    Looking to build

    I'm gonna rope woody76 into helping me with a build this year, just got to decide what!

    I have a 3.9 V8 and manual box sat here waiting to fitted to something but I am unsure on what would be a good starting project.

    We both have a lot of car building experience along with body and fabrication too.

    Is there any threads you guys can point me to just to show whats involved, build threads and projects over time. Sorry if I am babbling a bit but been poorly the last few days.

    I have a car I am about to sell on which should give me some kind of funds to get me going.

    Depends how ambitious you are really. I personally would love to make a chopped, V8 Minor one day, but if you want a project more long term, you could do a T bucket. There seem to be so few T buckets in the UK. Up to you entirely though.

    I'm very ambitious my friend and V8 minor sounds very cool. Theres a few on ebay atm. Something short term for now I think just to get me hooked.

    Now that looks a wee bit nippy!

    Re: Looking to build

    Did I hear my name?
    Yes I do have a wicked Minor project for sale.
    I think it may be priced too high so make me an offer. I'm only about 80 miles from you guys so come and have a look, and I can deliver.
    Cheers...Paul...
