Hi, the facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/groups/Burlingtoncars/

It seems that getting an actual owners' club going keeps failing, so this is what we have currently.

Robin,
considering that Haydn Davies still sells the plans on a DVD, it is surprising that there aren't more Burlingtons about being built.
One problem might be that I don't think anyone makes the...

Mick, that's all well and good where a saloon body exists as the donor, but we have an immaculate GT6 Mk 1 frame. No body work apart from a very ratty bulkhead.
So we're back to no frame. I can...

I used to run the company back in 1984! I sold the original brown SS prototype and got the 2 Litre blue one sorted out. 2+2 car too.

Dummy rivets are dummies, holes or not, it's your car. I just wondered why you went to all that trouble for what is effectively a wrong appearance. No skin off my nose.

Why drill holes in the rivets? On an "original car" of this alleged era, the rivets would have been solid, like aircraft rivets, as on D-Type, XJ13, etc.

Artisan, I'll let the people on the Burlington Facebook page know about these for you. Hopefully we can find you a new owner soon. There aren't enough SS cars about.

I think I'd rather have some sort of support frame if only for a little side protection/anti rattle.

Even the plywood Arrow has substantial body frames.

So, bodies only, maybe, but does that mean no frames? In which case it would be a bit of a job mounting the body.
I ask only out of curiosity as I am busy building my Burlington Arrow.
But thanks...

I'm wondering if I should go for a lower spring rate as I'm only putting the Spitfire engine in, which is obviously lighter.

Springs

Where do you guys get your different rate springs from?
None on ebay. I'm assuming I have standard Spitfire springs on my Arrow as that's what came with all the bits I have.
