If you leave it to me you'll have no picture at all!

Massive thanks to Renagadenemo for showing us around the old girl today (and the leads to possible accomodation, my oppo is interested!)
As requested by the main man "Jacques, no photographs on face ache!" "I shall resist!" :D :D

Additional in cockpit video from the 15th of March of XX741. I did get my chance to run it in July to tests the fixies for the issues Dheeja (D Reg) had picked up on the taxi runs. Alas Museum management would have a paddy if I published the vids as some of us where not wearing high viz vests.. Bloody museums.

Hi all.. you probably won’t remember my good lady, it’s been 10 years since she bribed you to let me see the tin thing on my birthday with a rivet contribution and biscuits, but she’s running her own counselling business, and posted a COVID update for lockdown counselling today. Made me smile, and I thought it might make a few of you smile..

Happy New Year to all...
Good luck to the BBP team, makes me proud to be British (and a North-easterner to boot!). Damn fine work, chaps!

Been working from home now! Can't say that I don't like it but I find myself thinking again and again that working in a sunny place is better than where I am currently situated (Denmark) :D

My latest Healey project .
She’s a 62 Tri Carb with original factory hardtop . I’ve gone all aluminum except the boot n bonnet . The side rally vents are non original but the car will be finished to look like a 60s rally healey , hence the oil cooler intakes on the front .
It will have a scuttle scoop just ahead of the front windscreen as the Sebring cars did and lots of additional fog lights .
Metal work now declared done , time to dismantle and start epoxy primer etc .

Well that right there is some serious hours just in the metal work and it looks well for it too!

Have you added extra strength "under the skin"? (dash rail for example?)
