    Restoring that Moke

    Finally seem to be getting something done. Solid brake lines all done, just loose, but fitted, waiting for a brake proportioning valve and then all can be tightened up, etc...

    Need to get those new tires mounted now.

    A mini and a Healey, perfect mix of cars. I have both also. Nice looking Moke!

    What size engine into the Bugeye? I have a 1380 in my mini and it is fun to drive!

    The bugeye is getting a 1275, and the Moke has an 850.

    Re: Restoring that Moke

    Will there be seatbelts into the Moke? I often wonder if that makes you feel better in an open car like that? I used to have a Myers Manx in my teens, I think we had seat belts, but I don't remember using them.

    Yes! I put in plates with captive nuts, then eye bolts to snap on belts 4.
