Ok, so after 8 months of sitting at the bodyshop and listening to excuse after excuse I finally called B.S. and pulled the body outta there.

It's already in Orillia with afriend of mine to get finished.

The incompetent D Bags at the body shop had the body propped on some paper rolls and ended up twisting it to the point that the doors don't fit properly (they did when I dropped it off) so we are taking him the chassis tomorrow to be able to sort it out.

8 months wasted we should have been done by now.

I love the orange and white. We had talked about it for the altered. Don't know if we'll use the orange now or not. I hope you are going to paint the firewall white as well. When I started the Bantam, I too was going to use the Jag 6 but it doesn't fit our class therefore we went with the 261. I don't know of a body shop that hasn't screwed up a project. letting it sit and rust in the back corner improperly stored. I too had to finally go to a friend for both Dog Spit and the Bantam. I truly feel your pain. This is an amazing project outside the box. Hopefully completion is on the horizon.

By the way, did you powder coat the chassis or what paint did you use?

Ok, so after a number of weeks the body is back. George worked his usual magic and turned another sows ear into something nice. To say that we are happy would be an understatement.

Warren, the chassis is also painted in water base with a clear coat.

Ok, so it’s been awhile. Moved, sold my business, son got married, bought a house and I retired 5 months ago. At my sons request we are now back on a Tuesday and Thursday night build schedule.
Hydraulics are done and the engine is almost ready to fire. I’ll add some more pics in the next couple of days.

I have been lucky enough to have been involved in building a couple of cars with
my son. Working together, disagreeing,sometimes loudly on some things, going to swapmeets to
find parts. But the look you give each other the first time it fires and runs, the grin and the ,hell ya
that you both yell above the unmuffeled roar of the engine is something you will never forget, enjoy. Ed

Some pics of the fuel system. Some quick math showed that a pair of 3.8l cylinders displaced 78.5 cubic inches. Carbs are off of mid 70's Harley Davidson V-Twins that I have jetted up a bit cause the Harley's don't rev as high as the Jag will. The intake manifold is early Jag E-Type and we made the adapter plates and linkage.
