| Further to my purchase of Dennis a 1966 2T Longnose (MYM 999 D) pictured below,I have started the intrusive investigations.|
My first question is to Alec - would it be possible for me to include it as a Project on these pages please . I'm sure it was only because he was premature, an accident of birth, and would otherwise have become a V4

| My favourite looking 96 and the right colour - it gets my vote to see more!!|

| Always happy to see a resto thread.|
Once I get around to doing Betsy properly, she will be Red.

| Thank you Alec for allowing me to post the project on the V4 Forum.|
Well I've started and the following photos show what I will be facing.
I think i will have to improve my welding and fabrication skills dramatically.
O/S F inner wing above spring support.
The same now cut out. Actual spring support doesn't look too bad still galvanised in places.No wax-oil or anything in there.
Then there is the floor/footwells but I don't seem to have any photos. I'll take some for next post. but just to give you a feel for it here are some random ones of bulkhead and inner wings, sills, valances and all the usuals.
From inside boot on o/s.
In the distant past, as was the custom, someone was a dab hand with filler and zinc gauze.The Henry Moore of plastic padding, but didn't leave any holes.
When it was first done I bet it looked brilliant.
More photos to follow.
Message for Dirtbiker : Tried to pm you but no luck. Let me know you email. These are the carpets I mentioned but one is brown and one gold?

| Hi Roger,|
Replied to your pm, sorry, away last week.
Two Stroke looks great - to me it is asking for a leather bonnet strap!
