Bike engine powered Mini

This week the mean little Mini had more bars added into the roll cage and chassis to add strength and security to the whole car. Mainly across the dash around the drivers area. We fabricated the exhaust system out of 2" stainless steel and mounted it as well as starting work on the interior, clearing out everything no longer needed and making levers and there mounts for gear selector and reverse etc.

Cummins 5.9 Turbo Diesel Land Rover

Having a long history in working on Cummins engines, seeing one fitted into this Land Rover really was fantastic! The potential from these engines is absolutely mind blowing. This customer built vehicle has arrived for some pre MOT test checks and a couple of oil leaks. It's like being an apprentice 20 years ago.

Lancia Fulvia Restoration.

This poor Italian Stallion came to use in a very sorry state. Not much steel holding it together. The customers request was to have all the rott removed and all the holes left behind filled so that they have a solid car to begin restoring. We've now finished with the cutting, patching and welding but it still has a long road ahead. We wish them the best of luck!

Beuford Kit Car.

This beautiful Beuford is a faithful customer to Spunky's. We handled the wiring when the customer was building it and have helped every step of the way when our skills were needed. This week saw a visit to the customer to repair a wiring fault on another car they own, a Tiffany all the way from Las Vegas, and an investigation into an engine noise on the Beuford. The noise was the Nissan 6cyl engine's water pump. Luckily the customer had a new pump waiting so we replaced it there and then.

CBR Powered Mini

Taking shape again. This little bike engine Mini has had a huge safety upgrade to the frame as well as improvements in looks and performance. More new bars going into the rear this week.
