    Britney arrives at Phaeton Towers

    Frustrating day, finished off the main wiring for the battery, didn't like how the fuel pipe was squeezed up against the chassis on a bend so took it off & got a bit of slack then wrapped both pipes in protection & put it back together. As I'd put the battery on thought I'd go through the...

    Britney arrives at Phaeton Towers

    Bit of an update about the progress, which seems to have been very slow, lots of hours put in when the weather is suitable, but again lots of going backwards before going forwards, removing & redirecting stuff the previous builder had done, the wiring looked great when I picked it up, all...

    OMG what a day, I don't remember the polybushes being as awkward last year, had a nightmare with 2 long ones for the bottom of the front lower arm, took ages, seem to remember last year just putting them in hot water for 5 minutes did the trick. Might be my imagination but these seem far harder...

    Fetched the suspension from the powder coaters yesterday & just had to fit a piece, the rebuild now begins Managed to get some spare hubs but getting the driveshafts out of those is also proving difficult.

    So the idea was to get the front subframe powder coated & then rebuilt before tackling the rear, however as usual you start to do something & then by the time you've realised it it's too late to stop & the whole of the rear was stripped. I couldn't get the driveshafts out of the hubs so went...

    First for sale in a long time

    I do hope they are not just buying it for the engine & scrapping the rest, hopefully if that is their idea they put the chassis back up for sale.

    First for sale in a long time

    I'd disagree with you, I think it's one of Dave's chassis's due to the radius of the roll cage, the earlier ones weren't as curved, if you compare Steve's buggy (Yellow) with Danny's (Orange) the top radius is more like the one for sale...
