I am doing my best to rebuild my 100 in my little garage at the end of my garden. I am greatly enjoying the experience and have been for the last 8/9 years however there have been times when I have felt a little lost with the project and in times like these I refer to various sources of information available to me. John from the 100 register has been unbelievable. The Healey 100/6 restoration on YouTube has helped. There is the french restoration of a 100 on this site: www.austin-healey.fr which has provided great help. A while back Simon Griffin shared 500+ photos of his car being rebuilt and it made a massive difference.

Then yesterday I was idly surfing to check the lay out of the switches on the dashboard as I couldn't be bothered to get off the sofa and find the manual when I came across this website:

http://healeyspecialists.com/restoration-of-the-first-healey-imported-into-sweden/

Before I became a teacher I worked for a Swedish company and loved it, the people are amazing, so I start looking though it and eventually find 1100+ photos of a rebuild. I still have a way to go and these photos will definitely help me.

So then I got to thinking, what other websites exist that I don't know about?

I have seen the concours info and the stacks of articles on Healey6.com.
I have seen the interior refurb on https://detailenthusiast.weebly.com/

But what haven't I seen?

Are there any great Youtube rebuilds?

Are there any other websites that people take for granted that I haven't seen?

So I thought I'd ask you if you know of something that I haven't mentioned please tell me, just in case it is new to me.

Thanks in advance
Steve

Pleased to hear the photos have been of use. Geoff Chrysler has a blog, but I suspect he is behind you on the resto. He is an amazing upholsterer so the trim on this car will be amazing!
