Hi from Dorset
« on: November 25, 2019, 08:18:04 pm »
Hi from Dorset,

I have been lurking for a while, have even turned up to a few events and know a few folks from the forum too. So I thought it high time that I joined up and posted :-)

I have a S2a V8 3.5 that I rebuilt with my Dad and good friend @viamphie  way back in 2003/4.  Now on a 2nd minor rebuild after being laid up for a decade (long story but I had another V8 to play in and so never got around to fixing her).   Currently looking to get back on the road for spring and hopefully along to a few more events.  Banana

I'm married with 2 beautiful girls and 2 mad labradors , with more projects started than finished, and live out in the sticks in Dorset.  dgs

oh...and here's my landy :-)

Best,
Zin

Hi dude
 
Welcome aboard.
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

Cheers folks.  Yep getting the V8 on the road.  Just ordered a few more parts to get her running.  Some welding to do, bit of wiring and getting the carbs / engine running nicely.  Then its down to cosmetics.  Fingers crossed back up and running by early spring!

Good to see you here again Zin.

Check out the need/wanted sections if you need bits.  Thereís always someone with a few sheds worth of tat.

I think  Puddlejumper and Gossamer have enough bits between them to ensure the survival of Solihull spares.
