Right then, its been a busy couple of weeks...
After speaking to my Stepdad (Pete of Lite Welding Ltd) it was decided it was time to build a car 'for me' rather than buying cars that were done / nearly done and then finishing/changing them to how i wanted them to be.
The plan was set I would find the body / running gear for what i wanted and Pete would then get it to the rolling stage with all the major fabrication work etc done ready for me to finish plumbing it and wiring it etc.
So here goes...
After lots of looking at this for inspiration:
I found this:
Then decided to spend a day in Leicester buying this, to steal the running gear:
The plan is to get all the major components together, then get it down the workshop asap for mocking up and to start work.
So far I have the body, chassis, rear axle, engine and box, and front suspension (Just need to get them stripped out )
Still looking for a set of both front and rear slot mags - Rears need to be 7-8" wide can be any stud pattern as I will need to get a set of half shafts made up.Fronts need to be as thin as possible and preferably 4 stud ford 108mm, what you guys got?
The car already has its name: 'Maggie's Gold', thought of by my mother of all people. The reasoning behind the nameis a personal one, my Gran passed away last year and her name was Margerat hence the 'Maggie' and the 'Gold' is down to the fact some of the money that was left to me is being invested in the car (though not according to my gramp :whistle.)
How things look so far, everything tucked away in the garage:
More to follow as parts are collected /stripped etc and the buiulding starts, hope you guys enjoy and can help out with all the questions 'I WILL' be asking.
