Hammys 60's Racer
 
Hi gents, Ive picked up my donor and very nice it is too! Ive started a blog if you Google 'Hammys 60's Racer' you'll find it. I'll update a as I go along but I find the blog much easier for a long thread. If you are interested in my last creation you can Google 'Hammys Zero'

So far got new suspension and a K&N induction kit to fit, also doing the 14 degree timing mod this weekend. Kit to be ordered in a fortnight!

Tuning
 
So this weekend new suspension fitted (45mm lower) MX5 Parts decat and dual exit stainless exhaust fitted. I was nervous about messing the bumper up cutting a 2nd exit but it was very easy. Also done the 14 degree advance, new cambelt and K&N induction kit. Its a completely different car now and sounds brilliant! Will update blog soon. CAll to Tribute later to place my order

Thank you for your order, see you in April.:icon_smile:

I am Chris, but need to keep driving it first, always been my intention drive it for a few months first, hence the April delivery date. Working on the interior next weekend adding some chrome etc BTW did you get my msg about the address for delivery of the roll bar mate?

Hammy 29th January 2013 18:50

Loads a shopping done today on chrome interior bits' bullet mirrors but the bargain I wanted to let you all know about is the Aston style fuel cap from Europa spares, just over 50 quid, I'll let you know what its like when it arrives. Also noted that chrome interior trim from mx5 parts is dramatically cheaper in their ebay shop than their own website

Hammy 31st January 2013 21:40

The 50 quid fuel cap is rubbish badly chromed... On the phone to Europa tomorrow......

grayone 1st February 2013 10:06

Hi Hammy you can get a mini one for 15 ebay

Alex, who we are building the TVR based car for, brought one of the caps down to the workshop this week, it really is a lovely product. Not a bad price when compared to some of the UK suppliers Cobra units.

interior
 
Cheers guys I'll see what the Aston one is like first. Not much done this weekend just interior trim.

Loving the chrome, are you going for wood effect as well?

Hammy 4th February 2013 08:59

I'm debating that at the moment

Tribute Automotive 9th February 2013 20:35

Just to say a big thanks to Hammy's rollcage for finally killing off my long suffering pillar drill, it's replacement is brilliant, twice as big, twice a powerful and twice as quick. I love new powertools!! :whoo:
