In a effort to continue the theme I would suggest we post "Pictures Only' In this thread. Artsey, beautiful, unusal, race, rally, rusted, wecked, even ugly pictures of your car's past an present. Again, No words Only pictures please.
In order to post add a single number or letter to the message section. I just realise you cannot post a picture without at least one character in the message sction. :!:


Thanks

That explains the vibration. Bent hub flange, with a 3 legged puller marks on the rim. Also damaged KO thread from the wheel. Sometime in it's 50 year history somebody has used the wrong tools for the job!

that took probably 10 tons and a very sturdy extractor/puller plus an elongated spanner(tube)! sandy PS: some heat would've been wiser!

There must have been a previous thread under this name many years ago as I posted some photos of the restoration in progress and was having a look for them.

In any case here are a few new ones from January this year when the body/chassis and engine met again after 25 years. An auspicious occasion, my wife and son could not believe it!. I was distracted for a bit of time.

Will hopefully be back on the road by the end of the year. You may note that a boat builder did the final fitting up and painting.

I am surprised how much one step forward and two steps back this has been, nothing has been easy or straightforward. I should expect it considering the mess it was when purchased.
