Vauxhall TT 1922
« on: 28 April 2020, 12:15:37 pm »
During a visit to Brookland museum, one of the reasons for going was for Xanthus to choose an inspiration car to base his CK on.
Well after spending several hours looking around, with a few possible we went to lunch and in the restraint, Xan saw it, the red Vauxhall 1922 TT, as soon as he saw it he was hooked, the twin scuttle humps, with all those gauges and dials! And then there were those twin flutes down the bonnet, I took one look and went how the heck we going to do that!!! 'Oh but Dad' was the helpful reply.

Well we like a challenge! Honest! Really!

Ok having previously used the Stephenson method successfully we choose to do the same, with one exception I got offered a crash damaged moped that I couldn't turn down so the engine will be a 125cc single cylinder, rather than the usual GX200. And hopefully I'll be able to strip one or two other parts off of it, saving on costs.

Pictures to follow...

Right now for some construction photos, the plywood bonnet has been interesting, forcing the ply to go from flat at the drivers end to curved with a slight twist at the front, however it can be done with the right persuasion and patience.
