New Restoration Blog

Post by Sporty »

I haven't yet started the restoration of my recently purchased Daimler V8 250, I have however, created a Blog to document the progress I make when I do eventually start. If you want to see my progress, please check in now and again, but please don't be too disappointed if the content doesn't change dramatically on a regular basis. I will, of course, update as often as I can, but I suspect restoration progress will be slow, and the website updates even slower. I also need to update the DNS records manually for the site as I don't want to pay for cloaked forwarding. If you don't know what that means, then it's just that sometimes when you try to visit my page, if I've not manually updated my DNS, you will see 'Page Not Found' or something similar. This doesn't mean I've packed it all in and resorted to fly fishing instead, but simply means that I need to update the settings.

Anyhow, the page is here - www.lootintheboot.uk

Just a holding page at the moment, but soon it will contain more pictures and dialogue of my progress.
Parts I need for the Daimler V8 250 (at a reasonable price if possible please) -
Bumpers,rear brakes,seats,door cards,wire wheels & hubs, petrol tank, exhausts,side lights, rangefinders, panhard rod,loan of a rear hub puller, N/S spat.

Your work so far is hugely impressive.

I also am having my V8 250 restored and do have a few spare parts. From your original list I have two rear door cards and the NS spat. I am listing them on ebay but happy to come to an arrangement with another member.

Thanks cybercontroller, I'm plodding my way though it. Regarding your offer of some parts, I'll PM you, cheers.
