New Four Ashes Products Due in Shortly.
We are now testing a new design of sump gasket for the VB6 series & DB series engines, it is still made of a type / style of Nebar cork as original, it can't be crushed with the bolts, steel washers & alloy washers unlike the original, so once fitted correctly & tightened it doesn't need any further attention.
Recently we have got Jean's MkIII DHC back on the road after a lengthy mechanical rebuild (Sept 17), after a small amount of use we broke down & realised that Hazard Warning lamps are now an essential fitting, several customers over recent months have had them fitted, we have fitted them to Jean's MkIII but using a better switch than the Lucas one (made in China), we have now got stock of this switch & they are now sold as a kit.
54172 MkII & MkIII Saloon stay assembly, trunk (boot) lid N/S is now being made in steel then chromed as original, we already make the spring 54205.
Neil has just made the panel beating buck to make the heater box for DB2 to early DB MkIII, this is part of our intention to make complete heater units to replace the missing ones from cars just under restoration at present., he has also made the base plate buck, both have to have alignment fittings installed to get repeatability.

Scuttle side vent reinfocing bracket, this stops the paint cracking around the side air vent on MkII's & MkIII's, not listed in the parts book so it doesn't have a part number, see MkIII body fittings inc oddities.

A 52mm two eared wire wheel 'spinner spanner' that uses nylon bobbins to protect the wheel spinner ears, it uses a 27mm socket & breaker bar to undo the 'spinners' & a torque wrench to do them up (not supplied) , this joins its smaller 42mm brother for undoing / doing up the knock on wire wheel spinners on 42mm hubs.
