    Micro Stig doesn't need to see the road... he senses it.

    found this in a barn in bauple, north of gympie (aka forever away up north).
    he also had a rusted shell (useless) and the standard 1500cc engine. which i didn't need but it was so tiny and lonely i gave it a hug.

    Nice, is the old running gear still fine? What're the plans for a body, plywood and staples?

    i've got the mould for the bonnet and doors, and can possibly get access to one to do the entire body in fibreglass, which would be suitably lightweight.
    a british auto parts store is closing down in two weeks, going along to check it out..

    in other news, i may also have obtained twin 40mm webers and a crossflow head for my mini.
