    I'm familiar with Austin Healeys, a mate of mine owned one some years back, ridden in it lots and lots, and put 'essential supplies' (beer,) in the boot (trunk,) many times.
    Until I saw that photograph I had never noticed that the boot hinges are standard Morris Minor 1000.

    Never too old to learn huh?

    And yeah, I too can only repeat Charlie and Uncle Bob's 'WOW!'

    I got out of school in '76 and moved to KC to work, and I would go through the KC Times Sunday paper classifieds looking for "deals". I remember looking at '67 Fastback Mustangs for $1800 and saying to myself "You can't pay $1800 for a car that's 10 years old and only cost $3000!"; and I always scrolled through the "Imported" section looking for an Austin Healey 3000! Like the Mustangs, I'd see one for $1200 or $1500 and scoff at it, thinking they were asking crazy money! Oh to have that "Way Back Machine" today......

    You're doing some fantastic work on this Healey! Looking forward to seeing it complete!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Thanks for the comments guys! Always fun to take a day for louvers!


    Time to play catch up here..


    Vince got two of the milk cans media blasted and worked on the third while I sprayed some SPI epoxy primer on the first two.








    Also got some epoxy on the hood brace...





    Ends are quite a bit better than before..








    I received a state of the art drawing the other day, and was asked if we could duplicate the 1/16 offset shown...





    Of course this meant we needed some new tooling..











    Our first sample, with the proper 3/4 flange...











    We had another panel that would require the offset on two adjacent edges, so one more sample...











    video action:

    That'll do pig, that'll do.


    Some of the upholstery parts have been trickling in... so let's add some bling factor....




















    ….and we made a hand punch for setting the trim tag rivets on the cowl...








    video version:

    And finally, we also had some 3/8 stainless fuel line to straighten out of it's coil for a big block mopar… Video parts 1, 2, and 3:

    More progress in the shop, another upholstered piece getting assembled... this one the driver's side rear kick panel. Our polished stainless seat belt escutcheons are installed, one in the front for the lap belt and up top for the shoulder belt.








    Midrange and tweeter installed....

    And we got a new "radius" fixture for the Tommasini wheeling machine, allows you to use it to form radius on flat bar and other shapes..





    action shot....
