A slower week.....waiting for parts

This isn't a 'better than it left the factory' restoration - don't have the budget for that, but instead we are trying to source reasonable quality parts that won't break the bank

Flywheel skimmed to remove score marks





Brakes & brake line assembly underway






Fuel tank fitted





'A' Frame with new brackets fitted





A couple of wiring repairs



And Springs / shocks getting fitted

Hi Frenchy, Did you spray or hand paint the chassis? I'm about to take delivery of a Series 2a chassis and plan to do the same. 1966 S2a 109 aka Betsy

Hand painted with black satin 'G.I.O' from Buzzweld.
Degreased and rinsed, then painted directly onto the Galvanised Chassis. I suppose spaying might have been easier for all the nooks and crannies (of which there are dozens Crying or Very sad ).


Finish was OK, and I used about 1.5 litres in total 2000 D2 TD5 - ahhh bless
