Medusa vid update
v pestered me to do it
You need a heater in your garage, lol!
Theo is cute
Theo is a star! Medusa is looking even better - and the tail lamps seem to "blend in" better on the video so "A big Well Done Robert".
I'm appalled, I had my surround sound speakers turned right up anticipating extremely loud exhaust noises, and another damned good excuse to write to the Times about the feckless reckless youth of today being allowed on the Queens highway with such contraptions.............
Yours, deflated but impressed.
Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells

i have my propane heate Mark , just avoid it if i can cos moistness can be occuring .
Thank You Phil , yes somebody visited me the other day and said "you really have to see it in the flesh ,pictures don't do it justice " which was nice of him , especially since we then went and thrashed the noodles out of his 1310cc turbo mini on the dyno (168bhp/14psi)
OH Bernard !!. i am sorry to have had you on the edge of your seat fidgetting left and right with your speakers ,telling everyone to be quiet ,only to receive me waffling and chasing the Theo monster ..... should be running soon ,after i get the rest of the body done ,,, in fact , i imagine mot time will be next run up
i got nuthin'
Well i have been a bit of a pantywaister ,and not been updating much ...
so latest is ..
made my transmission tunnel out of the 2mm and got it to the point of fitting and bolting it down ..
boosted by the unexpected success of this , i went for the headlights , then realised i needed to make the radiator shroud first ...bum ..
so out with the carboard ..
today its a fetching shade of pizza..
cut some shapes in the garage ...
made it a it longer and pointyer ..
then toyed with the idea of making beaded snakey highlights , so practised on a old bit of ally plate ..
and drew some designs ..
then it was on to dragging out a rough old bit of cabinet
marking it out ..
and getting at it with the thin disc ...yet again ..
leaving me with these..
a afternoon of bashing folding grinding and general tailoring got me to here ,with a test design on it ..
but in the end decided on plain ..
then started on the top shrouds ..
and to save incipient vegetationlike transformation of my viewers , here's the end result ..
spent a lot of time trying to get a nice even join to the bonnet ..
now at last i could get on with the lights ...this would then tie in wit how i fix the bottoms of the side panels ..
lighting mock up so far ..
this week i hope to make the fittings and get that all bolted on ..
I like the progress.
Nice panels, just check the regs on distance in from edge of vehicle for lights, they may need to be a bit wider apart.
Change the number plate for black and silver though!
