The Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon, Warwickshire, England Becomes The British Motor Museum

March 21, 2016 Category :Uncategorized Off

Throughout all our tours of the UK and Europe the best motor museum we have ever been to has been the VW Autostadt (Car Town) in Wolfsburg in Germany. This has the benefit of being funded by a major motor manufacturer who at the time we visited were the 3rd largest manufacturer in the world. They briefly passed GM and Toyota to take the number 1 slot, before slipping back due to the current diesel defeat device issue. We spent a good few hours at Autostadt and it would probably take at least a whole day to do justice to its 69 acres and seven pavilions – one for each of the main brands in the VW Audi Group – VW, Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini, Skoda, Porsche and Commercial Vehicles.

The French Schlumpf museum at Mulhouse probably comes a pretty close second in quality if not in scale. The Porsche and Mercedes Benz museums aren’t far behind both being well laid out and professionally presented and as with VW they have the luxury of being manufacturer funded.

We have two local motor museums in our neck of the English Midlands – The Transport Museum in Coventry and the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon. Coventry Transport Museum is funded by Coventry City council and occupies a numbers of warehouses and commercial buildings fairly close to the city centre. Its displays cover everything from the Coventry bicycle industry, bus and truck making, through to the car industry. This has been extended over the years and in July of 2015 they renovated, and now occupy, the 12th century grammar school building next door, which has lain virtually derelict for almost 40 years.

The Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon hasn’t really changed much since its inception 24 years ago. It was originally built to house the collection accumulated by the MG Rover Group (what remained of British Leyland) and is run as a charitable trust. It stands on land next to the Gaydon Proving Ground which has changed ownership a number of times. Since the demise of MG Rover the land has been owned by BMW, then Ford and latterly Jaguar, Land Rover (JLR). BMW never really did much with it other than adding a BMW Dixi to the display (a BMW version of the Austin 7, built under licence) and changed the name of the bar to ‘Tankstelle’ (filling station). During Ford’s stewardship a few Fords appeared and under JLR the displays of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles have increased a bit. But everything has always been in the original building. I have long thought the museum had scope for more displays to be added covering other parts of the British Motor industry, preferably in other buildings à la Autostadt.

The Heritage Motor Centre have now done something about this and in a big way. In the biggest change in their nearly 25 year history they have recently announced a re-branding, a remodelling of their main collection and the opening of a 2nd building, all at the same time.

Last year Gaydon received ‘Designated’ status from the UK government recognising their national and international significance and the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust have decided to re-brand. The re-branding to the British Motor Museum is not just a matter of changing their logo and letterhead, there are about 1,000 brown tourist road signs around the county that will also need changing.

At the end of November 2015 the museum closed for nearly four months to re-furbish the main building and re-present much of their collection. An introductory gallery within the new visitor entrance sets the scene and flows into distinctive new themed zones, including ones for movie cars, prototypes and sports cars. The popular ethos of allowing visitors to get up close to the exhibits will not change, but there are now different ways to view the cars, with many on raised plinths and some at eye level. Families and enthusiasts alike are able to stroll along the Time Road, look under more open bonnets, and enjoy new interactive content including sound, film and touch screens.

Construction of the 2nd building – the Collections Centre is complete and houses around 150 cars from the Jaguar Heritage Collection and many of the unseen vehicles from the museum’s own collection. The Jaguar museum used to be based at the Browns Lane factory site in Coventry, but Jaguar needed more space and moved production to Castle Bromwich on the edge of Birmingham. A manufacturer’s motor museum in the middle of what became a housing estate was a bit pointless and Jaguar closed it down in 2012. To my mind moving the collection to a bigger, better, new building at Gaydon is the ideal solution both for Jaguar and Gaydon.

During my visit they had already moved in around 30 of their cars, with another 30 or so follow. I have always liked the way Jaguar look after their collection as they aren’t treated as museum pieces and are still used at major classic events like the Mille Miglia or as Jaguar PR cars. The 30 that were in place had been driven there under their own power, not loaded onto transporters. These include such historic Jaguars as a 1933 SS1, an SS100, their Le Mans winning C-Type, the last e-Type ever built et al.

The new Collection Centre also houses workshops which can be viewed from above so visitors can see the cars being worked on. Most museums operate on the iceberg principle where only about 10% of their collection is visible and the rest is below sea level, or at least either in storage or work in progress. The purpose of this floor is to show off more of the hidden part of the iceberg.

The collection includes all sorts of unusual cars, concepts, prototypes, last off the line etc, many of which have never been seen by the public before and need quite some explanation.

For many years the main museum has displayed the 1,000,000th Austin which was retained by the factory and the bodywork had been signed by all the workers onsite on the day. The varnish over the signatures is now cracked and they are all but illegible, but the varnish cannot be cleaned or restored. Following this theme the last of the Montego line and Metro line are on show, complete with signatures in fading felt pen. One signatory on the Montego even thought to add the date 9-4-2008 (9 April). A date to store away for a future pub quiz trivia question.

Next to this is what looks like a battered van version of the Austin Metro with rear panels pop-riveted into where the windows would have been on the car. Stickers with a local phone number make it look like it was used as a pizza delivery van. Looking carefully through the bonnet vents it is clear that there is no engine in the front. In fact this was the test ‘mule’ for the mid engined MGF sports car and the engine is behind the front seats mounted in a sub-frame.

A number of safety prototypes are also on display, some with rubber bumpers that would have put 1970s Volvos to shame. On many new cars you can now order rear facing cameras which will display on the satnav screen when reversing or can be used to enhance the capability of the rear view mirrors. In the 1970s the technology didn’t exist to miniaturise either the cameras or the screens, so as a way of improving the rear view on an MGB GT they tried mounting a rear facing periscope on the roof. No surprise that it never made it into production.

The Heritage Motor Centre has always been well worth a visit and now there are more reasons for even the most arden of classic car anoraks to include the British Motor Museum in any trip to this part of the Midlands.

Things You Need To Know About Installing A New Garage Door Motor

March 21, 2016 Category :Uncategorized Off

When it comes to garage door motors, the saying ‘Local is lekker’ certainly fits the bill. It doesn’t matter what motor you buy, eventually it will need a repair, and when that time comes you want to have purchased a motor with good backup support, and long-term sales of parts and spares. Cheap Chinese imports are constantly on the market, their lower prices may be attractive, but when no spares are available for a simple problem, it means buying a whole new machine. The truth is that all garage door motors have parts made in China, but there are more well-established companies that assemble their motors here in South Africa, and/or have offices in most major cities. So do your homework, or call us to find out more about the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Battery Backup:

Let’s face it, we’ve all been left stranded in some way or form by our friends at Eskom, and the truth is that load shedding is here to stay, on and off, for the foreseeable future. So what can you do to ensure you don’t get trapped in or out of your garage? The first option, and a necessity with any automated door installation, is to have an emergency release mechanism installed. An emergency release mechanism is mounted into the curtain of the door, with a key hole facing outwards. A steel cable is then run from this mechanism to the motors emergency release leaver. When the power goes out, you’ll need to insert your key into the mechanism, give it a twist, and a pull, and this will in turn pull the steel cable and release the door from the motor. Although emergency release mechanisms are highly effective, they still require you to leave the comfort of your car or home in order to unlock the door, and then you will have to physically lift the door by hand. This can be problematic if the door is very heavy, and if it doesn’t want to stay in the open position, you’ll need someone else to hold the door open while you move your car.

The second option is to have some sort of battery backup system powering your garage door motor. This allows you to stay comfortable and safe in your car or home, but still able to access your garage during power outages. Just like gate motors, your garage door motor will need to automatically switch between 220v and 24v, and have the ability to charge your batteries while 220v is on. Unfortunately not all motors are designed to work off 24v, and all older model motors will fall into this category. Motors like the Digi 2, Gemini, Brano, Alladin, or the Pro Alpha 2000 are all 220v motors, and are therefore not compatible with 24v battery backup. Advanced UPS systems with the use of inverters can be utilized for these motors, but the expense of these systems are far too high to warrant going this direction. So unless you have a battery, charger, auto switch, and inverter setup currently running other devices in your house, then the only other option is to purchase a new model 24v garage door motor.

Modern 24v motors actually have a higher power rating than older 220v motors, they also have built-in battery protectors, auto switch functionality, auto close option, extensive sensitivity settings, and auto charging. Not to mention a one year warranty, and most come with two new remotes. Contact us today to learn more about battery backup in garage door motors, and to find out about our free door service when purchasing a new 24v battery backup motor.

Which motor do I use for which door?

The various types of garage doors work in different ways, so the manner in which they open and close is important to consider when deciding which motor you get, and how it is set up.

Roll Up Doors:

Require either a vertically mounted motor such as the Digi 2, or a shaft mounted motor such as the ET Blue Roll Up Motor. As mentioned above, the Digi 2 cannot accommodate conventional battery backup, but it’s a strong and reliable motor, and can even be used to operate two roll up doors simultaneously. Using a strong wormdrive mechanism much like a cork screw, this tried and tested motor has managed to outlast the competition, and I have even come across a few that are pushing on 20 years in operation.

The shaft mounted motors can only operate one door at time, and are not suited to large double size roll up doors, or very old stiff doors. However when used with new doors or those in good working condition, shaft mounted motors like the ET Blue Roll Up can give many years of battery assisted, silent, and smooth operation. An added bonus is that this motor comes with two very good quality remotes.

Sectional Garage Doors:

Sectional garage doors vary greatly from door to door. However, regardless of the size of the door, or materials used, every door should open smoothly, and without too much effort. Steps should be taken to check the door, and fix any issues before a motor is installed. This will ensure your motor is not put under too much strain, and will prolong it’s life greatly. A variety of motors are available for sectional garage doors, but they all work in exactly the same way, unlike with roll up doors. Selecting the best combination of power, compatibility, features, price, and backup support, is our specialty.

Tip Up Doors:

Tip up doors operate in a manner that is a little awkward for motor installation. The motor shaft needs to be hung at an angle, sloping towards the ground. This allows for the natural action of the door while opening and closing, and ensures a smooth operation. Some of the older tip up doors operate with counter-weight mechanisms, instead of the more modern spring setup. These counter-weight doors cannot be automated, as the door needs to be pulled/pushed at different angles through its operation. It is however, possible to upgrade the door to a spring mechanism, and then automate the door as usual.

Extra Height / Caravan Height Doors:

Different length motor shafts are available for doors that are higher than usual. If you have an extra height door and need some advise on automation, why not give us a call and we’ll come inspect, measure, and provide you with a free quote for your new motor.
