Default deggsy's A352

Hi all
I'm new to this forum thing so please excuse any mistakes in advance
I am building a herald based A352 which I ordered a few weeks ago I don't have any body panels so Chris is making me a frame to bolt it all to as well.
She is a 66 herald with a 1500 engine and overdrive box and 15" wire wheels
I am not building it as a replica just a triumph based special I'll post some photos when I figure out how?
I will post updates occasionally not as prolific as Scotties very useful guide just an update now and then.
I'll be at Stoneleigh this week end so I'll try to pop over to say hello.
See you there maybe

Hi there - hope to see you at Stoneleigh

Picture need to be stored somewhere on the internet - Google Photos for example - and then you right click on the image an select "Copy Image Location" or words to that effect.

In the post you put [img] in the text, paste the image location you copied earlier and the type [/ img] but without the space and it should work.

And welcome.

Find a post with a picture in and press "quote". You'll then be able to see what the HTML (the [IMG][U RL] and [/U RL][/IMG] stuff) looks like.

See you at Stoneleigh then.

That silver bracket in the floor pan might need securing a bit better before you fit the bodywork...

;-)

Hmm they have been cut off now and will be re welded to the cross bar them they will bolt to the centre consul frame and two more from the top of the hoops to the rear, well that's the plan it all depends on the frame that Chris is making for me?

Hi Derek. Welcome to the Forum. I have a couple of options for borrowing a Herald chassis locally to build the frame on. I will need a few measurement from you too. Will contact you once Stoneleigh is out of the way, or may see you there.

Hi Deggsy!
Welcome, and your car looks great already!
Puts my scruffy chassis to shame!

Keep up the posting.

deggsy - Welcome to the forum.

It looks like you have already done a great job on the rolling chassis.

I look forward to seeing another A352 coming together.

Good luck, Paul.

Thanks gents
I went for an MOT in my other kit car today a GTS panther 7 clone it failed miserably ok no problem except for two of the failures first headlights the same ones it's passed with on the last three occasions they are working fine but now are illegal? even worst the drivers seat failed because it's not adjustable It has pad seats bolted to the floor and back and that's how it went through it's SVA apparently the rules have changed the drivers seat has to be adjustable and working correctly (this may affect you Scottie ) I need to contact VOSA to check.

Read the Testers manual. If the car is special purpose then they DON'T need to be adjustable. Mine will be bolted to the floor.

https://www.gov.uk/government/public...and-7-vehicles

The relevant passage: Section 6-2

"Original Design characteristics and specialised modifications (e.g. to enable wheelchair access) are to be accepted."

Cite original design characteristics. If it passed the IVA that way then that's original design.

Don't be too upset deggsy, the weather forecast is really not too good, and without a roof, I would not have taken my car there even if it was finished!
