Very cool ride, slots always look the biz, but even more so when filling out rear wings like that.
Not long now till she's all finished and you're racking up the miles and smiles :D

Herbert and Ellison have done a great job on the interior, just a tune up and snagging to go!

Really Nice. Interiors and Paint finish really make a Car and give an accurate indication as to the quality of the build.

While completely different in the their own guise, I wouldn't mind getting our Pick Ups together sometime.

In the meantime I guess you're chomping to get it out on the road and just try not to smile, you can't. :D

Well Done. Enjoy...

Well now...six years in the making and she'll be on the road and coming home tomorrow :shock: Can't wait! Special thanks to Jimmy Hibberd and his team at Valley Gas Speed Shop for all their hard work and advice...and perseverance! Also thanks to Jonathan Heap of JLH for helping me out of a hole with the Fiat Twin Cam Engine and Crowden Coachworks in Wooburn Green for the fantastic paint job! Hope to be at Brooklands on 12th March for first formal outing...fingers crossed!

Well Done Richard for getting it completed.

As so many of us 'modifiers' know, Good Things Come to Those That Wait.
I'm sure there's been times when you think, is it worth it, and it certainly is when you can finally enjoy what you set out to achieve.

Next time you're coming up to Warwickshire, contact me as would like to see the finished article in the flesh and, as before would be great to get our Pick Ups at a show.

Go Forth and Enjoy. :D

Does anyone have a Fiat 2L twin cam 5 speed gearbox that works? Got a synchro problem with mine and a quick replacement would be gratefully recieved.

What a bugger about your gearbox.
Have you managed to get a replacement or are you faced with removing yours and having it reconditioned?
