    Default Restoring a Riley RMB 2.5 Litre

    A close friend has just bought a Riley that is in need of considerable work. He's discovered that a lot of the wood in the body work is rotten from water exposure. (Not surprising, and not a new problem - my Dad sold his Riley in 1960 because it had wood rot in the roof frames.) I guess the English wood and the glues used when they built the car were not suited to Australian conditions. Being as the owner of the car is a metal working guy, he has asked me if I'd like to get involved in the woodworking side of the restoration. I haven't decided whether I want to get involved yet.

    But anyway - does anyone know what Australian timber is best suited to use in the body framing of a car ?

    Any thoughts,

    This forum has been set up and will go live hopefully Sunday night 23rd August or Monday 24th August 2015 on the new Metalwork site: metalworkforums.com (not yet open for posting).

    Initially there will be 2 forums as suggested here they will be under the forum header:

    AUTOMOTIVE METALWORK
    and the forums will be:
    AUTO RESTORATION
    and
    AUTO PARTS / Wanted, For Sale - HELP

    All the posts that were here in this thread except for the 3 above have been moved to that forum but are not currently viewable.

    Cheers - Neil
