Hi went and picked up my new scamp from bradford yesterday.

Had been sat outside beside a go-karting track for 3 years.

The rear was full of blown go-kart tyres, a couple of barriers scrap wood....you name it it was in there.

cleared it all out and found the following useful bits:

x2 proper scamp fuel tanks the little ones that fit in the sides?

It has 13 inch wheels all round (rover alloys) plus a spare but i think the radius arms are 10 inch hence the miniscule Shocked gap between the tyre and the radius mounting at the front.......gonna change them i think!

x2 front seats...not mini i dont think but similar...may keep them dunno yet.

A fold down bench seat...would that have been used??? i personally think its been dumped in it but i kept it anyway.

The ancillaries for 1.5 engines x2 dizzy's 1 alternator x2 fuel pumps etc etc.

A metro dash (full of water confused ) various scraps of loom, and a crackle painted centre console with smiths oil pressure gauge.

Got two large grease buckets full of nuts bolts mountings etc so ill have to go through them too at some point.

anyway its now tucked up in the barn with my clubman so at least its out of the weather for now!

Also got lots of receipts and a couple of promotional booklets.

Start of project......erm....snappy title. DSC00082

And some booklets....ill think ill just use these as hamster bedding Wink Wink!

Oh I dunno. They'll make nice bedtime reading for the hamsters, who as Scamp enthusiasts would make useful assistants - they could get to the unreachable bits!

Interesting point James what about a Fur Dash most should remember those!.What about the gear knobs that had a compass in!.Those plastic seat covers you put on your mini seats so they looked like bucket seats!. Can anyone identify the Dash in the pix i thought it was an Austin 1100? Please keep it.

However stylish or cool it may be, for practical purposes "thermometer" style speedo's a pain in the [ Start of project......erm....snappy title. 169120 ]. Checking the speed in my Dad's old 1100 took my eyes off the road for far too long. For taking in a reading at a glance, the angle of a pointer has still to be bettered.

Your (informed) choice, of course.

Ive found that i use the revs more than anything once ive got used to a car you only really use the speedo religiously when you come across a speed camera.... but the point is taken on board.
