    51 Austin 10cwt Countryman


    just started to rebuid my (devon)countryman for the 3rd time ,only had it for 35years but its that old story .took it of the road in 99 to freashen it up and fit the sills of my drag car ,by the time the sills and bulkhead were cut there wasant much holding the floor pan in so its now channeled 3inches.main reason was chassis to ground clearance !!!!!as already slamed by fitting MGB wishbones and shocks.Anyway got put to one side (long boring story)but now have the space to work on it,as I am between jobs atthe mo (anyone need a MOT Tester Malvern area?) had time to strip the doner Vaux Omega .Last 2 weeks fitted the engine and box and just set up diff mounts.So for those that like to know its 30L v6 manual,omega diff,omega hubs made into Dedion rearaxle,front hubs on scratch built arms(this is to keep abs & traction control) with airbags .Plan is for rear clam doors to be remade using VW Type 2 (bay) rear doors as the originals are naff and have no seals.will see if I can post some pics of how it was .

    ended up cutting the rear seat/fuel tank area out ,diff now set up,working out how the trans tunnel will go.using the one out of the omega .had to mave the rear seat back 6inches or so to clear front seats as they are back a good distance ,combination of 3inch chanell and bulkhead move and long legs.now sat by the b post ,its like its had a roof chop for vision to the front ,need to get the seat lower some how.
