OK here we go again.

Can't help myself. Whistle

Hopefully this will be a record of the build history of yet another one for Adelaide (or there abouts anyway)

More to the story as it happens.

In the mean time I will be asking for your assistance and expertise through out the build, although this will be my second restoration, I intend to go the whole hog, or at least a small pigglet Whistle.

Being a Sports, my son is keen to help and will therefore be doing the welding of the drop floor pans if he wants to ever get to drive it, (being 5 foot 12 +).

Getting it all orf to a flying start and knocked up a rotisserie affair to detail the chassis before the body arrives. (don't look too closely at my welding, it held together)

Looks like you're off to a good start, I'll be watching with much interest. Care to let slip any other plans?

Engine
Note the little damp spot underneath. It was getting a little excited as the body was about to arrive ............   Grin



Picking up the body



In my spare time, (which has not been too much lately) Stripped the multi layers of paint off the body tub, (a bit left to go though)

Looking good there Phil, any special plans for this one or is that garage staff only secret?

So black, silver and teal then?

I got half an idea on three other colours which I reckon are probably more on the money and an associated design but I'll keep that to myself.
