Default Update 12th July 2018

Thanks for posting the pics Gary. The laminators' workshop was very profesional and enough space to store the body until I'm ready for it, which is great.

In the meantime the engine has been crated up and gone off to Sam at Ivor Searle for a full rebuild, since the previous rebuild wasn't up to the standards I want for this car.

The inlet manifold was a bit skanky, so that has now arrived back from Ian Gittings, who has done a fantastic job. I'll post some pics.

I finally sorted out the lack of Type 12 brake calipers as Fitchetts had a pair, which are ready to fit, together with the new wire wheel conversion kit.

On the aesthetics front, I'm probably going for a Jaguar Regency Red body with magnolia/ivory hide full width moulded seats. I built a Kougar a number of years ago in the same colours which looked great. I also saw a Ronart yesterday by chance, which had the same seat arrangement that I am going for, with the headrest incorporated into the seat cover.

Enough rambling for now...
