Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

IMAG0299

So, collected last weekend and the first chance I get to go over it we have snow / hail / rain and gales... lovely if your a penguin I guess...

Q835XSC purchased from the factory in 1988, completed in 1990, stored for the winter in 1991 and there it sat for 22 years, possibly one of the saddest Legerras I have ever seen apart from my black one.

It was rough, body panels off, windscreen missing and a sorry case of 4 wheel drum brakes... 

Today it got a wash, nothing special just caravan cleaner and a sponge but an improvement on fungus and moss...

Hell of a job on here lads, starting with a body off chassis check, bushes and bolts and some refurb bits fresh from the sand blasting cabinet.

I will be posting more detail on Mr G's but major updates will be copied onto here too.

I have had a reply from Barry. He designed it to be polished so polished it will be. Looks like I will need some more Autosol...

I have sent Barry a message and asked him what he originally planned for a finish. I think polishing it the way to go for now. I also asked what he wanted to do with the pattern... watch this space.

You missed the H out Mr Southgate (Hairbrush)

@ Paul - Much as I appreciate the skill involved in producing that it's not for me. My only artistic flair used to be with an airbrush and I haven't practiced since the mid 80's.

@ James - Barry has said the top is thick enough to stand a bit of machine work. I'm going for smooth at the moment maybe put a shine on and see. Maybe someone with a milling machine would adapt one.

I haven't yet asked if he would sell or if he can still manufacture, you never know.
