The latest project

Postby Matth93 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 12:24 pm

I now have sitting in my garage a Sylva Striker. My plan is to do it up (repair, respray and general once over) and then sell it on.

It’s mostly all there and just needs mechanically going over and some of the bodywork sorting.
I got the back up and stripped off the rear tub already which I have taken to work to do when I get some time between other jobs.

My next job is going to be drop the fuel tank out and pressure wash all the back end, then I think I’ll drop the axle out and start tidying the back up

You did buy it then :)

Looks in pretty good condition, and will be a nice car when you're done. Any black and green paint left over?

The chassis is already yellow so will probably keep it that colour

A light blue would go well with the chassis :)
