We open the last thing left on the car !
|Old floor panels to the tip|
We continue to work on several aspects of the car at once - Juggling about 50 balls at once is about how it feels at the moment ! So, in order to make some space at Chez Cooper, we dug out the old "floor panels" (if you can call them that), and took them down to the rubbish tip. Having not seen an original floor of a Healey before, I was stupidly keeping these in case we needed them again ! Now I have seen what the floor panels SHOULD look like, I realise what a terrible installation these galvanised tin sheets really were, and took them down to the tip. NOT NEEDED !!

|Worn front suspension bushes|
|More Healeys at JH Restorations|
And tucked away behind the pie shop (which I have visited many times), I find JH Classic Restorations - You can't really miss it because right outside are two body-less Healey's undergoing
|Strengthened front suspension turrets|
|Scoring of the cylinders|
|"Balancing" on the crank|
|Differing nuts on the big ends|
|Scoring on the pistons|
|Filings and broken teeth on camshaft|
|Oil pickup - Seems to be OK !!|
|Shaft for pedals|
|Re-constructed clutch linkage|
|Extra clearance between fan & radiator|
This is truly going to be one hell of a car when we have finished...... Not long now. Meanwhile Ashton and I are ready as soon as the car is complete, with our P2P fur lined leather helmets and goggles ready for action !! The only good thing is that with the helmets and goggles in place, no one can really tell who we are, so we don't need to feel too embarrassed about wearing them.
Do we ?
