Look what I brought home last night ..

Recommended Posts

Floors and tunnel in 😊

The floor fixings were originally an alloy cage welded on the panel underside, holding a square bsf nut captive. They never fare so well though - as the bolt seizes and then end up tearing the alloy.

So this is done with M6 nutserts and a die running over the 1/4 bsf sheradised bolts.

Lap lap belts in too...

I bought some stable matting to go in the back - 10mm thick and it weighs 23kg!

I’m beyond excited 😆 

Just waiting on the wiper button and the hood arriving in the post. With the hood will come the door flaps, the strap to hold up the seat box lid over the petrol tank, the covers for the tailgate chains and a couple of bits to go on the windscreen support brackets.

This is Jim next to the drivers door, Graham next to him, and crouching down is Em - who came with me to collect it 10 years ago, when this thread was started.

Lovely offer Ross 😊. We’ll be taking it through the tunnel at some point - so would love to stop for a brew on the way ️

Look forward to seeing it on a tour of the highlands one day soon :i-m_so_happy:

That looks beautiful, well done.

How long did it take you to get to this point?

I won't be asking the other question....

I haven’t asked the other question either ...

After being pulled back to a rolling chassis, the repair work started in earnest at the end of 2017.

Also to work out how to fit it in the garage ! It’s a fraction too tall.

Couple more pictures:
