moved the healey to my larger garage for (cold storage).Not gonna work on it for awhile ,have to finish my daughters frogeye and my TD needs a bit of tlc yet.Gonna try to collect the bits I need for the healey and stash them away for now.. need fenders .could likely fix these but they are quite rough .Of course I got stuck at the mouth of the lower driveway and had to dig and grunt for an hour or so.Finally have it tucked away.Terry

yes I hear you on that one. its almost like you have to be very selective in what you let in the garage because they stay for a long time and want your time and energy

Hello Bob.Well have been at the MK 2 MGA full time.almost,Would like to get it back onto the chassis in a couple of weeks. Havent bought any more cars or built anymore sheds eiither.Slowing down I suppose.Sold the 59/60 roadster and the 2 healeys down to one mga and a TD.But looking at a 59 mga roadster.Think I haven one more A in me yet.!The Healeys are still here and when I walk by them I think ,Boy maybe I should have kept them. Cant do them all as Ive said many times.Terry

Manuals are easy to come by on ebay or Amazon.

The original is republished by Brooklands books

http://brooklandsbooks.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=12_35_527

This manual has all the chassis dimensions in the back

For chassis and panel the best company to buy from for originality and fit is kilmartin sheet metal

www.kas-kilmartin.com.au/

Their web site is a bit old fashion and they are in Australia but they ship world wide and you will find that is you are buying panels from MOSS in US they are actually from Kilmartin.

Check them out. Take the time to email or phone them before you buy from any one else

So, I am amazed that a car with so much rust and deterioration could possibly be resurrected. Amazed. But I'm sure that someone has resurrected something even more derelict. Great work finding such a car! Would love to follow the project vicariously as it gets re-built...
