    Original front and rear body hinge / pivot photo request

    So I've been through the 173 pdf's on Grabcad and unless I'm blind I couldn't find a drawing for the clam to chassis bracket. I've seen the Taylors drawing before BUT in my simple mind that wouldn't hold the clam securely to the chassis, as mentioned the SGT has a bolt that locks the bracket to...

    Original front and rear body hinge / pivot photo request

    Hi all, does anyone have any CAD drawings for ANY rear hinge arrangements similar to the original - Southern / AK for example? I know on the Southern / AK chassis there is a bolt on the very bottom opening edge of the bracket to physically hold it to the chassis, it's details like this...

    Window/headlight cover material

    I've got some 2mm perspex to make my light covers if I go down that route, the only thing putting me off slightly is the time consuming process of having to make the aluminium, bucks to heat form the covers over

    Tornado TS40 'evolution'

    So as of week commencing the 13th December 2021 the below photo brings you all up to speed of where the car sits.... partially clothed in the bodyshop. The stages of body prep the shop is doing from where I left off is: Initial block sand to take out any deep scratches I may have left fine...

    Tornado TS40 'evolution'

    So that left me with this empty & very dusty space After the mother of all brush downs and hoover ups and seeing as I find it impossible to 'relax' I saw this as the ideal time to give me most favorite place a bit of a make over. You can see in the photo above the stock pile of grey boxes, in...

    Tornado TS40 'evolution'

    Getting closer to the date the car was going to the shop I knuckled down and got the final jobs on the decreasing 'to do' list done... mainly righting more wrongs but such is life, I won't bore you with the details. Something I did do however was alter the passenger (left side) door as the gap...

    Tornado TS40 'evolution'

    Since the day I bought the car I knew what colour it would ultimately end up. I had always played with the idea of spraying the car myself, I have the equipment but not necessarily the patience or experience on this scale to get the body where is needed to be prep wise although I do have friends...

    Tornado TS40 'evolution'

    As I'm now going 'all in' with this rebuild I thought it would be rude not to buy a set of Hartwells catches for the car.... reproductions but still I'm not fussed in the slightest! Tornado make a lovely set, I only had to wait a couple of weeks while a batch was being assembled before they were...

    Tornado TS40 'evolution'

    Keeping at the back of the car I them moved onto something I'd been giving a lot of thought to since starting the full rebuild. I've going for an early 'esque' looking car so that got me thinking about the rear lights and how much more in keeping the small twin Lucas lights would be. There isn't...

    Tornado TS40 'evolution'

    Now that the wheels had arrived and the tyres mounted it was time to plough into the rear arches.... now unfortunately the rear arches hadn't been fitted very well and not symmetrical from left to right and once I'd seen this I couldn't un-see it so that only meant one thing..... Taking my...

    Tornado TS40 'evolution'

    While all of the above was going on some time ago I'd placed an order with Image Wheels for a set of 15" BRM's and they were ready for collection. I'd already bought a set of Avon CZR's in 295/50/15 and 216/60/15 to give the classis meaty sidewall look. I went with satin black outers, faces and...
