i wasn't "dis'ing" my brethern but stating that my preference is to the longer bonnet.

I know you say that size isn;t important but in this case the longer lines of the bonnet adds to the sleeker - faster looking car.

Andy has very definite ideas about how he wants the car to look ....Although he lives in Wales , he is originally from Norwich way , as is Phil9 , Andy asked for a scoop like Phils , Mike has done this.....




These scoops must be now known as NORFOLK SCOOPS....


We also managed to get the interior fitted ....dropped floors ( slightly modified as I made the frame before we had dropped pans ) , wooden sides and rear bulkhead and our new steel tunnels ( 60 each and supplied over length to be cut down )






Rear light holes and pods have been grafted on also....



The above picture shows the shorter tail quite well.....Obviously still a Sammio yet a bit different....

Welcome to the fold Andy. I'm sure there's room on here for the odd pro' amongst us amateurs. Looks like selling Sammio's could be a nice little addition to your business empire. Good luck!

Welcome Andy. Looking forward to seeing the 'Special' in paint.
I've taken the liberty of putting you 'on the map'. You are the Cars & Classics based in Taffs Well aren't you?
Matter of interest, what stage are you supplying donors at? As bought or Stripped or Stripped and restored?

Andy .....you got here in the end then ?

Welcome aboard ....

In answer to your question , Andyp , I think any level required really ....Andy is keen to act as an agent in Wales and I am sure between the two of us we can accomadate most requests !

I am taking delivery of a rolling chassis next week from Andy , no engine but overhauled suspension etc....its the beginnings of my car / new demonstrator etc...so I will start a new thread when it arrives , don't want to hijack this thread too much !

Hi Andy and welcome to the forum, it's good to hear that you eventually decided to do a Spyder for yourself rather than just providing a few of us with donors

I bought the Herald 13/60 that had been converted to a Vitesse off of you last year and i'm happy to say that i've recently finished converting it to a Sammio Spyder and i've had a great time doing it

When i came over and saw the donor (about this time last year?) i do remember promising you that i'd come over when i finally finished and as soon as the weather cheers up and when i've gained a bit more confidence in it i'll pop over for a blat

I look forward to seeing how yours turns out, especially seeing as you're a top bodyshop bod!

Dave

Default Norfolk Scoop

Gary

Re your early post in this thread

1. How do we form the Norfolk Scoop into the bonnet to you "plant on" or "cut in" ?

2. Could we use you metal tunnel section to form the recess under our door cills to run the side exhausts within or do you have a standard tunnel section in fibreglass, current thinking is to mould the section around a length of 150mm dia drain pipe.

I would think not as this is the person that was allegedly 'taken for a ride' I think.
