Default Sammio workshop projects

As the forum is a little quite I though I'd list a few workshop projects I'v been working on.

The last build was a all aluminium transported body fitted to a twin turbo, 165HP, VW truck.

I built it for a local guy with the promise I could use it when I wanted.

Been sorting this beastie out as well.

It's a 1942 "K" series Austin cab with custom rear tub (tipper) sat on a Land Rover Discovery chassis utilizing the 2.5 turbo diesel engine and 4 wheel drive system.
It's nearly ready for the MOT just a few "issues" to sort out.

Finally a project I been working on for some time.

It's much like GJ's "long nose" project.
The idea was first conceived a few years back by Chris at Tribute Automotive. It's a Tribute Automotive A352 "D" type body, stretched to fit Scimitar SE5 chassis.
Over time it's evolved into rebuilt and referbished SE5A chassis fitted with a Jaguar XK40 3.2lt engine, 5 speed Getag 265 gearbox, Spax adjustable coil-over shocks all around, 4 pot vented disc's brakes up front with full disc brake conversion on the rear.

This really has been a labour-of-love with many problems but when finished it really should drive, handle and stop as well as it will looks and of course it will be finished in BRG.

Speaking of BRG in true "Blue Peter" fashion here one I finished earlier .
