Personally I preferred it on the steelies . Saying that , I just aquired some wheels that would kinda suit the Standard ( I'll post some pics later ;)

UPDATE

Well the alloys are still on it. I've given a nod to Doc Hudson with racing number on the doors and it's now fitted with a 1500 Spitfire engine.

Currently working on some disc brakes.

Engine swap.

This was relatively easy as the 803 and the 1500 are basically the same lump, just engine mounts to swap really. 25 years different!

Bad boy ready to go in.......

And it's in!!

It's all up and running

Metro back box to quieten it down

Huge difference in performance!!! Acceleration is fantastic! Keeps up with small hatchbacks now!! :lol

Love what you've done with this, a great thread too! We're getting quite a good variety of rat motors now which can only be a good thing. :)

named "SuB-StanDarD" . . . . Love it :tu

BuT have to admit I preferred the look/style of the rims when it looked like this with shiny hubbies'n'rings
Image

If it was my motor and I wanted bigger/wider alloys in place of those steelies I'd matt black them out myself
[ of course I would say that as its what I did with our FIAT Uno on x1/9 alloys using a rattle can of B-B-Q paint I had lying about ]

I'm getting alot of comments about this. The steelies may well be making a comeback :lol

The "substandard" name is doing well. It's become the name of a small group of us within the Standard Motor Club who look down upon us. Modified/Custom cars aren't as well accepted by the long term members as they are in say a VW club or even the Morris Minor Club. In fact it's their negativity towards my car that encourages me to modify it more!

Anyhoo, got some disc brake updates.

Got hold of some Triumph Spitfire Type 14 discs and calipers as I was told it was a straight swap. :rolleyes

Image Had to make some tophat spacers to fit the lower trunnions

Image Then discovered that the steering arm touches the spring!!

ImageSo I used the Spitfire Coilover shocker and a seriously cut down spring

ImageDone :)

Apparently, if I'd've used Type 12 Caliper setup, It would've been more straight forward but these type 14's are stronger so I'll see how it goes. Decided to order new discs and calipers as I buggered up the calipers I had. (Little incident with the bleed nipples) :(

Alloys are gone and banded steels are in the post.

Next job is a dolomite diff so I can go above 60 without deafening myself.

The hook grill is awesome mate. Maybe black mags would work, with a red pin stripe or something...
