twin engined mk1

Post  dylan on Mon Feb 03, 2014 8:35 pm

Here you will see some pictures of my Scamp. I just started the restoration 2 weeks ago. All stripped! It's been 2 years ago since we bought it and picked it up ourselves in Glasgow. It's planned to get it ready before IMM 2014. So hopefully it's up and running so I can drive myself to IMM 2014.

That's the same one. I bought it from the person who bought it on the Imm.
I had to collect it in Glasgow  Laughing and took it to Holland.

I have used Metric tube, this resulted in some larger repairs because the original tube's doesn't match the new tube's.

All the bottem tube's has been replaced.

Hi

We were at the Stonleigh Kit Car show last weekend.
We were visited on the stand by Jeroen Booij, the author of Maximum Mini, a book about Mini production variants.

In June the second book is coming out which deals with Mini based kitcars.

We mentioned your project, and he had heard of it and he is hoping to make it to the IMM.

So no pressure, we are all looking forward to seeing it at the IMM.

Temperature expansion might push it through as well.
