Ron made a new jig for it before we de-skinned it, but it went back together true enough so didn't need the jig in the end. We've just got a couple of lengths of threaded bar through the front top pick up points so we could pick it up and roll it whilst painting it. Better seen here.
All the type 300 Sports Racers used the Magnesium Elfin Mono front pillars.
Tub getting a dummy skin assembly just so we didn't get any nasty surprises when using the "you can't get it wrong" sealant and rivets.

Sump pan still fits, gotta make a new lip seal one as we'll be running a new motor initially. Original motor is enjoying a well earned rest!

As we approach the 50 year mark...
Over the three days of August 13 - 15, 1964 Lex Davison, Bill & Jim Leech and a few other Melbourne motor racing identities put together the 'Melbourne Racing Car Show' at Melbourne's Exhibition Building. With the help of other enthusiasts and their own collections they gathered together, MG's, Austin 7's, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Maserati, Lotus, Coopers and a myriad of other players to help with raising funds for Rocky Tresise's girlfriend, Robin Atherton's participation in the Miss Mercy Hospital Quest.
It was sort of 'Motorclassica' 45 years before it was thought of.
Amongst the exhibits was Jack Hunnam's Elfin Mono making its public debut a couple of week's prior to its Calder race debut.
Jack's advert in the programme.

The Elfin Register notes Fenwick as a seller in RCN Dec 67 P56 as well......................

And my car, Catalina chassis number 626 owned by Vern White, had been driven by Mike Fenwick

Taking Lynton's lead the Fenwick RCN ad is identical to the AMS one. In fact this issue's classifieds is an Elfin smorgasbord with 8 up for grabs. Three being Monos, the others being Stan Keen's Twin Cam, with no price and Brian Page Mono-Lancia V4 at $3200 ono.
The Dec 67 RCN also has this ripper Col Anderson cover for Mono enthusiasts to enjoy. Depicting Alfie Contanzo in front of Garrie Cooper at November 5, 1967 Calder.

I think that's Brian Lear's car. It may also be up for grabs as we speak, is that right Brian?

Having sat unused for almost three years, I decided to test the market and I now advise that ownership
of Mono MB6550 has passed to Sydneysider Geoffery Varey.

Let's hope Geoffrey treats 6550 in the manner to which it's become accustomed!!
