Hi Guys,

I'm in the middle of a major 1303 restoration and need some help!

Part of the area at the bottom of both front inner wings (shell not chassis) is none existent so I need some pics that I can use to help me fabricate & rebuild them!

Do you have a 1303 within reasonable distance of Inverkeithing that I can come and take some pictures of?

Thanks in advance ......

Hi Roy-oh-Boy,
thanks for replying and the offer to let me get some pics of your 1303.

Sorry for the delay in answering - I was out and and about at the Inverkeithing Lamas Fair (lots of drink consumed!).

Just let me know when you get back from your hols and when it's convenient for me to come through and take the pics.

Cheers,
Gordon

Hi DTH,
That would be great as this would allow me to get on a few weeks sooner!
I'd like to come along today if possible to have a look at the shell regardless - if that's ok?
Regards,
Gordon

Hi there,
I am looking for a 1303 body shell in good nick as it is going to cost too much for a garage to make/replace all  the necessary parts required?
My car is in Clydesdale Classics just now being renovated....Is your shell for sale? There is a very good looking shell/car for sale down south however I would rather something local and not have to break up a perfectly decent car .
Hope this makes sense.
Regards,
Rona

Hi Rona,
Thanks for your reply and sorry to hear about your dilemma.
However, I've already started my shell renovation and have most of the repair panels required to do this so I'm afraid my shell is not for sale.
I've made a start now so I'm determined to see it completed.
Wish you well with your search!
Regards,
Gordon

Hi Roy-o-Boy,

Hope you had a good holiday. 

I got some pics of a scrap 1303 that Donald of DTH kindly gave me access to on Tuesday but I'd still like to come and get some pics of your 1303 if that's ok?

Could you give me call or text on 07786823579 to sort out a suitable date/time?

Cheers the noo!
Gordon
