Grand Total    £3,110.93 

other expenditure for which I can't find the receipts:
clutch plate, clutch cover and thrust bearing, 
ex-stock, brand new and primed Austin 101 front panel
handbrake cable
track rod ends

Any price finally agreed upon would have to cover at least the outlay so far on parts. I do not know how to quantify the work done to get the van to the stage it is at now. Have a look at how far I have come, by looking back through the blog. What we have now is a rolling chassis with engine (run on test bed but needs finished carb and exhaust), gearbox, prop shaft, breaks (hydraulics to be completed), wheels, tyres, shocks and leafsprings. To go on to it we have a front scuttle on which I have done lots of work, but which is not yet finished. Also have lots of metalwork done on inner arches, steps etc.

I also have lots of other parts: doors, wings, inner wings, sliding door runners, cab back, floor supports, floor panels, headlamps (originals and replacements), etc
