Here is a fixtured replacement of a 1959 TR3 left side fulcrum pin. The shaft of the pin is machined slightly over-sized to accommodate for the material loss during removal of the bent original.

In Progress! Here is the purpose built British car hauler. I bought this 1994 GMC Sonoma new in 94. Originally it was 2.2 5 speed standard and got 33 MPG on the highway. It now has a LS1, 700r4 automatic transmission with a GM Corporate 14 bolt dual well rear end with 3:72 gears. The brake system components are 1 ton with the exception of the front brakes which will be dual piston Blazer. It has aftermarket AC and an upgraded audio system. Aluminum underbody tool boxes are in... the plan. The doors and hood are the only non original parts on the cab. Even though it spent a couple years in the family salvage yard it was nearly rust free. The rear body was a joint project between myself and Jeff Johnston (Jeff doing the fabrication). The body is actually structural, using the 3" channel structure as a structural member. It has a flush gooseneck hitch and a matching custom built trailer. A second enclosed Montrose sports car trailer is in the future. Excuse the dust and the picture quality.

We are building a high performance MGA rally car for a very experienced rally driver and for that purpose. In this photograph the shaping of skin is in the rough out stage. The outer skin is hand built in 19. ga. steel. Mechanicals: 6 litre, 6 speed, V8, with independent suspension front and rear. When completed we might have the fastest street legal MGA on the planet.
