    Car was delivered to Kevin at Mototechnique in Molesley Surrey who rebuilt my old Daytona Spyder 25 years ago and did a great job then and seems to have got even better in the meantime.

    Body off and stripping begins. Note the old air jack inlet behind the door which we will resite to the bottom of the rear clam

    The mess is revealed under the beautiful form.

    Oil rad had been resited to the front assembly for some bizarre reason, all the strengthened wishbones will now be replaced with new LM originals and the unnecessarily heavy front assembly with its vestiges of road use, all headed for the bin.

    More images of suspension and brakes, all heading for the bin. Apparently in 96 these were genuine Group C but in my mind have no place on this car. All very interesting but off they come.

    You can also see the disaster that are the old fuel tanks which also join the growing scarp heap.

    Afraid the next few posts are all going to be about stripping before we can focus on rebuilding and evolving this car as it would have been, had a team had the interest, and money, to do so.

    4 weeks to get the chassis prepared before a large and very expensive package arrives from the delightful and hugely knowledgeable Cristiano Michelotto. About the most exciting birthday present (it is in March) I could imagine opening.

    I have to say that it makes me a little sad that some of that stuff is going in the bin. Lots of it still looks very usable, but i guess that finding a new use/home for it would be difficult.

    Swift progress! Love the strip down stage, you mention the car was in a barn? Has it been laid up for long?
