Wow Mart, just been looking at your pix and I reckon mines better than that, at least from the waist up! Steve
Could be Steve, from the window line upwards at least. Good luck with yours though, looks like a lot of welding ahead. I will follow your resto closely.

Right, I think I'm about finished, subject to Jon having a quick look over it before it goes off to the body shop.

Removed the servo, door handles & locks. Made some holes a bit larger. :lol:

I took the DA to the whole car today. Got all the glue off the roof...

Found another hole in the front passenger door...

Not sure if I'm going to do any more to it tomorrow, I'll see what I feel like.

Jon the sprayer will hopefully be picking it up early next week. :D

Jon the sprayer's transporter has been waiting for an MoT so he had to borrow something else to pick the track Sprint up just now...

Strewth, I thought the topic was still centred around Mary for a moment there!

Can I sell this early shell to someone else now then?

After stripping the engine down on Saturday I made a start on rebuilding the head this evening.

Lapped all the valves in...

Image

Image


Valves all cleaned up...

Image


New valve springs! :-k As you can see the new springs (right) are a couple of mil longer than the old ones, no surprise there. Then as I went to fit the first one & orient it the right way up I noticed there wasn't a right way up. ie. it doesn't have the closer coils at one end. These springs were given me a few years ago and on the box they are labelled for a Sprint & Stag. Question is, should they be ok to use?
