What to do when you have a surplus of unfinished projects?
1 finish something
2 sell something
3 but another project

And the winner is no3
Another unfinished project joins the collection
:P :P
Will add pictures once it's collected, so am going to need the services of a transporter son time next week

Project now home, came with lots of powdercoated bits, including the pedal assembly, so had to sand a lot of it off to allow the parts to fit together, will grease and assemble it soon.
Will get some pictures up soon, but night shift and rain don't leave much chance for photography

Spent time having fun with fibreglass, patching the holes and splits in the body, have about half of them covered now, just the rest to seal then I can build them up to restore strength to the structure
Must take pictures

The beach buggy project is progressing.
Ignition timing sorted.
Latest step forward is the social distancing paint job, looks ok from 6 feet away, will be tackling some of the wiring next
Son has developed a real interest in the buggy, responsible for wire brushing and painting the floor pan

Had the buggy moving under its own power, just backwards and forwards on the drive but it does move!
Steering not connected, brakes decidedly sketchy, but it did drive.
Will have to add the video evidence to the Facebook page as forum doesn't like it

Has been a rather confusing last few days,
lost a neighbor to covid19.
Have been furloughed from work,
Bit of a depression session!!
Focused on the buggy to keep myself upbeat.
Day 1
Rebuild the brakes with Stuart, then drown my sorrows
Day2
Finish adjusting the brakes, fit the engine cage, fit a spare column and wheel, slave fuel tank and battery, throw on a seat and try moving it back and forward again, no I did not drive it up the road, :D :D :D so that's not the reason the pan has turned around :D
The high point of the day however was a visit from the son of my deceased neighbor, he told me that prior to being hospitalized, his father had enjoyed watching Stuart and myself working on the buggy, reminding him of his time in South Africa, where they were fairly common
