  1. Nothing done on the car this week as I've been putting all my spare time into my new garage build. Been prepping the ground ready for the concrete which is going in tomorrow morning. This is going to be the new house for a few of my cars. It took 14 ton of stone and 5 ton of sand to get it to this point lol. Can't wait to get it up now ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  2. Thanks again, the pdf doesn't want to work. If you could get me some measurements to the band's that would be a great help ๐Ÿ‘
  3. Pushed the shell into our body shop last ting today. Now my body man can get on it inbetween other jobs, this bit takes an absolute age. But the finish is in the prep. I'll update with some pictures in next few days
  4. That's some great info there. Thanks a lot for that very helpful. Measurements would be great. If you decide to sell them I'm your man ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘
  5. Anyone running cibbie super oscars 2 up 2 down ? I'm after some advice on best way to make / mount the brackets to crossmember / chassis any help and pictures would be appreciated. Thanks
  6. Jeez, sorry to hear that. I believe lee bought this from an omoc member. It has had a v8 in at some point ๐Ÿ˜ฎ can you remember the reg ? Hopefully it's not this one ๐Ÿคจ
  7. You lost a shell ? ๐Ÿ˜‚ it is a good one, and a desent starting point. It's good as it's not had any previous welding so makes life easier lol
  8. Chassis parts was klockerholm, sourced from a facebook member, all bottom end engine parts was supplied by quasar in Stockport who built the short motor, gasket set was sourced via Ebay, most other parts was sourced via club members and some bits I had to make, like the battery tray repair section, inner chassis rail and upper chassis sections. New chain came with the car and I found the guides in our stock.
  9. It's far from mint, does need some welding. Sills, drivers floor, swan necks, A posts, inner wings and couple of other bits. It was going to be made into a 400 hence it's stripped. But I talked the previous keeper out of it as it's a rare starmist black exclusive. It had a v8 in it at some point.
  10. Thanks mate, I had them do it as the bore on number 2 was water damaged so had to have a liner. It's had pretty much everything new or recon now lol So that's it for tonight. Got the the block pretty much built up. Just waiting on the rebuild cylinder head coming back now with the new valves in that I sourced. Happy days ๐Ÿ˜€
  11. Bottom end was built by quasar in Stockport. Crank been 're ground, polished and balanced by them. I'm just building the rest
  12. Starting to lay stuff out ready for rebuild. Only just noticed this oil pump setup, longer gears with spacer to suit. Anyone else come across one of these ? I've never seen one like this. I'm also fitting new chain and guides
  13. Back at the workshop parts have now dried and have turned out really well, just going to fit new front oil seal in timing cover. Then I'll start to put it all back together with new gaskets etc... ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  14. Thanks Wayne. But after the previous bolts snapping I don't want to take any chances. Want it like for like. So I knows it's correct ๐Ÿ‘
