New Year marks the return

Rate this Entry
After spending a year on household projects, this is my year to devote to my Sprites. Looking forward to getting one of them on the road before the year is out. Best body is now sitting on it's wheels and tires with new front calipers waiting for install. 1098 on my build table awaiting paint and assembly. Flywheel resurfaced, rocker assembly awais new central rod install and then onto the head.

I am swapping the position of the two cars to make it easier to move the build in and out of the shop. Tub needs full cleanup from 15 years of accumulated dirt and dust in every nook and cranny. Once clean, I can start the rehab and install of all the subsystems.

I am smiling while remembering driving my MKII around Germany in 1965-68. Can't wait to drive one of my MKIIIs around Lake Guntersville and the foothills of the Smokies!
