Austin-Healey 100,100S,100-Six - scuttle shake

I am helping a friend with the ground-up restoration of a 100-6. Now that the chassis is fully accesible, we would like to use the opportunity to reinforce the chassis. All steelwork is brought into a sound and straight condition and we already welded in some small additional braces between the outriggers and the main beams for improved strength. I have read somewhere that a reinforcement of the firewall/tunnel area is further improvement for serious use. Does anyone out there know where to find the details, dimensions etc. of this. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Huib,
I have been told by one of the U.S.'s leading experts in Austin-Healey restoration and racing that almost all of the scuttle shake common to Big Healeys can be eliminated by welding the foot well panels to the main frame with a continuous bead. Sounds like a simple solution that does not require additional bracing. If you wish to investigate further, e-mail me off line and I will give you his contact information.

Best of luck,

Dear Beloved,



This letter may come to you as a suprise based on the fact that I

have not had any previous contact with you.Briefly, I

am Amato Daniel, son and heir to the late Dr Daniel,

former director of Sierre Leone Gold and Diamond Corporation who

was murdered by assailants believed to be working for his political

enemies. Shortly before this unfortunate incident, my father had

informed me about an important business deal he

had executed with some of his colleagues in the office. He

told me that he had diverted some money totaling

Nine million US dollars (US$9M) which they had

realized from the sale of gold and diamonds in the

black market. He showed me some lodgement documents

with which he had deposited the money encased i

n a trunck box with a security /safe deposit company here in

Abidjan, Cote d Ivoire. He infromed me in confidence that the

seciurity company is not aware of the exact contents of the box ;

rather, he had told them that it contained Family Valuable that

he had assembled for his overseas partner who would soon

be coming to claim them for exportation. As a result

of this explanation, the box was accepted for safe-keeping

by the security company without inspection.



When the political situation in Freetown, Sierre Leone worsened, I

escaped into Abidjan, Cote d Ivoire and had since contacted the

security company, identified myself properly and informed them

about the sad fate my father had suffered. I presented the l

odgement documents and they confirmed that they have

the trunk box in their vault. So I informed them that

I intend initiating contacts with my fathers overseas

partner who owns the consignment so that he can come

and take delivery of it.



My decision to retrive this box, transfer the money and

start a new life forms the basis of this enquiry from you.1)

Could you advise me on a good business proposition into

which we can invest this money so that it would yield

good dividends ? 2) Could you assist me obtain resident

papers in your country so that I can continue my education

there from where I stopped. If you can assist me on these 2

points above, I shall give you 30% of the total money while

setting aside 5% for all incidental expenses that may arise

in the course of actualising the transaction (such expenses as

phone calls fax messages air tickets etc.)

I need not inform you that this matter is strictly confidential.

I want you to treat it as such.



Your faithfuly,


Form Amato
good amato
