This is a slight update after about 7 years! I bought my project in 2009 as a real basket case. I started with plenty of enthusiasm, and not much knowledge or skill. I refurbished the (Spyder chassis) and sent the body away to Option1 for refurb.

I got as far as mating the body to the chassis after getting the engine/gearbox and diff refurbed. Then life and work got in the way!
Anyway about a year ago I got a local garage up here to help me make more progress. They took it to engine running and most electrics sorted. I now have it back in my hands!

Currently I am trying to sort the dash wiring and instruments. I then have interior, boot, door locks and mechanisms to sort. Also the hood which I don't have. My car was originally a FHC but previous owner wrote off the original car before buying a DHC body which I now have.
I can see a glimmer of light towards the end of the tunnel......maybe!
