Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/5)



  1. Hi Just made a couple of half doors. They were cut from an old triumph Toledo vinyl roof and up to 4 layers thick. Used a frister rossman machine which is quite small. As Kevin said a walking foot would be good. They sewed ok but the best tip is to have someone to give steady light pull to help it along. Am going to make a rain cover next then have ago at a Surrey top. Hth Swan

    Mick The details are on Dave Andrews site. dvandrews.co.uk Have a pair here but the chap who made them did the internal thread 16mm instead of 12mm. Perhaps could have a screwed sleeve fitted. Going spare. Regards swan

  7. Hello all, Wonder if any one local to Nottingham may be interested in this. Swan Jnr organised it last year as his wife did volunteer work for them. Details below Headway the Brain Injuries charities deal with people with all sorts of acquired head injuries whether it is stroke, tumour, or as a result of traumatic brain injury car/bike accidents etc. The majority of the service users are male, (over 75%) and ironically many of them still love the cars and bikes that led to their injuries. Last year we took along 7 or 8 kit cars for the service users to have a look at and they had a great time, as too did the people that took the cars along. it was a genuinely lovely afternoon and a really good way to use our cars to do something to make someone else smile. we are running it again this year on the 4th of August from 1pm. If any of you are local it would be lovely to see you. I will be going in the GTM and swan jnr will be going in his V8 locost + 2 or 3 from locost builders site. Regards Swan

    Hi I sold my Robin Hood 3 years ago and bought my sons Spyder. 1.8 vvc engine which with the low weight of the car means it is nimble and really enjoyable to drive. So the best of both worlds with the soft top down when warm and up when cold which means it can be used all year round. They are roomy inside and can take a driver 6ft. and over with ease. Think someone mentioned at Stoneleigh that they made about 60 Spyder's. Regards Pete
