Tag Archives: Syncro

Not much today. 

Hole marked for lower mounting point for electric mirrors.
Drilled to 9mm for the inner skin, 12mm for the outer skin.
Masked and primed, then painted, then waxed,then M6 rivnut fitted and more wax over the top.
Half smoked rear lights went on, flap lock fitted and rear number plate.

Didn’t have time for much today, mounted left hand door back on, sorted lower mounting for left electric door mirror and a couple of jobs at the back. 

Fuel breather pipe adapter fabricated.


We’ve used a pick up tank on the syncro, all well and good but the breather stub at the top of the tank is a different diameter to the van tank. The van tank has a stub size of 12mm however the pick up tank is 15mm.
It’s not something we stock so we had to make one, 12mm OD aluminium tube and some 15mm OD tube pressed into each other then the ends swaged. Tig welded together, etch primed then powder coated, all in house in about
30 mins. Well happy!
