You're not in the UK? From the cars on show, the equipment, and your traditional Scottish family name, I thought you were!

Great job Peter.

Can you tell me what the moulding is that you used around the doors and where you got it from.

Thanks, David Aust.

Very nice indeed Peter- the body on my Alvis was rebuilt by Max Houston in Australia - there are some great craftsmen down there.

Wow, really fantastic job, did you form the fenders on the englisch wheel, or made with an other procedure ?
I'm building a car mysleve and most work went in to the fenders.
But i made them in steel, not aluminium.

regards.

Hi Gilletman
I used the English Wheel to make the guards shrink them by hand to get the required shape and finish them off by hand
