Wing will be "high top" as apposed to "flat top" for a correct restoration :wink: Shape of top of the wing changed about 1973/4

My car has High Tops. You can see the subtle 'up-lift' from the bonnet to the outer edgeImage

Hello again

thought I would give an update as to how its going.

I've got the car pretty much stripped down to the shell and up on axle stands. Interior is out and stored safe( mouse got to the passengers seat :cry: ) All the engine and running gear is off, I'm going to clean it up and maybe sell it, or keep it just in case.

I'm definetly putting a larger engine in but was wondering if anyone knows any what would fit, v6-v8 or straight. Maybe even diesel? Engine bay has a 700x700 space so there's definetly room.

Next step will be getting it on the spit roast and getting it flipped over. I'll get a few links for pictures up soon.

Thanks
