Re: SouthernGT No6

Slow progress with a few things at the moment. My car came to me third hand with only a few panels having been riveted on by the first owner, itís only take me 10 years to get the rest done. Inevitably some panels had gone missing, namely the triangular ones at the rear to make the chassis more monocoque like in its appearance. Mick at Southern GT supplied the required missing parts at a very reason able free of charge rate. So it was out with my DIY powder coater, few blemishes in the finish but that just adds to the patina

Also fitted the fire extinguisher, after a very interesting conversation with Frank Catt about fire extinguishers and cars, it is a bit of a white elephant but its looks please a little mind like mine. Feeding the wire through the door, through the access panel to seal off the fuel lines required for IVA and past the wiring loom proved problematical , but with the help of a wire coat hanger it was achieved.

Also, having some starting issues so decided on advice to fit a larger battery, still have some starting issues ho hum

They are predicting some very cold weather over the next few days so that combined with me being in charge of childcare on Friday (I have my excuse lined up) may stop play this week.
