Just joined the forum having bought a 1953 forum.  There is a great mechanics workshop manual online which has helped me clean out from the tank to the card today.  Had the car 4 days and learning fast  about it's unique character.  Great fun.
Would be great to know if there is anyone out there with some practical knowledge to offset against the theoretical stuff.
Thinking short term of adding sympathetic indicators as the trafficators don't fill me with confidence, by that I mean others noticing them.
Also considering longer term about maybe an engine swap, to both preserve the original engine and to allow me to reach 40mph in under one hour (haha).
Welcome all thoughts advice etc.

Hi Steve

Thanks for the warm welcome and the link to the resources.

When I have some more time I will post about more about the car, in the meantime here are some photos (if I have uploaded correctly).

Nice car, and in good nick too.
If you want I can send you a "how-to" drawing to convert from Semaphores to blinkers or both together.

Not done it myself, but you can slot in a spit or herald engine and have a bit more oomph. But then, it is a car to enjoy at pedestrian speeds


round the bend might be the best place to be.
slightly mad but mostly harmless
