Re: 1967 S800 restoration project with a difference


apart from getting loads more bits and nuts and bolts plated not a lot has happened emoticon

but iv'e just sorted a nice little unit to rent so i can properly strip the car and spread it out without having to clear up and put it away at the end of the day. will be buying loads of equipment so i can at last get on with the bodywork and chassis properly

watch this space emoticon

and a little modification to the height adjuster

thats quite an unnecessarily heavy item. i have two cars worth of bits hence some bits duplicated. still a lot of work on the suspension modifications to do emoticon

Re: 1967 S800 restoration project with a difference


well the chassis isn't as light as it used to be

Image

iv'e added 3mm plate around the engine mounts and welded them permanantly. thicker tubes for the suspension mounts and 3mm plate for the gearbox mounts. still plenty to add though in the form of a few more plates and tubes.

iv'e done more in the last few weeks than i have in the last couple of years. it's been so long i can't remember where i got to on the updates so i'll just post loads of random pictures

more soon emoticon

Hi, if you're not using the original engine, would you sell it to me please?
