    My toys

    First off is a 100e, only been on it 7 years. 2.1 Pinto 5 speed and Escort axle.

    i have a Thames 400e panel van, it came to me with a Rover in the back, that got ripped out and I have a Buick 5.7 and TH400 to go in, when I get 5 minutes.
    Bodywork is dire, gutters removed and re-welded by a YTS pidgeon with a catapult welder on crack. I've heard of baked bean cans used on exhausts before, but never gutters.


    And the major project at the moment is a .....a......sorry, I don't know if I can bring myself to say it....... a restoration!
    1960 Thames truck, bought whilst I was ****ed up on ebay, and it was gonna be a six months and on the road job.

    Started like this



    Met a Brazillian rainforest like this


    Had some metal work done, a bit of filler and paint, and now looks like this



    Hopefully it shouldn't be too long before it's on the road and legal.

    Thanks. It has taken a lot of time, and a few bob to get it back in to shape. And a few good mates who help out, and generally take the **** about leather elbow patches, flat caps and slippers etc.

    The van is not the one in Street Machine. That was chopped, with white at the front and pink at the back. A lot of people ask that question.
