Re: Front ash frame rotten

Hi Al,
I have managed to remove the ash section from the Doner car that I bought last year. Interestingly that was in perfect condition.

So I need to remove the old rotten wood and replace the section from the doner car..

Anybody need a 1939 LA11 Chassis :D

Front ash frame rotten

The near side ash frame that supports the front door and windscreen is completely rotten. I guess the drain hole in the sunroof has just leaked water over the frame and caused the rot.

Has anyone replaced this section of the frame?

Re: Rear wheel arch NS

Hi Tony,
thanks for the pictures...

What is the size of the ash you used?

Don't suppose you want to make another arch :D

Thanks Steve

Rear wheel arch NS

Gent's
not sure quite what to do, with my Lanchester La 11 1939

The wheel arch wooden frame is rotten and there is no strength there at all.

Has anybody got a template of the arch or know anybody that could help?

Re: Removing paint from Lanchester LA11

Thanks Al,
I have been using Aqua Steel for the interior, which oxides and turns things black. It was the best rust inhibitor that my research could find.
