    RAF Fly past for Donald Trump

    As I heard it its already so leaky all you have to do is switch the pumps off? Do any of you guys drive your Fords through there much? How long does it take? Is there a fee or toll to use it? Are there still ferries as well? Always been curious about it.

    Yes but actions speak louder than words, couldn't you guys just spare one stray payload and claim it was an accident? LOL

    The message by flying in formation over Trumps head or missing the opportunity to save the world and not show him first hand their attack capabilities?

    Two in one here. 110mm Cartridge films and Side Projectors. Combined for an even rarer 110mm Slide Projector by famous Icon brand Leica.

    Powder Coating Mk2 Door Handles

    Thats a good point. It may pay to flush the lock out first. The locks would come out regardless but its the lock part though that needs something more than just painting. It chips within weeks with keys jabbing into it so a hard coating of some sort is in order. The rears will work well without having any lock barrel.

    Powder Coating Mk2 Door Handles

    I had originally investigated anodising but it seems a bit of a dying art with not many places available to do it. The ones I spoke to catered more for larger commercial jobs than a few small car parts. I will keep looking though now that you have said that. Once you pull them apart into the three major parts that need colouring the thickness of the powder coating shouldn't affect it to much at least not on the handle parts. The lock barrel is a tight fit but the coating is really only on the end cap and if masked to the same extent as original it shouldn't be a problem I wouldn't think. I seriously am considering chrome ones now!

    That's a low blow! Exporting a national embarrassment. Those shows only survive through majority viewing support of guess where?? No one but yourselves to blame for that one! lol

    Powder Coating Mk2 Door Handles

    You may well be right. I always thought they were anodised through the years but was told that it was to thick for that and most likely powder coated. I thought the finish was also too fine a finish for early powder coating but that was the only thing anyone could think it was. I hadn't thought of enamelling. I also always assumed it was the same coating as the black bumpers only thicker though. I couldn't see them enamelling a whole bumper though. Ford were too cheap for that. Modern hard powder coating is all I can come up with though as a replacement. Im just worried by the baking process and if it will damage the tumblers or not. Also as you say too it is thick but so too is whatever the original stuff is except for the lock barrel where its very thin and goes translucent with age. There is the option to ceramic coat them which is a bit thinner but I noted in their colour range it wasn't as dark a black as it needs to be.
