Gonna keep the 90 for now, want to see what I'll achieve with the other prop I've got and perhaps experiment with height,
Will keep an eye out for anthing that comes up, perhaps a v4 or 140,
eventually a V6,

I managed to remove everything inside except for steering as I had no-one to pull on the wheel while I hit the shaft. Floodlights should arrive tomorrow so will hopefully strip the outside.
Is lovely working undercover, even for keeping the hot sun off!
Will put the sides on it next week as well just incase the weather takes a turn for the worst.
Sorry to hear about your propshaft, hope you get it sorted soon

It's what's left of the longitudinals!
Right beneath where my seats were mounted!
The stringers had been messed with and the tops were left open so the ply was bare and allowed moisture to seep down through them and settle in the bottom of the channel they are set in.
