Some of you may know that I normally build hot rods etc, but on a smaller scale, and I usually post stuff On The Shelf.
Well I am now going full scale, again, so here is my new ride, a 1959 Moggy. Got it from a guy on facebook, who brought it all the way down from Norwich for me, nice chap. Even though he towed it, he was determined to get it started and show me that it did actually run. But things being what they are, the car was being temperamental.
The previous owner says it needs setting up, as he managed to get it running. It started this morning and now it won't. Think that the timing needs doing, the new plugs need cleaning and the SU carb needs adjusting. The other little problem, is the relay does not kick for the fan. So might get a new fan and wire it straight to a toggle switch.
The motor is a Vauxhall 1.6 with a Sierra 5 speed. Will do changes as I go and when I can get the parts I want. Paint can wait though. So am on the look out for custom parts, metalflake steering wheel, Barefoot pedals, gauges, ally interior panels, bucket seats, that sort of thing.
Now, where's my spanner?
