Its that time of the week again - and I have some week 7 progress photos. Alan has informed me that he has now reach a stand still on the build as he is waiting delivery of critical items in order to progress - so next week may be slow progress (I think he deserves a holiday as he has done exceedingly well - single handedly)!!

The last photo on the previous post is of the spare wheel bracket (the spare wheel being one of the extras I requested). Don't fancy splitting a wheel rim and getting the puncture repair kit out on the side of a busy road!!

As expected progress for week eight of the build has been hindered by missing critical parts which I believe had all arrived by Thursday.
Amazing that there is any progress at all - wheels now fitted - aperture trimmed for the sliding side window.

Haven't got a trailer yet and the only vehicle i have with a tow bar at the moment is the motorhome - so may not be able to get all of that sorted in time.

Things are good! i have been working on the heinkel and land rover over winter and they will be working by July at the latest! (YAY) But i have been working really hard at collage fixing tractors and agricultural equipment for customers, so it has been nice coming home and working on my own cars. Also i like working on smaller vehicles, So i am flocking back to micro cars! ;D
How are you?
