We are back after our Christmas break and now really stuck into the ash frame restoration work on the 1934 Alvis Speed 20 SB.

Ian and Roy have finished taking the doors, front wings, running boards and skins off the car and assessed the true condition of the ash frame which is extremely poor.  Thankfully the owners have not been involved in an accident since there wasn't a great deal of structure left.

Reproduction of the frame sections has started as you will see from the photos below
