vibrates and gives a lovely, blurry view out of the rear hatch. :wink:

I like the door mirrors on a Caledonian. Made by a French manufacturer and I`ve never seen exactly the same ones on any other car. I`ve got about 3 of them to choose from that I`m thinking of using on my Sunbeam, but that`s waaaay in the future. :shock:

As a Caledonian and Stiletto owner latter with bonnet mounted Bullet mirrors I can offer the following. Bullet mirrors need convex glasses to give sufficient view and I struggled to find some, but eventually did.

Personally I love the Caledonian CPS [French made] door mirrors and I feel at ease when on any roads because I can clearly see what the modern car jockey is doing on both sides of me and mirrors are particularly good when joining dual carriageways and motorways. By time Caledonian was made Imp was fitted with twin mirrors because Regs wise was between a hatchback which needed one and an estate that by law needed two mirrors.Plus Its always useful when able to adjust drivers one on the move as I've found my mirrors often become out of adjustment after car shows when visitors have knocked them.Re Drew's comment of not being on other cars have a look at Avengers my 72 GL had these mirrors [compared side by side to my Cally]. I found some mirrors with a local depot that dealt in Peugeot spares but had some Avenger and Hunter stuff because by these days factory was making such as Alpine and was sourcing parts from French factories as well as UK

Early Rootes bonnet mirrors I've driven behind on earlier Imps are good if the mirror heads are the bigger type

Biggest problems I had was using clamp type mirror on stainless strip by winding window > vibration was always too bad

I've used spotlamps on plastic bumpers by using big washers underneath plastic to spread load and stop vibration and am confident this will do job for mirrors on fibre glass bonnet

IMHO flat glass on any exterior mirror is utterly and completely useless , Ive managed by accident to find an interior mirror just like an Imps one but slightly curved along its length , a sort of wide angled mirror , its in the Vusky and is fantastic , if only i could find another :roll:
