The 8 point system-

Part   Points
Chassis, monocoque bodyshell (body and chassis as one unit) or frame - original or new and unmodified (direct from manufacturer)   5
Suspension (front and back) - original   2
Axles (both) - original     2
Transmission - original  2
Steering assembly - original  2
Engine - original     1

5 points MUST come from the UNMODIFIED chassis, monocoque or frame.

I was talking to someone last evening about this, he has gone through the hoops and now has a registration document. HOWEVER! he bought the car with a V5 and a chassis number (as I did) he rebuilt it only to find this registration has been used elsewhere. Long story shortened, he lost the registration and had to be inspected by the official of the owners club plus some other official for DVLA. On inspection they were satisfied with the car and he got an age related plate to the newest major component. In his case this was a Zetec engine from an old Mondeo. So no tax free status for him, (or me if this happens) Angry

seeing the weather has brightened up seemed odd not to give them some fresh air

one day a nice rod will come along and light my fire, float my boat, whatever. Andy's pop would do me. I'm a bit long in the tooth to start again so the red one will be an "altered image" bit of a T type kit car, maybe  Wink

Not much progress on the build front. Been a bit down, seasonal disorder or something. However got into repairing a Dellorto carb for a friend, it needed a bit of welding and seemed to kick start my enthusiasm a tad. So I've been making brackets for this that and the other, my pet hate is bracket making, but slowly getting there, where I'm not to sure some days, but about to fire up the trusty welder and stick the said boring brackets to the chassis in hopefully the relevant place. Then have to strip it all down for painting and whatever. No pictures I'm afraid, the camera is dead, unlikely to be repaired, maybe some man with a beard will bring me a new one  Grin

Not me Smiley
Actually, I've got a Nikon ....D60? Can't remember the model number. It has a plastic cog that operates the shutter that's worn -apparently a common fault. Otherwise it's fine & I've got a couple of lenses for it too. Spares are available & it's a home-repairable job, but I've moved on to using my SmartPhone for photos now -just so much more convenient for snapshots. So if you, or anyone else, wants it for repair you're welcome to it.

In reply to your PM Steve, here ya go.

Nikon D60,
battery & charger,
plus Nikkor 18 - 55mm & Tamron 55 - 200mm lenses.

In the spirit of Mankiness, Merv very kindly gave me his old camera a couple of years ago when I needed one, so this is me paying that forward by passing on mine.
Yours for the cost of the postage Smiley
