The shell [built by Nic Coughlin] was loaded along with the 460 [73 Lincoln] motor, ready for the journey back home to the Isle of Man.
On arrival the body was mocked up to see how everything looked/fitted.

With everthing squared up the shell was then held together with timber across the floor area.
The motor was slid into place to give an idea on where the bulhead/tunnel needed to be.

The floor was then sealed ready for fibreglassing. Inner wings were to be installed so wooden bucks were again made using the same materials.

Rear tubs were then constructed in reverse so as to leave the smooth side of the glass inside the wheel tubs. With the shell turned upside down you can see the 1st stage of the floors construction, along with the rear tubs before fibreglassing.
