I'll be there, sham you guys can't make it.

Norton got MOT'd today, however I'm not sure if I can get a flippin tax disc (Idiot Ray lost the V5 and insurance paperwork!!).

I would do it online if i could, but no logbook! According to DVLA, due to the silly bankholidays they have a massive backlog of tax discs to post and as long as you have one 'in the post' you will be ok from 1st to 9th May!

Whoops neglected this :oops:

The fronts and rears are different because of the dia...

The fronts are 13"x5J and the rears 15"x7J

We have given up with the idea of getting a minor chassis, so one will be made from scratch following a purchase in N London at the weekend...

As you may have all guessed progress on this has stalled at the moment, primarily due to lack of space...

However I am getting a new "unit" to work in at the beginning of next month which should provide enough space to start work again!

Matt is this a new place of work for you or a rental temporary Pickup workshop, either way very handy, looks like mains power and decent lighting too, and most of all loads of workspace around the vehicle.

Okay... very little has happened with this :( Other priorities and vehicles have been getting in the way :s and I am now working in North Wales, nearly 300 mile from the pickup... The workshop is also full of other vehicles (well what did you expect???)

There is a change in plan with the engine and gearbox following a recent aquisition - approximately tripling the original engine capacity and doubling the cylinder count :o 8)

The new chassis is pretty much jigged up and ready to weld, but I need to remove all the stuff on top of it first, and sell my spare transit!

Once the chassis is uptogether and painted building up can start... the question is what colour should the chassis be?? :lol:

Sorry to hear you cant get at her often enough but perhaps you can use the time to plan ahead
although getting your hands dirty and seeing her progress is a much better option

Holy thread revival batman!

Nothing has happened with this - other priorities :( I am aiming to get some work done on the other 2 minors soon (anyone want to buy a white convertable?)
