my inspiration for building these 64/74 series came about last year when i paid 75quid to buy what was supposed to be a new shape 6480 and when it arrived it was smashed in box but also was only a uh 5480 stuck on a landini chassis...the 5480 bonnet looks absolutely nothing like the new 65/74 bonnets,the new 64/74 bonnet im working on at min,ive spent 14hrs so far trying to get it right,they curve in halfway to allow the wheels to get a full lock and the bottom also curves up,they are a very tricky bonnet to make as there all hand carved,ive to add side panels to it yet and then pick a suitable base model to put it on so you,s prob wont see it for a month or two yet,yes i know there plans from a manufacturer to release one this year but im going to go ahead with mine anyway,itll probably be a one off unless i cast the bonnet...the supposedly 6480 i bought for 75 quid later got the chop as i was so dissapointed with it and i turned it into an old shape 7495,so i learned my lesson by buying about buying convo,s with absolutely no thought put into them,i would nt sell a mf convo unless it was good enough to display on my own shelf
