Only mentioned on an anecdotal note;
The vast majority of Peel kit cars being built are not bothering to source period correct powerplants, and similarly source up more modern, and  readily available hubs,  brakes, and steering gear.  So unless a builder has malevolent intent, and goes extraordinarily out of his way to source/ duplicate all the original parts- the excellent services of the Registry are not really required in this regard.
Curios to know how many fraudulently represented cars that Rumcar(ers) have spotted.  I can only recall a couple of Peels at this moment.
Thanks

I have  high quality Andy Carter fiberglass, dome and metal and interior packages.
I intend to create an admittedly contorted, but hopefully fully effective double wishbone suspension with a couple of inches of travel.
I am also expecting to experiment with a high powered water cooled engine of approx 150- 200 cc, and 20 -25 h.p.
Probably settle on 6 inch wheels as you have, but can't help but at least intend to try 2 rear wheels about a foot apart, as there is plenty of room back there, and I heard the rumor that Peel Engineering was considering this option way back when.
Tell us about your choosen power plant's characteristics and origins.
Having a reverse gear would be really appreciated.

Was that a Chinese quad?
How many cc, and hp?
So it was a double wishbone front suspension set up with cable actuated drums?
Did you narrow the front rims, and if so how did you go about it?
