It won't be painted by then but I'm hoping to at least have the body together and fixed in place. I'll just need the lights in and a seat and technically its drivable ! Pictures to follow...........

Here are a few pics from the weekend. The rear end sits on the Locost upper chassis at exactly the right height . The side shots show the fitment of the deep dish wires with the correct size tyres all bolted up. My measurements of the Locost wheel base and track were pretty close to the TR so I'm really happy with the combination with the wheels bolted in place. The Ford 1700 cross flow is good but I plan to fit a V6 at some point as it will make the right noises !

Shots of the engine and the surplus fuel tank. A real shame I can't use the tank, its massive at around 37 gallons and built to Ferrari specifications, all hand crafted in aluminium. Its listed on ebay if anyone wants it but I've put a silly ( imo ) asking price just in case a genuine TR owner might want it as a spare !

Lucky - It sounds like your build is coming together really quickly.

And it is definitely going to look spectacular.



Good luck, Paul.

Thanks for posting the photo up Paul !

As builds go this is easy, you can put that down to the donor car being the right size and shape. The body has simply dropped on top and fitted in all the right places. The only compromise is going to be the short driving position, the Locost has a laid back driving position, the TR is very upright. But having studied the real thing that is what they were like back in the day.
