" I would rather be hit by the 60s Caddilac, as it was likely to be driven slower and less aggressively than the 2019 mondeo and therefore my chances of survival greatly increased" , (but I accept the theory )
and here is where I place a smile to reiterate my flipant comment showing its in the best intended humour
I'm at the early stage of deciding how to build my 33 Austin. BIVA worries me but it's the only solution if I want the car to sit right. The alternative is a Scimitar chassis but it wouldn't tuck under the car properly so the ride would be high.
I'm still looking but my worries are many- E glass (at least it's flat), running a brake line or a wire somewhere the tested dissagrees with, getting a certified petrol tank (or can I use the original?), getting all the interior and exterior to meet radius requirements without touching the patina on the car, what needs covering, what shouldn't be covered, clear sight lines (does the A post get in the way?) the list is endless and maybe I'm overthinking it.
What if I want to build it hybrid or fully electric?
I guess if I were giving the advice it would be read the manual and the answers are there. It's got me questioning if I should even start or just run it as an unrestored standard car!
I'd really like to purchase a copy of your guide- I'd asked you a while back but didn't manage to get one, didn't want to chase you for it as I've only been here a few weeks and it seemed impolite!
The facebook group sounds like something I need to steer me to building it properly.
For this summer I think I'm gonna get it going as is- with a clearcoat on the body. I can then build the new chassis for it in slower time.
