Hi,
I'm about to start a teardrop coupe based on a 1950 Alvis TA14 chassis - I could well be in over my head but, nothing ventured....
I'm building an English wheel and gathering together everything I think I need including, as these things are rarely done in isolation, the advice of those who've been there before me.

This will be my third Special, the first was a wooden bodied 1938 Austin 7, the second an aluminium bodied 1927 Hillman 14 and the Alvis I'm thinking of doing in steel.

Thanks for the welcome. I'll post some pics when I've managed to work out how to make an album - it's defeated me so far!
