Just teasing us! It looks good - is that Green (Pinewood?) or a blue. Can't quite see on my old screen. Cheers. G.

wow a year since I last posted in this section and the car is not much further on !

I took it to have a full rollcage fitted last weekend it should be ready to collect next week
I have now amassed quite a lot of the parts required to finish it

the struts,calipers and radiator can now all go away to be refurbed

will get some photos up when it comes back !

Looking good Andy, those wheels are very good on the car. And I'm tempted to put some of those bullet mirrors on mine, where did you get yours?
