Back from the 10CR - car developments

Back from the 10CR - still haven't recovered but it was a great event and the car was superb.

The TR7 is now having a well deserved rest and restoration - the bodywork is being fettled and the sun roof replaced with metal. Aftert this is complete it will be painted in works colours as the next stage in it's development towards a rally car.

The engine did develop an oil leak tho so it may be time for the Sprint engine - we'll see.

In the meantime, today I have been taking the roll cage out of the Vitesse as I have sold it (the roll cage) to a 10CR entrant who is building a Vitesse rally car. Plans for my Vitesse are to return it to a "normal" classic car for use in the future.

I have to say that it isn't an easy process getting the cage out tho -I am about half way there but have had enough today. A nap is on the agenda now before going out tonight - sometime tomorrow I will return to the fight with the roll cage!
