Here is a little history about the car.

The car started life as a stock 100e

http://www.torquedup.co.uk/forum/imagehosting/usr_images/7/3/0/730_563ccc0803664.jpg

Paula ran the car in this guise for a while finish in metallic purple paint with a black candy top coat. In 1989 the car ran a 12.27 @ 111mph 1/4 mile

In 1990 the car was further tweaked and got down to a 11.96 @ 119mph

It then had a feature in the November 1990 Street Machine Magazine

1991 saw the car have a eye catching colour scheme, the same purple base but now sporting some dayglo slripes

The car ran a new 11.62 @ 128mph so the tweaking was paying off

In 1992 the car was put up for sale to help fund their second 100e build

and was purchased by Steve Brown, Steve ran it with some success but sold it on in 1993-94

http://www.torquedup.co.uk/forum/imagehosting/usr_images/7/3/0/730_563ccc10c4ca1.jpeg

but sold it on to Mark Burton in November 1994

Don't know what Mark did with it, but it was sold onto Dave Perrott in April 1996

http://www.torquedup.co.uk/forum/imagehosting/usr_images/7/3/0/730_563ccc151f09f.jpg

It was raced by Dave for a few years but engine problems saw it stored away under a tarpaulin for nearly 20 years & slowly stripped of parts :(

It was delivered 02/05/2015 to me

I've had a quick look over the car & it needs the following panels I can see.

Inner Sills repairs at front ends
Outer Sills repairs to front ends
Rear quarter panel lower corners
Rear boot lid gutter lip, replacement panel sorted
Rear valance, will make panel up.
Repair to drivers side rear chassis

I now have purchased the ex Kev Preston chassis and most of the running gear from his twin turbo Austin pickup

Chassis needs a few inches out of the wheelbase but is almost perfect for the 100e..

Wow, thought when you said slowly stripped for parts there would be a lot more left than that. Big project but will be nice to get it all up and running again. Good luck.

Noticed Paula Atkin is on FB Luds. Looks like your getting quite a collection of parts there :tup:
