I have a partially stripped out bug, engine and front end all in bits so wont make for interesting pictures at the mo but once progress starts to take shape I will start a build thread.

Disagree, that sounds like a perfect start of a build thread - get some pictures up  ;)

Ok will get some pics done and posted soon. Pan halfs are shot but all else looks ok, frame head etc.... It actually drove ok prior to the strip down.

Hi Slant,

Great to hear you popped over and spoke with Lee.

If you want to have a go in a finished Doon there are quite a few finished ones in the Midlands area (as you would possibly expect for a Midland designed and made buggy  ;-)up). Just let me know. I know of at least 4 SWB and 2 LWB within 10 miles of Brum...me included ....I am near Dudley.

If you need any help answering questions just give me a shout...




Tara a bit
Chad..



Hi Chad,

Would jump at the chance to see a finished Doon. Will get new year out of the way and give you a shout if that's ok.

Lee and Mike were very helpful, Lee was so helpful he threw your name in the mix re wiring up when I get that far!!!

Regards
Pete
