Default Madabout get together.

Hi everyone.

It would be nice for all or some of us to get together. Locations and attendance can be confusing. So I've put a map together so a rough location, not exact by post code But by rough location.

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...73,19.6875&z=6

Not sure how this is going to work out. Let me know JG if this sounds any good. Maybe if it takes off, include as part of Madabout with the calender. I think I may of posted in the wrong secion as well. Move as you feel fit John.

Either post in this thread a rough location for you or PM me, with or without a photo of your pride and joy. And I'll add you to the map.

Part built or fully built.

All done guys. MikeR. Please edit you post above, and remove you post code. Just in case as it's a public forum.

Hi Guys.

I've added you places. Paul, I've added a picture. I you want a different one, let me know.

MikeN. What engine are you fitting, and do you have any pictures? Also, your close to Donny and speedonwheels. Are you going?

We have all been there during the build. 2 forward, 3 back. Except with me, it still feels like it even now it's on the road!

There's only Ferg outside of the 5EXI area???? Come on guys and girls.

Nice idea,
Pop me on the map in Runcorn, Cheshire please - I'll be the Northern outpost (until Craig gets on the map anyway!)
Built and running type R 5Exi... though bodywork still woefully agricultural.

Sorry forgot to add the engine: 1800 VVC K Series. Donny not sure yet. Must be honest I have just side tracked myself at the moment by buying a Triumph Daytona 955i. Absolutely unbelievable. But as it's forecast rain for theweekend then I will see about trying to get the engine started.
I have decided though just to plough on and get the car finished and on the road and then see about doing the mods. I really do wish I had a fellow builder near me for some hands on advise and encouragement.

Mike

All done chaps.

Tim. What you need to do with your picture, is setup and account to www.photobucket.com. Upload you picture to it. Then let me know the http address of your picture.

If you have never used it before, it is very easy.
