Mirror Re-silvering

Frank Shore has kindly sent me the following information:

“The silvering had deteriorated on one of the wing mirrors on my TC. I googled and found this business which resilvers mirrors. Contact details:

Daniel Frater, Mirrorworks, Alma Yard, Alma Street, SHREWSBURY SY3 8QL and email is info(at) [Please substitute @ for (at)].

I sent the mirror glass (wrapped in lots of bubble wrap) off and 10 days later the newly re-silvered mirror arrived back, all for a price of £35. Mirror looks good and I’ve attached a photo.

I highly recommend this service, which may be of interest to other members.”

Ed’s note: Frank has also emailed to say that he’s received good service from Station Motor Sport at Station Yard, Melton Road, Market Harborough LE16 7TQ. Tel: 01858 545436. email address is  Contact(at) [Please substitute @ for (at)].

Ask for Jonathon. He’s done some excellent work on my TC, but seems to be able to turn his hand to any motor vehicles. They have a machine shop with a large range of machines. Sensibly priced as well.”

And to close….. Derek Cashsent me this pic of a rather sad looking tappet chest gasket. He’s bought and fitted a thin steel one with the two nitrile bonded cork gaskets.
