thanks Neil.  Just saw that the car has not been taxed so used on the road since 1986 so 34 years .. and a lot of this was stood outside judging by the extent of rust..

So the brand new V5C log book did not say that the car is 'historic' so I need to apply to change 'taxation class' and register as 'off-road' (SORN) to avoid fines for not taxing it...

DVLA website says to take the logbook and some forms to a Post Office that can deal with vehicle changes. I did this, but they said their computer says no... so back on the phone to DVLA again..

They needed me to complete & send:
-V5C (log book) Section 1 to change taxation class to 'historic'
-V112 (declaration that car doesn't need MOT) Otherwise I need to send in MOT that I don't have..
-V10 (apply for vehicle tax) Ask in here to change taxation class to 'historic'
Finally I need to send to special section of DVLA (Taxation Team) with SA99 1DZ

thats a load of rubbish what the dvla is telling you, i just went into the postoffice and signed a form to declare my hornet tax and mot exemp.
the dvla are an absolute bunch of idiots who havnt got a clue what there doing,why send a logbook back for a 1969 car and not have it listed as historic.

Only managed to get an hour on the car.. started fitting front light covers and clearing space for the radiator... which was not easy as every bolt needs grinding off and i trashed the Dremel mandrel thing..


Removing headlamp bowl for access to underneath.. Ground out screws...

Nuts on from top as access through headlamp bowl wasn't great.

Put blue stuff on to stop nuts rattling loose..

After getting inspiration from
-talking to Mike Brown & he built me some big red seats
-talking to lots of MM owners at "Marcos on the Moor" at the home of Ewen Sergison and Rachel
-Goff taking me out for a ride and talking to me about his two Jems
I'm now getting back onto my project after two years under cover.

-Goff taking me out for a ride and talking to me about his two Jems. This picture is from Goffs page as I took my photos on Sunday after Goff went back to Maltby.
