    • Ah every man to his own i say  hahaha, i shaw we can find a wee fine brew to you liken fitzy 
    • Wow - that's some nice fitment going on there. All your gaps look better than when the car was new. I read somewhere that back in the 60s, it was allowable for the chassis to be out of square by an inch, which is why there are endless slotted holes and shims to get everything right, if required. I also saw a car show on TV where some guys were prepping a car to show quality and inconsistent panel gaps were simply unacceptable. They messed around with the hinges and even welded in new metal where there was no other option. They would even add pot metal to shiny trim in order to extend it, if it was too short from the factory. Amazing stuff. Anyway, lookin' good.
    • Thanks Kiwi. I use Penrite exclusively and probably always will. Like you, whenever oil was cheap, I stocked up 10 litres at a time, the reasoning being that once the 389 was running, I'd run engine flush through it, then every few hot runs, drain and replace oil & filter until all the crud was out of the engine. Since I am now pulling the engine and tearing it down, I'll use those cheaper oils to get through the first few hot runs. If engine work is needed, I will of course chuck some additives in to assist with initial break in. I'm hoping to get away with a teardown & inspection only since the compression seems to be very good. It'd be nice to get some hardened valve seats installed and a valve job just to freshen it up. It's never going to go on any significant runs, maybe 100km max. Anyway, thanks to you and Last Indian for the advice. I'll keep an eye on the TBN numbers in future - I have always gone by the SAE classification in the past. Never heard of DB Export. I drank Steinlager the last time I flew Air NZ - a fine beer. We might have to do a tasting session once we rock up at your joint later this year.
