With under two weeks till the resto show at the NEC, the Can Am is coming together well.

As the Type 4 engine sticks out the back so much, there is no chance of fitting the rear valance!

Things to do, connect the steering column to the Ford Escort Rack, clean and polish bodywork and if time is available, fit some lights. ;-)up

Well, it's less than a week now to the Restoration Show at the NEC and the build is on schedule.

New wheels, headlamps, rear lights fitted, and first polish completed.

Things to do;

Fit modified 1303 steering coupling, fit number plates and final wash and polish.

Can't wait till next weekend!  ;-)up

Good job I told the Show that we may have no work to do on the stand as you wanted it on the road.
Well done there Lawson and assistants.

Well I have not updated this thread for a while so with the NEC Restoration Show at the end of march, early April being a distant memory (where does the weeks go?), I thought I would upload some pics from the show.






So to briefly get you up to speed to where I am currently, the body is off the chassis again for easier access and I am looking to do the braking system next. I will keep you all posted........

Hiya.

I have not yet got the Can Am on the road but in theory itís one and a half turns lock to lock.

There are other members on here such as Vanessa and Allan who are running buggies with the flipped left hand drive ford rack.
