Gary - Great job on the floors.

Your bead roller work means they are stiffer than my "factory" floors.

Good luck, Paul.

PS
How easy is the bead roller to use?

At first i was going to do the floor in one piece but it proved too large, so i ended up making the inserts. This makes it easier to use as regards size when using the beader, plus you need one hand to turn the handle and one feed through and looking at the bead following line... you get better as you know.

I must try and finish jobs in order, so i made a new pin for the leaf spring - now down to 4 leaves/1" block/middle hole on wishbone hangers. I was really pleased how my floorpans came out, just need to weld corners up and puddle weld in place. But i will finish suspension first.

Gary - Good luck in your quest for an engine, it will be interesting to see how the MX5 unit works out.

Cheers, Paul.

That's who I got my gearbox cover from. Quality was fine and the price was good too.

It's Trevor's in the main picture, but the other images are of a different car (the one for sale). No idea why.

Check Trevor's old blog and spot the different dash, indicators, rear light positioning etc..

Its not Trevor's old car (No 48) thats for sale they have just use a photo of his car as the primary picture.
The actual car for sale is in the later photos, although the same colour it's a totaly differant car
The current owner of Trevor's old car lives locally and was a bit up-set with what they have done

That said it is a very nice photo of a Sammio Spyder, would look nice on my web site
