Project Orion. It's started

Post  Mark Lowe on Mon May 21, 2018 5:46 pm


Finally after all the years of wanting to make the infamous RWD 2-door Meeke Orion I have made a start on one.
My first version started out just making the arches over the original back doors, but after studying pictures of the real car under build in Sydney Meeke's workshop I decided the Dremmel had to come out to play.
I am working on one side at a time so the shell dosn't flex when cutting.
I will be starting on the arches soon.

Its still in use, Niall McSheas brother has it now as far as I know, Barry McGuigan drove it once, Bertie Fisher once, Finlay had it for a while, it has done some serious stage miles!
