Ive been waiting to run a project thread, but as it seems i do so many projects at once picking one is a night mare, plus my plans change faster than the wind, i thought id create a random project thread and id just update it with whatever i was working on at the time. The current list of candidates is as follows....

MGF - sell maybe

Rover 75 - turbo swap...first one shat its self on way home

Ausitn 1300 GT - rebuild after repaint

Purple Morris 1100 - repaint and rebuild 

Blue MG 1300 - repaint and rebuild 

Red 1985 mini - engine rebuild

Green 1971 mini - repaint and probably sell

White MG 1300 repaint and rebuild

Blue mk1 Ausitn 1100 welding and paint

Blue mk1 wolesley - decide on future

Shame that it wasn't stopped there. Looks quite good like that! (Well compared to what it is now)

Was the purple painted over the top of the black and Harvest Gold original paint?

It was harvest gold base, then someone undersealed it...so i glossed it in wilkos black. We sold it in gloss black and the dude stripped half of it and painted the Harvest gold so it returned it us half gold half black. As he'd spent so long cleaning most of the black off we decided to paint over the harvest gold in Purple. I think the black was taken back to bare metal and then purpled....i guess you will find out when you do paint prep. 

 

Best driveway paint job we ever did!

They do look nice. I was thinking the other day that the black and white plates on it look fairly clean and modern.

I don't suppose you still have the dynamo and regulator box for it? :)

I'm glad I started a random thread so you can see how my projects go. I was browsing the Internet when I came across something interesting. Quick phone call, a viewing and hand over some dosh and I finally have a work shop! So, maybe... Just maybe... My projects will become less random..who knows!!! First I need to move 6 lock up garage and 8 cars in. Shame it's not big enough for all my cars but price was right and it's better than what I had.

Yeah that's it we moved those two cars in tonight. I want to paint the floor then I'll hide as much of it as I can. I think I'll still end up doing millions of other things but I can focus more on single projects and its not going to be an issue if it rains.

Values have shot up massively in the last few years, our two are very much staying with us for a while.
