Neil Anderson's Sebring Replica

Neil lives above his workshop, where he works as a powder-coating specialist, near Chicago,  Illinois in the USA. He bought his Sebring kit from Brian Archer quite some time ago but pressure of work has prevented him from getting his project under way until recently. The Frogeye shell (they call them Bugeyes over there) he initially purchased had a considerable amount of decay in it so he has now found another, amazingly only a few chassis numbers away from the first. This one also has quite a lot of rusty metal but Neil is gradually stitching it back together.

More pictures will be added as work progresses.
