Riley 9 Kestrel
A Restoration Diary

The picture collection starts off on the 6th of May 2002. Work previous to this included re-timbering the rear end of the body to make it rigid enough to remove from the chassis. Also, many parts like bonnet and wings had been resprayed. The weekend was spent removing the floorpan and then the engine, gearbox and front axle. Hover over pictures for descriptions.
