It's been a long time since I updated work on the Le Mans Mini Marcos.
Well, here we go, and it's not very good news I am afraid.
There is, however good hope also!

About time for a little update here.
Body shell is now fully repaired, including the double skinned floor with balsa wood sandwiched in between and bonded in roll cage.
Bonnet back in its original shape, doors and roof repaired (somebody must have danced on it as the roof was just full of cracks), rear wheel arches refabricated from what was left of them and all further damages are all repaired now.
The body is fully back to what it was like when the car raced!
Next step: preparing for paint.

Another tiny update then.
I have finally tracked down the only living man who was part of the five men strong team to enter the car at Le Mans and I am going to visit him this Friday in Paris.
Fingers crossed!
