Well after some considerable time the Jensen has made it out of my garden to the body shop ( via Shaun for an MoT - which it passed !) - the plan is a complete body job with skills of Darren and Steve ....
Pictures are happening throug out and I willl post here......

There will be a little delay as there was a fire in the building this morning and after a valiant rescue by Shaun and Lee the car has survived a really big fire - mirical for the day .. Only soot and smoke damage ..... And no the Jensen did not start the fire - it had no fuel !!!..... As Lee pointed out in a light hatred moment in the subzero temps this morning ... " seems to attract fires your car does ...."" more pics added 19th Feb 2012

It really is looking good now! Apart from the covering of soot!!

A VERY lucky escape for the Jensen!

So the saga continues....we now have a split Collett on #1 inlet value -

so the carb upgrade that was planned will have to wait until this get sorted or there will be no engine to upgrade onto Smile ...



took 2 months to get all the pieces pulled together from the various suppliers - still awaiting the autochoke upgrade for the Edlebrock street avenger 4 barrel carb that is sitting , all shiny on my work bench in the garage.... but now have all the other pieces that I need - just now need time and advice from the Jensen guru (aka Shaun Collier).... more on this later......
