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


Cheers

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?

Cheers

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