Mowett Mustang - help needed

Recommended Posts

I have recently bought this mowett mustang, it starts first pull, it has been lightly modified to fit the previous owner, non the less I love it, but there’s just one problem... it has no bonnet. I have looked online but with parts being scarce I had no luck! If anyone knows of one for sale or even has one we’re they could note down dimension for me to make one from scratch that would be amazing.

Thanks for your interest,

Elliot

Hello Ellliot and welcome to the forum

 

Just bought a Mustang myself at the weekend having owned a couple a few years back, they are a quirky little machine !

 

Try forum member nigel for a bonnet, he may have some bits left... :thumbs:

 

Here's some photos of mine,which will be returned to the correct colours soon!

Throughout the last 3-4 days I had started to make and assemble a bonnet for my mower. I eyeballed the tamplate from genuine bonnets of the internet and matched it with my mower. After transferring it to metal and learning to weld and paint I’ve finally come to a product I’m happy with. Unfrotantly I haven’t been able to mimic the grills and headlights. However the Next step is the decals. Dose anyone have any recommendation to we’re I should get some? 

Thanks Elliot

Just a thought, the false Louvres could be done with a bead roller , and headlight panels 12 ton press

But very nice job you have made their

I had already considered using a press for the headlights likewise for the grills. However I am unaware what a bead roller is, I’ll have a look after this post. Although I am not sure if i would be able to get acces to these pieces of equipment. My school dose have a press and my teacher would/should let me use it. 

Thanks for the ideas, I’m defenatly going to look closer into getting the false Louvres.
