I am currently restoring a Riley Elf MK2 with the help of Old Bones Fabrications in Hampshire who I highly recommend for the work. They were chosen after the first company in the West Midlands ruined the first attempt and I am now taking them to court later this year. I will be carrying out the electrics as I am a qualified Auto Electrician. I am happy with the interior which is presently in storage.
The car is featured on "Linked In" and do have a facebook page.
The car is currently being shot blasted to make sure all areas of rust are revealed after the inspection for the court revealed several issues that had been missed.
I will be improving some aspects of the car to bring it more up to date.

I Welcome your comments.

It would be interesting to see some photos of the project. I can't get enough of intense metalwork photos.

Good luck with your court case, I hope its all worth it.
All to often we see people ripped by so-called self appointed car restorers
