Alternator conversion

Just installed an alternator on the Bedford K, the generator was good but the regulator wasn't playing the game.
Have used an 85 amp VN v8 alternator which was picked from storage in an unknown condition. Fitted all up, albeit with a 6 watt dash globe (until reading on here that 2w is the go).
It is charging fine and working great but I have no charge light at all. 2 watt globe is now installed. Getting a reading of 12 volt + on both sides of the globe.
Could the small amount of running with the 6 watt globe have damaged the regulator?

Best aftermarket door skins

G'day fellow members. I need to replace the lower section of a rusted door on my EH project. Before I hit the "buy it now" icon I would like some opinions regarding the best quality options out there. I want the rhr lower [1/2] door skin for my EH wagon. I'm not interested in re manufacturing someones idea of a skin, I would like a good quality item. So for those that have been there and done that please let me know your thought's.
Thanks Mal

running rough when hot

one for the diagnostic experts. My HT Belmont 186 starts fine, but after about 15 minutes of driving starts running rough, cutting out on acceleration and surging while cruising. It only started doing this fairly recently. The motor was reconditioned about 3000K ago, and spark plug leads, distributor car, rotor were all replaced, and the carby overhauled. Been running really well up until very recently. The coil died a week or so ago, which I replaced, and hoped this was the issue. But seems not.

Free Play

How much free play at the steering wheel should I be getting? Car sitting still, wheels straight ahead I have about 5cm free play before resistance is felt either way. Is this about normal or too much?
