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.
