Building a Special Body
#1
On the old forum I had a thread running about the rebuild of my special that I managed to roll whilst racing, virtually writing myself and the car off in the process. The old forum search facility is still not working so I am unable to find the thread and post a link. Anyway several people have asked to see how things are progressing, I admit that there have been a few distractions so not a massive amount more has been done but here is where I am now up to. I anyone wants to see the buck and body development process I will have another go at finding the old thread or failing that repost some of the pictures here.

Ian,
Delightful! What excellent craftsmanship. The distributor looks like a Lucas 25 D and if so are you happy with its performance?
Cheers,
Dave.

Thanks for the comments!
The distributor is a a bastard that I made up from bits, NOS 25D clockwise guts in a non vacuum 23D body, I fecked about with the advance curve on a dyno to get just right, it works extremely well.
