Small update its been a while since I've posted anything.


I did a bit of a re jig on my roll cage replaced the front hoop and added some side bars.

I made a couple of seats just need to learn upholstery now.

And managed to get the diff and wishbones fitted.

bit more progress tonight got the rear shoes fitted.

also had a go at making an english wheel with left over steel at work. I've had a bit of a go with it but I'm going to need a fair bit of practice before trying some body work.

And as she stands at the moment the body work still needs some refining but it's getting there.


I'm very quickly running out of room in the garage.

Wow, Not many people roll their own body! Hats off to you!

As for the longest build, doubt it. I have been going for 9 years and not touched it in 4!
