The Ol Girl's progress
« on: August 16, 2019, 17:26:43 »
Just an update on the ol' girls progress.

Rear air shocks fitted in place of the old lever arm shocks.

Sort a pair of rear wheels from the good ol' US of A 6.5 inch 16's now fitted wth 205/80 radials, original front 16 inch rims fitted with 175/80 radials.

Converted front brakes to later 2 cylinder  drums.

All wings now resprayed in Granite Grey by a firm in Rye Sussex. Bottom half of car spayed by me also in Granite Grey.

Top half, boot, bonnet, nose etc all being sprayed in original light green specially mixed for me in cellulose.

Triumph TR6 radiator and 16 inch electric fan fitted.

Just got fit wings and re fit all the bits and bobs.

All while now taking out 140 foot of hedge and putting in a fence, getting a new puppy and keeping out of the wife's way in case she finds me something else to do.

Will have her at the Sprint.


Oh forgot

fitted new kingpins to front axle.

Cut boot floor out over spare wheel well so now bigger boot, new tyres wont fit in it anyway.

Moved Battery to spare wheel well, always seemed daft that the battery sat on the top of the bulkhead.

Now where is my shovel another fence post to fit.

Nothing is impossible, but sometimes it takes a different approach. Now anyone got a big hammer?
