New member needing help with 63 BJ7


Senior Member

Hi All! I started my restoration of a 63 healey BJ7 again after 15 years. Needless to say I forgot where a lot of things go. If anyone has any close up detail photos of their BJ7 (underside by rear axle or interior especially) please foward them to me. I have bought a lot of books and videos none of them seem to be too outstanding with detail. All help is much appreciated!

Thanks, Pete

That would be much appreciated! When they put the new rear wheel arches went in, I lost where the rear seat back brackets go. They also cut off my tabs that hold the springs for the top....

Thanks again

/bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif You should be able to download the photo's and enlarge, and print. As soon as I get my digital camera back I'll take more specific photo's if you like. You also may want to visit John Lofton's website (see forum members website's) for some great photo's of his car. Here's his link; https://www.loftusdesign.net/restorationweb/
