The Brabham has finally arrived home looking all new and shiny. I still need to clean up the interior and do a few odd jobs but it's very nearly finished.

This is the first time I have been able to compare the 2 Vivas together. Strangely, the Brabham sits quite high at the back, about 2 inches higher than the Swiss Viva, and about 1 inch lower than the Swiss Viva at the front.

Viva HA Brabham - End of Project

Postby MauroV » Sat Apr 23, 2022 12:44 pm

Ok, so the Brabham is more or less done. The car is back home. It runs great. Everthing pretty much works. There are a few snags remaining but as a project it's done and this is probably the last update for this car on this thread :D
