Well, I'm well into the build now, but I thought I should try posting pictures without photobucket! Here is the body I got from Flatlands in June last year. I'll post some more pics soon....

Here's the pan ready to go- I've skipped a few months of cleaning, blasting and painting. Very dirty fingernails after this!

I'm sorry, but your Proflex is the highlight for me in this photo.  Always wanted one back in the day!   8)

Any pics of the dash? I haven't seen any dash pics of the latest Portuguese moulded shells. Is it Manx 2 or traditional shape?

Thanks for the kind words.

The proflex is my friends, he moved to America so I'm looking after it! It's a nice ride for an old girl.

Hi David, here you go, you made me go out of sequence! I'll post some earlier pics later

Screen and bonnet fixed


Seats from flatlands Mark- cream vinyl, mmmmm! My OCD is going to hurt!


Getting the steering column going- I hate drilling this hole.


Reinforcing plate from parmaynu on here ( old skool parts shop) thanks fella!


Speedo bezel machined, anodized and polished back. Matches the steering wheel nicely, trying to keep it clean and simple.


Tank and filler sorted.
