With regard to the exhaust downpipe....

This is what Walle looked like when i did the original engine swap (standard mk2 nose length), i had to cut the lower RHS to clear the downpipe & if i remember correctly the front edge of the gearbox (where it mounts to the block) had to be tweaked...cough hacksaw & grinder cough !



Now i'm 60mm further forward with the front end....

That's a great photo of the front of Walle demonstrating how it all fits in. I'll have to have a good close look at how it's currently fitted into the mini clubman in question.

Though after the weekend I'm kinda thinking that I'm letting the side down if I don't keep Pea A-Series. After all, the legend that is Pea is A-Series, runs to the butty van and all ;-)

Don't worry, Pea is going to stay A-series.  Definitely a supercharged one at that. 

I stood looking at her tonight looking so sorry for herself in the corner of the garage. I made a deal with her, as soon as the workshop ceiling has been skimmed and painted she's going to be stripped ready for the build.

pea green etc.

Post  NG Guy on Sun Sep 14, 2014 11:22 am

Yea, Pea Green is sooo yesterday; what was it about green in the early Scamp days!

I had a dark green Mk2, there was "Kermit" of course and I am sure a few other Scamps we green/olive as well.

The only thing that comes to mind is that all BMC Mokes were a dark green at first the "Snowberry White" came later with the MK2 Moke.

Gulf Blue for "Pea" Definitely!!
Regards Rob.

Kermit

Post  NG Guy on Wed Sep 17, 2014 3:42 pm

Peter Hill(s) was the owner of Kermit no doubt about that, and from about 1989 Kermit was painted red - have any of the older SOC members got a picture of a Green Kermit; the Scamp (xxx KxP) rather than the well known frog puppet.

Started striping off the panels tonight. My brain is in overdrive now with ways to cut the chassis weight down to compensate for the new cage. I've also had an idea for the exhaust tunnel that should be a neater solution to the current set up. It'll still be side mounted but in a better duct.

I'm getting really excited about getting the old girl back on the road :-D

It'll be blue book spec in so much as the rear part of cage and it's mounting points. The front will comprise of x brace door bars but no front cage so to speak of. I'll get the tubes bent up and then I'll (hopefully) TIG it into place.
