Zeta restoration recommences.............
I can`t believe seven years have passed since my last post on here, in the intervening years i have moved house and spent most of my car working time on the Fairthorpe Electron Minor which my father Frank built in 1958. That is now repainted in it`s original colours and i have built up and fitted a nicely tuned 1296cc Triumph Herald small crank engine, the car has been down to the Le Mans Classic twice and taken part in a couple of AutoSolos and a track day at Cadwell Park. My fathers car is very original and i do not want to cut the bodywork to fit a roll bar but my competitive spirit has been reawakened and the Zeta will be built up to be used on track days as well as on the road. I restarted work on the car late last year and have had a custom made roll bar fitted and work is now taking place on the dashboard area of the bulkhead and on building the 2553cc Ford Zepher engine up. Here are a couple of pictures as an update, more will be added over the next couple of months so check back to see how the car is progressing.
Gotta love a freshly painted engine!
