ohh, this should be an interesting build. I look forward to seeing this one progress and best of luck matey!

deggsy 2nd May 2015 17:35

Thanks I think I'll need it :icon_eek:

The boot floor in place 6mm ply skinned with glass fibre
Also the roll bar which will need to be modified when the frame arrives

deggsy 15th May 2015 15:06

Been playing with the rear tunnel cover today got it roughly in place it's made from 6mm ply and alloy sheet painted the ply with silver wheel paint not bad but not right so I skinned the top piece (under the roll bar supports) with alloy
Looks a bit better now! I just hope the frame (when it arrives?) clears the roll bar if not back to the drawing board

Finished the rear half of the tunnel cover but I'm not entirely happy. it looks a bit big and boxy to me any opinions? All replies will be given due consideration and may be totally ignored?????????

Love it deggsy, where did the handbrake come from?

deggsy 25th May 2015 16:22

Bought it in a auto jumble a few years ago can't remember what car it's off well worth the fiver I paid, knew it would come in handy one day

Looks like Mini or perhaps BMC 1100?

deggsy 4th June 2015 16:37

you're probably right Ed .
I have just spent two days cutting bending and riveting this cover plate and it's still not finished
And I still don't know if it's any good as I haven't decided weather to use the fibreglass cover or make an alloy one?
On the other hand I have made some progress on modifying the dash.

Scottie22 4th June 2015 17:31

Deggsy, I used a new fibre glass gearbox cover (modified) then covered that with ally, take a look back on my thread and you'll see it.

P.S. I like your dash!

deggsy 4th June 2015 18:37

thanks' Scottie it' a slightly modified mg midget dash do you have any idea what page your gearbox mod is on I'm up 15 and still searching :frusty:

Scottie22 4th June 2015 19:18

Try page 79 deggsy, and the ally paneling came a bit later.

deggsy 4th June 2015 19:32

Thanks found it looks like a good option it's either that, sprat it silver or make a new one? hmmmm

deggsy 4th June 2015 19:33

Oops sprat I mean spray

Not having a Herald chassis available to us, we have taken one of our Spitfire chassis's and stretched to Herald wheelbase and added outriggers at the correct outline size as a base to build Derek's frame onto.

Start of lower rail for frame with body mounts:

Lower front bulkhead:

deggsy 7th June 2015 21:06

yahoo it begins. Chris keep us informed of the progress

Tribute Automotive 11th June 2015 19:02

Derek, you may not need the rear most section of the frame I am building but it has been a good design exercise for me to see how itwill work with a Spitfire frame/chassis:

Side sections with door mounted, getting there:

Rear bulkhead area:

You should be able to collect next week.

deggsy 11th June 2015 19:29

It's looking good Chris keep me informed can't wait to get my hands on it I'll give you a ring on Monday

deggsy 14th June 2015 20:57

Not much happening at the moment I re seated the floor pans ( miglia steel ones)as they were overlapping front to rear nice and flush now I managed to damage the fuel line in the process repaired now just waiting for the frame and body which should be ready soon ???

deggsy 17th June 2015 07:48

Decided to take off the tunnel cover and hand brake assembly as looking at the photos it seems to go back further than the frame I will modified it after the frame arrives, I'm too eager and getting ahead of myself!!!
