New member going to need some help

Post30 Aug 2016 19:19

Hi, we my brother & I have just volunteered to get an A40 back on the road following basically a snatch back from restoration that was not happening, the car was on the road a few years ago after having a rebuild to do some classic racing for a family member, midget front end fitted, rear brakes etc sorted , a hot 1275 & midget gear box sourced & fitted, there it stopped. We now have a short time frame to get it back on the road , the boot is full of bits don't know if all the bits are there won't know until we go through it the weekend. I do know we need a door handle n/s and front seats (got nasty 205gti in at the moment) We have done a lot of mini's racing & road, but never one of these. When we have worked out what we have & have not got no doubt we will be asking all sorts of silly questions but any advice would be welcome.

Fear not, we specialise in silly answers to silly questions! And they are always accurate... Thanks very much for volunteering to rescue a defunct A40. These little cars are actually becoming a rare sight on the UK roads (or anywhere else for that matter).

When you say "new member" I guess you mean a member of the site, not of the Club. I can really, really recommend you splashing out on our very low annual subscription if only because you then get access to our spares hoard, which include several re-manufactured items of bodywork like sealing rubbers and hand-made body panels which are made to an extremely high standard. Just a thought...
