He doesn't need a carport they have beautiful weather over there all the time right SEF ?  ;)

The sun always shines on the righteous..........



Probably explains why its always raining here.  Wayne, ive had a few Gazebos, but the wind keeps destroying them.

Its getting closer......

LOL thanks Fly........... not so sure about the Master bit.... cheap....... definitely.
 
Ive made all the weatherstripping from a European car, and no they dont leak !!

Its just all the small things, nuts and bolts etc, we use a different thread here..... it just makes more work for me.
Im building it up though......... just dodging the rain and of course great music helps.

By the way...thanks! Now I'll have that silly Benny Hill theme song stuck in my head for the rest of the day....I just caught myself whistling it! (lol)

Thanks Rick, i appreciate that.......... as for the Benny Hill theme, im sorry about that, just try and think about the scantilly clad ladies chasing him about.

Jeff, i know its a mess, but you " gotta break a few eggs to make a nice cake, better than an omlette ".

You dont want to know !! LOL > lets just say that financially the car owes me less than $1250 usd and that includes all parts and materials so far.
I bought a donor car, parted it, used what i needed to get this one further along.

In an ideal world, a bored 455, or you may hate it, but a 572 BBC, i have a very unhealthy obsession with speed and power...... but the days of care free cash have passed and now as a family man, i can no longer be selfish.


Its a SBC, its been played with, plus its easy to get parts for here, it came from a 2nd gen Z28 which i know has seen some 1/4 mile action.  So there you are.....
