The Fun Buggy/Scary Paint Job/Brass Work That Should Be In A Pub.

Post  AndyMK1 on Mon Jan 20, 2014 4:50 pm

Hi fellow enthusiasts,

Andy and Debbie from Cheshire, as you have gathered we are the proud owners of the above scamp and looking forward to doing it up.

If anyone knows of any history on this one we will be happy to hear from you.

Hope it is ok to ask for advice during the project please, for example is it possible to put the MK3 cage & roll bar on the MK1 scamp at the back?

Many thanks
Andy & Debbie
PS we have no V5 and know we are going to hit a few problems along the way but we're determined and enthusiastic...

Hi Andy and Debbie,
Welcome to the forum! Is this the MK1 you have bought? Ebay linkie

Feel free to post any questions you have and we'll do our best to help. You can pretty much do what you want with a Scamp as they're all different. Not sure how the rear of a MK1 compares to a MK3 but I have a feeling you might be better off fabricating a MK3 style roll cage from scratch rather then trying to get an actual MK3 one to fit. The club should be able to help if you run in to trouble with DVLA provided the Scamp has been on the road in the past.

Regards, Charlie

Hi guys,

Welcome to the madhouse  Very Happy 

I wouldn't be too bothered about the lacking V5 - the registration mark was checked out when this car popped up on the forum a few weeks ago http://scamps.forumotion.co.uk/t2045-scary-paint-job-mk1-for-sale

I would just apply for a lost log book as it is already on the DVLA system as a kit car and it's not unusual for it to be a bit vague when it comes to the make and model.

Thanks for the welcome

Hi, thanks for the warm welcome  Very Happy 

Yes it is 'The Gaffer' scamp that we have just purchased, need to build a home for it first as we don't have a garage or storage shelter but will be starting to strip it down and clean it up very soon. Thanks for the help and comments regarding the V5, thought we would run into some trouble along the way with that but at the moment things are sounding quite positive.
PS. we will be removing all the brass Shocked 
Would be grateful if anyone has any history on the vehicle, we saw the link on ebay back in Sept and comments from 'John' on here, although there seemed to be confusion as to the number plate, it's DRJ 873L
Thanks again
Andy & Debbie  cheers

Rum Tum Tugger would be the person to ask about this as he keeps an archive of Scamps.

Sorry, don't have anything before it showed up on e-Bay last February.

The appearance could certainly be improved - see http://steampunkworkshop.com/ for a few ideas. And I have some thin brass sheet looking for a good home.

Fun Buggy

Post  AndyMK1 on Wed Jan 22, 2014 8:33 pm

Thanks guys, brilliant information regarding registration will go down that road, are intentions are first to build a proper home for scampy before we do anything serious, hopefully in the summer we will be able to start stripping it down. Will be taking plenty of photo's along the way.
We've been looking at some of your profiles and past communications with other people and feel that the madhouse will not feel out of place to us!! Mad 
Can we purchase parts for the car from the scamp company without buying the full kit? not been in contact with them yet, just putting feelers out if others have bought this way in the past or do you have to fabricate everything yourself?

Thank Rum Tum for your info, not surprised as it appears to have been in storage for 20 odd years, it's not extra brass we need it's 'Brasso'
Does anyone have measurement blueprints for the MK1 as we're keen to have the cage frame MK3 built to fit the MK1 this would be easier to approach a blacksmith or fabricator.
Would like to know how you accommodate your scamps, garage, car port or just under canvas?
Thanks again

Blacksmith.  Now there's a trade!  Some nice fleur-de-leys railings to form your rollcage?  They'd go nicely with the brass :-)

There are no drawings / blue prints for Scamps only exploded component pics which show roughly where each item is fitted.

That was all you get with the kit. If you had build instructions then you had to pay "Purchase Tax", the fore runner of VAT.

So getting measurements from another Scamp is pointless as they were all assembled slightly differently.

Some items are available from Andrew Maclean, the owner of the Scamp Motor Company. I had some panels made by Andrew, when my Mk3 had a coming together with a Freelander.

If you took your Scamp along to any decent fabricator with pics of the backend of a Mk3 they should be able to build it for you.

Yes! -  Very Happy 

All, some, none!  It depends when, and in what state of undress they are!  
All three of ours are currently in garages, but they will be back out on the drive soon - well two of them! Who knows when poor Daisy will see the light of day again!

Look forward to watching the project develop. Hope to see the finished article soon! (Finished - Scamp rofl rofl rofl rofl rofl )
