I'm sure it will be nice when it is finished.

So...

18 months passed without any further activity

I contacted Donald at DTH as i feared it would be another 18 months or more before i could find any sort of motivation.

He came, he saw, he gasped in astonishment....

After some smelling salts and a 10 minute sit down, he recovered enough to suggest that he might be able to help. :o :D

So we trailered it up to DTH in Tillicoultry and Donald and Michael took over.

Had to start in the middle to try and preserve some of the strength and structure.

Coming along nicely.

It continues....

Once they were happy with the chassis legs, the floor cross members and sills were next.

The plan was to start in the middle, work to the rear, complete the rear and then start the front.
