Hi guys, I was hoping you could help me with a few items. when I got the car it was in a pile of parts and pieces. So I'm not sure how some of this goes together.

In this first picture, I'm wondering what the holes are for? (The five in a row, and then the two in the lower section of the cover.)



In this one, there must be some kind of hinge that this pin goes through to allow the cover to pivot. What am I missing?



What are these holes for on either side of the hinge? Both hinges have these two holes next to them.



And lastly (for now) where do I go to get as much of the weather stripping for the entire car as I can? Does someone sell The Sunbeam lettering for the trunk? I might leave it smooth though, so does someone know the font used to make the letters? And is there a place to get the parts needed to rebuild the window crank assemblies and door latches, ect. I need to rebuilt the doors.

Thanks!

Cool Them Parts & Pieces

A good idea is to download Sunbeam Specialties catalogue or call Rick and get a hard copy for the outhouse. All those mystery holes are fastener locations for trim. The two on either side of the boot hinge are where the chromed posts go for various covers. Find an early shop manual (disc?) with exploded assembly views. Keep at it . . . . .

Default And Parts Manual

Many of the discs sold also include a copy of the Parts Manual. You need to make sure it has a complete Alpine Parts Manual. Tiger owners also need to have the Tiger Supplement Parts Manual, since many of the body, brakes, and suspension parts are common to the Alpine and Tiger. Rootes did not publish a standalone parts manual for the Tiger, like they did the Shop Manual. I have found the diagrams in the parts manual to be very helpful when trying to figure out what goes where. Some of the Alpine Parts Manuals I have seen as a PDF file do not have all of the sections (sometimes missing a section that is in common with Tigers).

Good luck with your Alpine project!

After sitting in the body shop for 10 months we are finally getting somewhere with the Liger build. First round of paint is finished. The color came out a bit darker than we were thinking, but now I couldn't be happier. I really like it and it is different than the car we are modeling. So that is a very good thing.
I should get the car back in the next few days so hopefully this will come together nicely in the next month or so. Fingers crossed.

We will forgive you for using a Chevy engine, but I love the stance.

What are you talking about? All Sunbeam Ligers come with LS motors!

Paint is finished. The car is coming home today!
