libby the deluxe

Post by chris d »

a bit of progress over the last 2 days
painter organised
industrial paint stripper found and bought,waiting to collect with the painter.(cant sell to general public).
bought a fibreglass stripping wheel and did the inside of the bonnet.(might as well start with the awkward bits).
treated with kurust because there is rust in the metal (common late imp problem).
ive left the back edge of the bonnet in paint because I tried to remove the bracing to get underneath but you cant get at the spot welds without going all
the way through so a bit of welding to sort the pilot holes.also the front edge has been welded inside so that is to sort.but no progress until next day of (Wednesday)
after ive serviced the jag for its mot.
pictures below,comments good or bad welcome

Lovely work, Chris. :D :D

I've not heard of a glassfibre stripping wheel. Do they work well? I am guessing so, based on the evidence of your pictures.

Don't press on with them!!! they wear away alot quicker- if you find a balance so they firmly hit the surface they work very well, and last!!
I bought these and were very impressed with them

hi paul
the bonnet is not to bad
plenty of pin holes so going to fiberglass and fill it
I don't think it warrants cutting the panel apart

more progress
yesterday and today I managed to bare metal the front end and paint with kurust.
I used the polycarbide wheel and some industrial paint stripper.
the polycarbide wheel is brilliant but noisy on large panels. (vibration etc)
this upset the neighbours last week.hence why I am trying the paint stripper this week.
its a bit messy as well as hazardous,so must be used outside with gloves etc
sand the surface and apply,wait 20=25 mins for it to react then scrape away.sounds easy :!:
theres 4 layers and it does a couple at a time so time consuming etc.
it is recommended by the painter etc. not nitromors.
this morning I made a start on the heater box with the stripper,then after half an hour I had a visitor
Bradford council environment officer :shock: :shock:
wanted to know why I was running a business from a private house :!: :!: :?:
he had reports of excessive noise and complaints from neighbours that I was working all hours.
I asked him how this was possible seeing as I drive a truck 5 days a week and this was my hobby.
he basicly said that if there was any more complaints he would be back.
he went so out came the poly wheel and the black and recker,ear defenders and mask for me. plenty of noise for the neighbour
who incidently is 4 houses away and has double glazing.
watch this space to see if im locked up
dought it, I know the law about noise etc
pictures for your approval

Nice work, Chris. :D

It sounds as though you need to find some dirt on your neighbour and serve it up to them on a silver platter. :x Loud music for hours on end? Friends coming and going at all hours? There must be something. Report them for it, no matter how trivial. :idea:

Re: libby the deluxe

A few tips about your problems with neighbours and noise. I know because I've had the same problem for years. Visits from the council, environmental health, planning etc, along with recently regular visits from the police. The last was because I had the audacity to start one of my Clans, fully road legal, at 7.20pm!!. That resulted in an afternoon visit by the local PCSO who wasn't too happy when I refused to limit working in my garage to daytime due to having to work for a living. Also didn't like me pointing out that noise nuisance was a civil matter and that I could see no reason why in my opinion she was wasting her time and the taxpayer's money. Her answer to this was that it could be come a police matter resulting in me being served with an ASBO!

The one thing I've learnt, however, is to keep the Council on your side. Point out politely that you are just pursuing a hobby. We found the council officers to be very open with us and in fact they could see no problem. What they did say, however, is that when they receive a number of complaints from the same person and they have investigated and found no problem then any further complaints, even if they may be justified, tend to be quietly put to one side and ignored.

Despite it being annoying I have restricted any noise to what I consider reasonable hours, i.e. 9.00pm, but I still tend to work in the garage to far later than that. Another thing I do is keep a record of the times when I'm making any noise, even when I start up one of my Clans and go for a drive. If the Council decide to proceed further with a complaint it is usual for them to require the complainant to keep a log of the times of any nuisance and your own records can be very helpful in providing a response. It's even worth letting neighbours know when you will be engaging in noisy work and roughly how long it will take. A visit to apologise when you have been noisy later than normal is always worthwhile as its shows that you are being considerate.

All a bit of nuisance but don't let them get you down and keep on with the good work.

Pete Richards.

p.s. When they come looking for help when their car won't start, as they usually do, just politely decline on the grounds that you don't want to cause a nuisance!

....well, working on my modern [in the back lane, behind my terraced property].. Oil/Filter.. a neighbour, with whom I have been on 'nodding terms' with since moving in, ambled past and said "Ayye..busy?". I said it was just the usual bits & bobbs... he continued "Ayye..binn done it all, Ayye.. too old, got rid of mee car now"....

Neighbours! on one side I service their cars every year for them, joined to them I recovered a minibus for them so they are ok with me, across the road are the nebby neighbours who know everything thats happening on the street, which is ok as I know someone is always watching if I'm away!
The other side of me complained about the dogs barking when I used to have them, and complained to the environmental health about it - in between the letter and the visit i set up a video camera and recorded him, with a stick over the back fence, banging it on the window of the back door and getting the dogs to bark, environmental helth had a lovly police man come and watch the video and have a word with him next door and I haven't heard a peep out of them in the 10 years since!
I do worry that he makes his own firework and blank bullets for his country and western weekends in his shed though, but his use of the bench grinder till ten at night just gives me 'ammunition' (a pun :D |) it I ever do make any noise.

Annnnny way - Libby
shes looking good and solid, you should be thankful that the paint is so tough, it looks like it has protected her well, the bonnet and front valence look good without too much crud underneath it all.
keep at it mate - you know what it feels like at the different stages!

If you need any front floor repair sections I have left and right front floor sections cut from well under sealed car are in great cond, they are left over from my Husky rebuild if you can use then I will bring them back from Hartlepool. Keep up the good work, I understand they have a good panel repair shop in Armley Prison.
