Right, there have been some developments and I've got pictures and such to show so we'll have a little bit of an update.
Having bought a shell a few months ago when I came back from the Czech Republic with the intention of reshelling my car only to discover it would be illegal and that the shell wasn't in as good a condition as the seller made it out to be I set about stripping the good bits off it for storage. I stripped off the front and rear subframes, hi-lo's, suspension doughnuts, radius arms, superfin drums and a steering rack. I gave them a going over with the pressure washer and put them in to storage. I'm going to chop the remainder of that shell up for some patch panels for my current shell.
I bought some 1.5 degree negative camber front arms off a fellow TMF member (thanks Flippy) and set about wire brushing them down and giving them a coat of hammerite. I'm toying with the idea of selling them on for what I bought them for and buying some adjustable ones instead.
This last weekend I went down the M6 to meet David Kimberley (TDK Racing) as I'd ordered some fiberglass bits from him.
One MK1 bootlid skin which I'm going to bond on to my existing bootlid frame once I've removed the old metal skin.
A two piece fiberglass front end, the bonnet is just resting in place now and I have to say wow, the quality of this front is fantastic and I can not wait to get it on the car. I have to give great thanks to David for coming half way up the M6 to meet me because the postage costs of the front were outright silly. I reccomend people to deal with Mr. Kimberley, he's a top guy and incredibly helpful, thanks again David (http://tdkracing.co.uk
That's all for now, I do have a big box of things from Mini Spares but I've not been through and taken pictures yet, but I will get around to it. I have also sorted a garage to carry out work in so we should see some actual progress before long.
Thanks for looking.
