Building a Special Body
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.

Very nice looking work Ian

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

Funnily enough, I noticed the very same 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.
