Oh yes, they'll support the weight more than adequately; it's the stability i'm worried about, it looks as a shove would see the car doing a crash landing. Not trying to be a "know all", just concerned for your safety. As we know, most times it works, one, only needs one, time an it doesn't. I'll shut up now.

Looks nice work, an motor. Am about to start similiar, on 145. Good luck to us all.

Rear fully welded now and ready for paint prep, no rust issues now. Front wings and bonnet off now and being welded. Hope to start prep and painting on the weekend.

She is pretty solid and folk have repaired her over the years to keep her on the road, a bit of tlc now and she will be good to go for a good while longer.

Front end inner wing welding and a little painting done, driver’s wing needs a wee bit more adjusting.
