Well the rollbar's done. Liked the way it turned out so thought it worthy of a wider audience...

Time to bring this back from the dead. There aren't many TR conversions ongoing now Calvin's finished, so I figured a dose of car porn wouldn't go amiss...

A couple of pictures of the frame. The exhaust's been built and all the small stuff to finish has been completed.
I was so impressed by it I spent most of my train journey in this morning looking at it.

Body is in primer, but I'm leaving aside pics of that until it's ready.

Great update. Had wondered if you were still working on it. Hope you're going to make it to the meet in the spring!

There doesn't appear to have been much progress over the last couple of months, so there's nothing to say and nothing to show either.

I've been busy, what with work and the new rugrat so haven't been online that much. Busy to the point that the white 8 went out only twice last year. Once for inspection and once to go to a local show that my wife browbeat me into attending (it was a charity deal that I had no interest in - almost all import muscle).

If this one's not ready, the white one will get a run down to GA for the Mitty end of April, but I'm still ~hoping~ that things progress and I can go down and pick up and drag the blue one there instead.

Anyone here planning on attending out of interest?

Wow this car looks awesome, lite, strong, and a bunch of power. Somebody's going to be smiling when it hits the road.

Hmm. This got dragged kicking and screaming from the archives...

A 5 word progress report would run "still waiting on the painter".
