Update on Irish Peerless V8

Hi all! It's been a long summers with much activity so I've been a little slow on giving updates on the last V8 car.  I believe I had passed on the news that due to my starting a new business venue and also another toy car in my garage  I passed on the project to a good friend of mine from the TVR club.  Me has completely stripped the car down to the chassis. Me repaired a lot of the inner panels on the Warwick body as they appear to have been coming loose from the outer structure.  Also found some accident damage in the left rear corner (wheel arch area mainly).  

Most of the summer he has been working had to finish the restoration of his 1972 TVR wide body Tuscan.  The car was 1 of 2 made with a Boss 302 from the factory. Now that he has debuted that at the North American TVR meet he if going full force on the Irish V8 car.  As of this past weekend he had the front and rear sections welded up and was going to hopefully join the sections this week.

Below are a couple photos of the frame and also one of my latest addition.

Hope everyone had a great summer with many wonderful trips in your cars. - Jim

wow wee great progress Jim, please pass my appreciation to your friend on a good job well done by the looks of it.

Thanks Nigel. I'll pass on your comments to Paul Guinn, the new owner.  I have know him for almost 20 years and his previous restorations have been top shelf.

If you do use them in the TR magazine I would appreciate an electronic copy of the article.

Blue skies and green lights - Jim
