1275GT

Post by DaveC » Fri Dec 16, 2016 4:15 pm

I have been doing some work on my 1275GT recently with the aim of bringing it to the IMM.

Image

It needed a new clutch master and slave cylinder. The old ones had seen better days with an oval hole in the actuating rod, grooved clevis pin and old split pin, and they were seized

Image

I also ordered a load of panels which arrived in 3 boxes the other day, mainly sills, a panels, bootlid hinge panel, all the usual stuff

Image

The plan is to sort the bodywork next.
If it isn't finished for the IMM then I will be going in the back up Mini 1000

Great to see the push on, Dave. It will probably be finished before my Clubby.
