Single seater
#31
I agree, Duncan.  Threads such as this are invaluable for those contemplating starting a build.  The hardest part of any build is actually starting it.   Don't be frightened of cribbing ideas from other builds, and remember that often the best way of doing something is also the simplest.  Nearly every aspect of Austin 7 special building has been done before, so study every one you can, it will be time well spent.
Whilst there is a great deal of pride to be got from restoring a car to its correct appearance and specification, the satisfaction from building a unique special from redundant parts is second to none.  For myself, I realised that I would never be able to afford a single seater or as we say in Yorkshire, 'thoil' it, so I started my project.  As for cost, you can spend as much money as you want, but don't necessarily have to spend a fortune if you are prepared to get stuck in.
