Talking Autumn Blat

Over the last week my battery died (it had lasted over five years, no complaints) so yesterday I bought and fitted a new one. I took her out for a spin to ensure that all was well and decided...

Ups and Downs

Yet another 'buyer' dropped out yesterday, but at least this one had the courtesy to tell me. I'm somewhat relieved as he wanted to paint it dark green and put RAF roundels on it. Sacrilege, in his...

Plugging On......

Progress is slow but sure at the moment, none of it really worth a picture.

Now that the body's bolted down, it's just re-assembling all the pre-paint bits and pieces. I've bought a re-build kit...

That passed me by, as I only search under kit car each day. It's hideous and would require a complete rebuild: right up my street!
