Mine Rolls, and steers (just) but when it comes out of the garage it will be to allow the Old Mondeo in finaly for it to be broken up. But I can't do that in my current condition so will potter on doing little bits and bobs. Need to take the passenger side panel off to do the exhaust.

Will be good to see yours out in the open

TT

Default Its a Roller

Can't believe it nearlly a year to this day my chassis kit arrived and she rolled out of the garage!
Manage to get the gf to help get the chassis out of the garage and spend saturday morning building it up.
Managed to get the engine and box in as well.
Other than being completed knackered I'm well chuffed massive milestone, it actually looks a bit like a car now when people come round!

Big question what next, get the engine running (need megajolt, carbs manifold and some wiring) sort the brakes, bodywork???

If i were you Mike i would fit all brake lines, fuel lines and wiring harness next, while there is a minimum amount of parts on your chassis. That will make your life a lot easier, I didnt do it in that order but i wish i had lol. Also if you havn't done so already i would fit your steering coupling and fuel tank as well.

All just my opinion though.

Cheers Dan.

Nice one Mike , a great milestone of your build & as Kev says " that smile says it all"

Its alot easier being able to roll it out onto the drive to work on it rather than on the build table etc .

I look forward to the first start up video

cheers
andy
