    I'll bet there are still some unfinished Transformer's bought in the 80s and still not sold on? Although I can't think of any?

    There's no pretenders to my crown left! I went for a tea break 20 months ago, got a little sidetracked and not picked up a hammer since.....

    Just when did you start your build John? Can't have been long after me?

    Hi guys, just some updates on current progress.

    So the engine went in the car several months ago. First issue was that there was not a lot of space for the air box to fit in-between the carbs and right-hand fuel tank:

    So out came the engine again and part of the fuel tank was removed:

    Plenty of space for the air box now:

    My dad then made an airbox out of fibreglass...

    Hi guys, some more updates...

    Doors are now hung. Took the best part of a weekend getting them to line up - very fiddly. We initially used the the original Litton door brackets, but since the pics below were taken, they've been swapped for items from Napier Sport purchased a couple of years ago, which are much stronger. The hinges are Litton items and we used Renault Clio straps, which work very well.

    My Dad has completed some of the upholstery on the underside of the roof and A-posts. Not bad considering he's never used a sewing machine before...

    Some exterior pics of the car - door alignment has been improved since these pics.
