Yes, two donors . The parts on the blue one are going on the silver one.
The blue one is rotten underneath but the mk2 is mostly sound

Good luck Drum. I remember you helping me out a lot during my first build. What state is the interior in in the Mk1? If you are looking for a new home for Mk1 interior bits I am in the market due to starting No 2 very soon.

Scrap donor has now been collected , even gave me £100 for it.
Build on the mk2 is at full speed. Mostly lots of engine work planned, major service and a bigger aluminium radiator to be fitted. New seats have arrived and lots of interior where fitted in the last few days .
It’s all go, go ,go

Can you resize your pics to 800x600? I have the same issue when I post pics from my phone, the Madabout pages scale to the size of the pic, not vice versa. I use "Paint", but no doubt there are other ways. Keep posting progress.

Take two, today was refit of cam belt as it didn’t fire today .
Tomorrow will be doing it again as still no start up, but having searched the internet I think it may be possible that I’ve installed the sensor wheel , behind the pulleys , the wrong way round. I only say that as I didn’t know there was a right and wrong way to install it.
I hope it sorts 5he problem .

It works , it works . Damn sensor wheel was the wrong way round , it took 10mins to rectify . Simple really, if only I had known this 2 days ago.

First drive after the six week mechanical rebuild and refresh has gone well.
Everything worked, was a bit loud but nothing that can’t be fixed.

Chris and Dan now have the body at their place. Making a few modifications to the rear shell then I can start the conversion , firstly though I’ve got the track day booked at castle Coombes to give the car a good shake down.
