After pissing the neighbors off grinding my MK1 SDL for an hour this morning, I thought best stop before they complain!
So I had a quick mock up of the S’Moke dash, think I’ll loose the ignition switch it’s a bit busy..

So, the 333 box is being rebuilt. I have a shelf full of heads and other goodies. Who’s the best person to machine the bottom end?

Are you going to rebuild the shell KoB? Sounds like a great project. What about photographing it from start to finish so we can all follow it on the cars and projects thread?

Having done a severely rusted Moke I would not recommend that anyone take one on. They are surprisingly tricky, certainly more difficult than a similarly rusted Mini.

Personally if I was you I'd go for a new shell from M-Parts. These are just like Heritage shells but for Mokes. If anything, better than the originals.

It is certainly the way I'd go, Ok it's probably a little more expensive than repairing, but you end up with a totally new shell.

Reading through the other comments, I find it interesting to note that almost universally those people who have restored a Moke in the past say buy a new shell :lol:

id never, ever do a full moke resto again without buying a new shell

There used to be photos of the while Moke on the main site, but they seem to have gone?
