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

Pretty certain she will notice my new garden ornament soon.

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.

Drummajor 4th June 2019 20:13

I have most of the interior left , trimmed in red .
I’ve sold the red leather seats but still have door cards , centre console with red gaitors

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

Today was cambelt and water pump change , should it really have took 6 hours ?

Image size
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.:smile:

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 .

Drummajor 23rd June 2019 13:11

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.

Drummajor 4th July 2019 18:21

I now have door cards , only took 6 hours !!

Drummajor 5th July 2019 08:58

Delivery due from the states today , excited ��

Drummajor 7th July 2019 08:47

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.

Drummajor 15th July 2019 10:57

Off to the tuners today , I really hope it will be good news (and not too expensive )
Fingers crossed

Drummajor 27th July 2019 10:16

198.6 bhp ��
Track day went very well, the car didn’t miss a beat , just a few tweaks of the suspension were needed.
Now to continue with the interior refit .
However got a question or two , please read my new “electrical issue” thread
Cheers guys
