Bought this when I was 18yo, and it's been off the road for..... ever? Late 90s I think... Usual story, chassis rot. Lots of work involved, so thought I'd better subscribe and hopefully get a bit of knowledge from the folks that know these things inside out!
First step is to get it stripped - hopefully engine coming out next week - and then get the chassis rails to a state where it's safe to go up on Ade's rotisserie thing! I did toy with the idea of strapping it to the bulkhead so I could perhaps rotate it just a little to make life easier with getting to the swan necks, dunno if anyone's tried that before? Obviously it won't go far round, but even a few degrees would help with access.
Also, the wing tops are pretty much gone (but inner wings pretty good). Current ideas being tossed around are going the spaceframe/flip-front route, or somehow getting some new wing tops in the right place. All ideas buzzing around anyway, am sure you'll see more of this lunacy as the weeks go by !
