Molleur – Cheers.

Micky1Mo – I did have a problem with the bonnet ‘flapping’ at speed when it was in primer.

But I fitted two ‘cabinet’ locks during the painting process.



These ‘hook’ under the bonnet lip in the bodyshell, which itself hangs over the Spitfire bulkhead.

I’ve only taken the car for one quick blast at motorway speed and this seems to have fixed the problem.

softfeet – Thanks for your kind words David.

The car has a pair of ‘high’ & ‘low’ tone horns that combine to wake the dead when used.

It may sound odd, but, unless there is poor light, I am not actually a big fan of daytime running lights.

Almost 20 years of motorcycle riding taught me to assume that I wasn’t seen and drive accordingly.

I certainly take account of how small/exposed the car is when I am driving around.

Coughing & Spluttering:
In this case, I am not talking about an engine misfire, but my own hacking cough & head cold.

So, despite some clear blue skies recently, I can’t take the car out for a spin as it will only make me worse.

Hopefully I will be fully recovered by next week, cheers, Paul.
