An Overland Traveller is born - Almost!

So the time has finally come when my restoration and customisation is nearly complete and I am back on the road and now fundraising has started with my birthday party on the 24th January where we raised over £1,000 for Sue Ryder St John's Hospice in Moggerhanger (well done everyone!)

 The final steps after the bodywork and main running gear was completed was to put in the reconditioned MG Midget 1275cc engine and gearbox to give me the power of movement. The interior was finished and all the knobs and switches added as well as Metro GTi seats which are only temporary but are comfortable and adjustable.  Daylight lights ensure that I (well Matt) won't get fined in the countries where these are required.  All that now needs to be done is complete the interior and fill the tank!
