City: Cambridge, UK

The car was originally converted approx 10 years ago but due to daily use it needed doing again so this is the progress so far:

Now that all the metalwork has been repaired, the sandblasting has been done and now the filling has started:

And this is the bonnet scoop I have had added to try and get some of the heat out of the engine while running:

I'll post further pics as the project moves on!

Another week on and now there is primer and guide coat after all the filling and sanding has been finished, the engine bay seam sealing has been completed also:

I've now started on rebuilding the engine, hopefully injecting a little more power as I go....more updates to follow.
