Cellulose Paint Factor

These (http://www.carrestorationpaints.co.uk/) have supplied my needs for my Marlin, the A352, and now the Monaco. Good service and price.

Thumbs up Prescott & Bromyard

Hi Lucky

Many thanks for that, I'm very flattered that they've used that picture. I registered for the Speed Festival also, fingers crossed it'll be accepted! I chose this picture to support it.

After a most enjoyable and lengthy midwinter break, I at last motivated myself to wander down to the chilly cave hoping that I could find something simple on which to break my 2019 duck.

Talking Off to a Flying Start in 2019

Today's sortie in the A352 was to the Cotswold Classic Car Club meeting at Shipton Oliffe, a handy venue for me, being only 12 or so miles away. I arrived at 1130 and was lucky to get in the pub car...

Car Park Capers

I popped out early yesterday in the Micra to collect an Ebay item from Argos in Sainsbury's, but without my camera, which I immediately regretted. On return home I uncovered the A352, grabbed the...

Talking Xmas Sunshine

Today, lured out by the lunchtime sunshine, I uncovered the A352 and took her out for a spin around my favourite short lap, which is uphill outbound to get the oil good and warm. On the way back,...

The Easy Option x 2

I wandered down to the cave the other day to address the problem of enabling cable operation of the DCD. I decided that I could probably cobble together something that would work. Some sort of cable...

I hope so!

Smile Overkill? Probably.

Ever since trial fitting the steering column and wheel I'd been wondering how best to move the wheel back for a more comfortable driving position and to ease entry. I'd considered having the column...

45% of all Spitfires, 141,449 of 314,332 made, were exported to the USA. As I mentioned above, Moss, the only UK supplier I could find, couldn't be bothered to answer my e-mail query, hence my US...

This last week or so I've nibbled away at the remaining tasks. I had help one day, removed the body and mounted the radius arm brackets at long last. The next day I spent a good while carefully...

Talking Why not, if the sun's out?

I hadn't planned on doing any work today, but the sight of the blue sky and sun lured me down to the cave. What to do? I'd removed the twin SUs in the week and, on replacing the bonnet, remembered...

Exclamation Rain Stops Play - Almost

Despite wandering down to the cave every morning since my last post, I've not achieved much, the sound of the rain beating on the corrugated iron roof being hardly inspirational. I did notice that,...

Thanks for that, but the shape of the casting precludes any stock fastening sitting nicely.

Another few hours today saw the third wing in place, again after much to-ing and fro-ing to make ever smaller adjustments to the bends in the stays. Once happy with it I started on the last one,...
