Re: Austin A35 Project

Well it's not the fuel injected one but it is mine! Spend several hours yesterday getting access to my A35 in my late Mother's garage. As I expected the bonnet has been bent in, but I know of a few around or a man that might be able to "unbend" it. It took a while just to get to this stage as just i...

Re: What modern engine/gearbox to use

I think it is the same design as the Minor .. but the car is going to be pretty narrow compared to a Scooby. I can try and get you a rough measurement of the width of a Scooby flat-four as I have one on my garage .. albeit in the engine bay of my BRZ! ;) That would be the easier of the FA20 units to...

Re: What classic vehicles have you seen?

There's an XJS (under a cover) now parked on our road .. the owner normally has this parked on his driveway but the builder's are in. Can't see much of it as it's under a partial cover!

Re: What classic vehicles have you seen?

Followed a deep red E-Type V12 today .. travelling west on A40 near Uxbridge/Denham junction. :mrgreen: Top down (it wasn't raining earlier!)







Must have been owned by Lucifer at some point given the "666" in the registration! :o If the owner is on here, no offence meant .. the car's gorgeous!

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

You comments about Depo lights reminded me about the pair on the 206. After an altercation with a crash barrier on the M4 I needed a new pair ... and a few other big bits ... but when I can to fit the side lights the inner reflector was actually masking the side light hole!! I had to dremel the hole...
