    It's finally getting bigger again, rebuilt and part painted chassis, here's a current pic .

    I've just decided that the fuel tank is too far gone to save. Would you believe it's the
    Escort Van tank, same as in Marina based Roadsters, so if anyone has or knows the
    whereabouts of one, please let me know.

    Thanks DC

    They are about as rare as rocking horse poo! I gave up looking and had a tank fabricated. Not so expensive as you might think.
    Cheers Robin

    That's my feeling too Robin. No rush so I'll keep looking and also perhaps think about others ie MG Midget etc etc.

    If all fails, then it will have to be fabricated

    Gentlemen I advertised Escort van/ estate mk11 tanks on here several times. There is a cost to them because of my storage costs , and they are not new but in very good condition £100 Danny.

    I’ve got one in the attic of my garage in the UK.
    I am not planning to fly back anytime soon, but there’s a real treasure trove up there.

    Ok, slow but definite progress again. The real reason for this post is to give a plug for Past Parts https://www.pastparts.co.uk/

    Tel 01284 750729 or email restore@pastparts.co.uk. Nigel there is a very helpful guy, I was having great difficulty finding a
    seal kit for my brake m/cylinder - or even a replacement item.........there is now a kit on it's way to me, many thanks to Nigel

    Nice out so I thought I'd get it out !

    With the engine hoist and stand now redundant it was time for a shuffle around in the garage.

    I won't bore you with details, but Jago progress continues
