Default Nice to be in the Build Cue.

Nice to read your build diary 1iTim.
I'm just behind you with my build. All my suspension parts have been cleaned and painted, the chassis been cleaned and painted. One coat to the top and three coats to the underside. I've had assistance to turn the chassis right side up now, but its been so cold and I really want to give the top side another paint layer before I start my build.
I have also been distracted with renovating a set of 15" wire wheel I purchased early December, which I want to try and renovate myself. If I fail then I can get them done professionally as there is a company a couple a miles away.

Thanks carib. I got the chassis blasted and powdercoated, worked out not much more than the self paint option, and then it looked so good it has lifted my quality ever since.
Just waiting on the body now. If you are talking to mike say hi from me.

Cool solution for the grease caps and you can't beet a bit of serious polishing, the carb dash pots will look great, are you going to polish the carb bodies?

No, just the tops. The bodies and floatchambers would need a lot of work to prepare for polishing, lots of cast flashings and stuff to file off. So no. Would look awesome, anyone done it?

Was going to put the carbs on today but first need to plumb some kind of crank ventilation to replace the open vent. Then i can get them on and linked.

I goggled triumph miglia to see what it looks like.
Nice car Tim.

What is the story with the RTA, will they look at it as a Herald or a new build?.

Hi Jim, I'm in NSW and the rms certifying engineer says that it may be able to be registered as a triumph of original year, maybe as triumph herald special or triumph milia special. At worst may need icv which means some engine compliance work...

This all looks cheap and quick but with overseas delivery of such a bulk item this may hit the wrong side of 20k (Aud)

Happy to chat,
Tim

Nothing is cheap.

I have done an ICV, I would be thinking a rebodied Herald would be the way to go.

Interesting to see how they perceive it.

I built a GT40.
I purchased a chassis and made everything else.
It took 10years total, it has been registered for 4years, the build continued after the rego was completed, only because you never finish.

RTA has a habit of playing games because I truly believe that they dont know how to work outside the square.

If you go through as a new build it will need to pass an IM240 emissions test,you will struggle with the Herald eng due to the technology required to pass it.
Thats why if it where a rebodied Herald then all the mechanicals have to comply with the age of the car manufacture 1959, This would be a walk in the park.
If the Herald was already registed at some point and has a VIN I think it makes it easier again, Your engineer would advise your options.
All I know is you will not pass the IM240 with that engine and thats why you need to register as 59 herald.

If the Herald has intrusion bars you would need to fit bars into your glass body ,and supply paper work to prove their strength I would think.
If it never had bars put them in and belt mounts because the RTA love it when you make an effort.
You may fall into the trap (ask your engineer) the RTA may ask you to comply to current rules on the body work, not sure how it works for a rebody.

Ask your engineer if an ICV has to comply to 1959 or 2015 or both 59 on the car 15 on the bodywork.

I will keep watching.

Jim

Wow, and we think we've got problems with DVLA. And I love the use of the word 'rego'.

Great to see that there are proper car enthusiasts on the other side of the planet, keep up the good work guys!

Thanks mr T. Jim if it's icv its 2015 all the way but he was confident with closed breathing (I've alre done that) a cat and something else I can't remember he'd pass it. The intrusion and general "crash worthiness " are the unquantifiable bits. It never had a vin but was registered in vic with its original "commission plate" which is Y9048, not the 17digit monster of today.

Lots of unknowns but the engineer may help the rego process.

We'll see!
T
