Hi

Thought it was about time I created a thread on the 63 e-type s1 3.8 FHC I have started and introduced myself

The DIY resto is a joint venture between the father in law and myself.
We imported the car a few years ago and have been slowly stripping the car and prepping for the restoration- I am currently finishing off an Austin Healey 3000 BJ7.

Welcome! MY first resto was a Bugeye. I bought it before I had a driver's licence.

40 years on I still reckon if you gave me a bucket of mixed car parts I could pick out the Bugeye bits.
