Here is my link to my photobucket shots. Not up to date but near enough to show how the whole floor cut out. 2 overcills removed one side and one off the other. The open classic is now here with 1275 engine and running gear c/w discs and 12" wheels (I want 10" so got to work on that)

I'm liking it so far Smile

You're doing a fair few mods that I would like to do when I finally get hold of a project Wink There has been a little progress on that front, I've got an engine?! Could just do with a shell to go with it then I'll be on the way...

Any more progress since Christmas on this one?

Awwww. Bad times Sad

I was really enjoying this thread and was very impressed with your work. Sucks that you have to sell up, let's just hope it goes to true enthusiast.

Keep the faith Brother.
