Hello,

After a total engine overhaul with lots off trouble the car is running great!
Still we have to practice some patience since it,s running the first 500 miles but it pulls good.

Today i received my proper registration with SAMMIO SPIDER printed on it!

During the build i tried to get info but the dutch DVLA didn,t answer on questions.

I feared lots of trouble getting the registration in Holland,during the build
I was warned for loosing my original registration and other horror.


Last week I went to the dutch DVLA to get the right registration.
After a very minimal check (mostly papers and numbers) I got what I
wanted:a new registration form with SAMMIO SPYDER on it!

I,m so glad that part is finished,now we can drive it with confidence.

Gr.Rob

Great news on the registration, nice to know that the Dutch authorities are pretty laid back about such things.

Jerome Congratulations Rob.

It is a great feeling when all the car's paperwork is finally in order.

+1 to the call to see some photos.

Cheers, Paul.

Garage? Sorry, I just assumed it was the hangar deck of the USS Nimitz.

Today we've builded the car back to our standards (other indicator lights, hubcaps etc) and painted the wheels. With the white paint the rims look a lot bigger. Now we're looking for some other tyres to make the wheels look even bigger.

We're happy the way it looks now and now finally time for some kilometers!

Looking good, white rims with vent holes really set the car off, very 50's Ford Pop.

I like the wheel treatment too ..my thoughts were less Ford but more Mercedes or Porsche style Rudge knockoffs...

Finally we passed the 1000km run in period. While driving the 1000km we weren't happy with our windscreen (original window and the Brooklands windows). We've bought a MG Midget window and tried to fit it, but we didn't like the shape of it and the big frame. So we decided to make an higher original windscreen out of lexan which is 10cm higher then the original. Its far more comfortable to drive and it looks still period. This gonna be a good summer

(we don't have any windscreenwipers, but we think it will be allright )
