HI All just a update on the car for you;
Parts are been slowly been located, due to the new Reg's, a new correct size rollover bar has been made, just needs fitting
a engine block has been aquired, along with gearbox cases ans housings, as the engine I have had will not work with the parts I have to go on the car and to keep it in the 1100cc class.
I still have a wishbone jig to make (which I have started) and up-date for the later back lower sus' arm's.
I am on the lookout for some of the MAMBER wheel rims, to build up a set of wheels for the car, as the original rears have long gone, if any one has any leads on rims, inner 4in-4.5in and 4in-6in outers with 16 bolt pattern for the MAMBER centers, I would be intrested.
will try to get some more Photos put up, but photobucket have lost my details and I cannot get to the ones you can see above, so a new account will have to be sorted.

HI all well I see Photobucket has shut down the photo's in the thread, I will have to see if I can remamber which was which and sort out putting things back.
as for the car. there is a little progress in collecting parts, I managed to find some wheel rims to make up some wheels and picked up tyres to go on them, a new roll loop has been bent to replace the original, still need to sort out a whishbone jig, then the suspension can go back on

well there is a result, the PHOTOS are back, wish I could get the car back together as fast, as I have collection of bits and now have to re-assemble the car to make some room,
Looking for 2 hen's teeth, a 970 crank and 970 cylinder block to make the car original-ish, or at leest engine CC size, if any one has, or know of anything lying under a bench, not being used, let me know

Well the photos have gone again, bother, will have to find some one more reliable to replace them
any way, I have just about collected all the parts to put the car back onto it's wheels and should be running this year, I have a day planed at the Mini day a Blyton on the 6th May , failing that the hillclimb at Bo'ness on the 31st Aug - 1st Sep subject to testing
will see if I can sort out the photo's when I get time and some new ones
