30th December 2002

• Removed front bumper
• Removed front grille
• Removed underbody air ducting
• Removed radiator water tubes
• Removed clutch hydraulics from engine bay
• Removed rear brake lines from engine bay
• Removed radiator
• Continue stripping underseal from engine bulkhead - paintwork underneath is excellent, so will simply key the surface.

Next Jobs:- put engine on engine stand and start strip down. Debate on removing front and rear fibreglass wings. Continue preparing engine bay and perform some repairs to some of the panels, and improve finish on previous repairs. Collate batch of parts for zinc plating. Collate batch of parts for powder coating and some more for a crackle finish. Remove single piece noseband, remove headlamps etc., Flush radiator, test for leaks, clean and re-paint.

Soon I will put the car on a roller in order to facilitate access to the underside.

Poor weather, doing lighting for "History of the Devil" and Christmas shopping prevent much physical work
