A job for the next years

Post by lomh 13 » Fri Nov 29, 2019 7:14 pm

Hello all
My english is not better, but I'll try to show you what I do with my 1936 LA10.
It is now in what will be the workshop

Interior and floor are away for chassis to be painted
Image
The parts are refurbished after dismantled, waiting for refitting

One part is missing. I'll have to refabric a shock absorber rod link

Sorry for my english. If it is too difficult for you to read this, tell me :D

Hello Lohm,
I wish you well with your project. Your pictures bring back memories of three years ago when I fell for an AC in a similar state and I am still on with now. I hope you are lucky and the body is in good enough condition that you can retrieve it without too many problems. Sadly mine was rotten to the core and needed a complete new body.
Don’t worry about your English it is more than good enough to be understood.
Colin,
I may be slow but I’m rough as well !

Looks in fairly good condition compared to some projects I've seen in the past.

Good luck with it!

Yes it is.
Very little rotten wood, the chassis is in very good condition only superficial rust, as the metal body.
I don't had a look to the engine and gearbox, but the steering and brakes are OK.
The difficult for me, is that I have no user manual, no workshop manual, no electrical diagram, so it take a long time to understand how it works.
For example, It take me one day to understand how the dipping reflectors where operated. Now I know everything on these, but what a wasted time :(

No manuals and trying to work out what is what - yes, I know that feeling :roll:
