    .....and I looked elsewhere for a change after rebuilding several Roadsters and running a Hunter
    for some time.

    Deep in the wilds of North Wales, and a long way up a very narrow farm track on the side of a
    mountain I found this nearly abandoned Jago which had languished outside since about 1995.



    Am I certifiable ?

    Chassis looks sound. If a little basic. Jago must have liked their box section tubing!

    In answer to your original question - the jury's still out! Looking forward to seeing it on the 10th and of course yourselves. Good work Buddy.

    You wanted a project and you have certainly got one!! Look forward to seeing it with shiny wheels and big knobbly tyres. Best of luck.

    Just to keep this thread alive, I have now obtained two good used front struts, which are in a clean/derust/paint queue
    along with other items

    Today from the pile of parts I sorted out two scrap wheels/tyres which would hold air, in order to be able to "wheelbarrow"
    the chassis when it gets back from welding.

    The wheels were difficult to get onto the studs on the back axle, so I looked more closely, to find that they were obviously
    100pcd and drilled/filed to fit 108 pcd studs - amazing !

    So, having sorted the front struts, I'm now after a set of 5 wheels !

    EDIT : Thanks to that well known auction site I now have five wheels to repaint and am saving up for new tyres !

    .....but I'll put more pics up on here soon
