Default GoogleEarth Photobomb

So there I was, idly mooching around on Google Maps / StreetView last night checking some directions when I decided to look up the Shrine in Hurst Moreton.
Much to my surprise, when should the Google Spy have been past there but last July. And what should have been outside but Z300S #4 (mine).
What are the chances?

Default By George, he's done it !!!

Applied the latest try-out stripes yesterday, now 6" stripes with a 6" spacing and I think I've got the look I want...



and



More in the effect than the execution (looks better at a distance!) but I'm really pleased- it seems to transform the appearance of the rear of the car more so than the front.

Default On the hottest day of the year

I've been splattering on the filler and sanding it away around the shut lines on each side of the bonnet.

As today was a bit hot to work outside I decided to let the Z300S do what it does best- drive.

And took some record shots to show how it is currently.

I used a "Hex Nut 21mm Male Thread Mounted Security Panel Lock for Drawer Cabinet" off eBay. Its disadvantage is that there is no hole cover so it freezes in winter.
However I've seen this "Hex Nut 19mm Male Thread Mounted Security Panel Lock for Drawer Cabinet" eBay item number: 361306801688 which has a cover.

Default Historic Specials Day 2015 - Sunday August 9th

FSCC Historic Specials Day 2015 - August 9th
The Cotswold Wildlife Park, Burford, Oxon, England

This FSCC event attracts around sixty cars each year mainly Ford Ten and Austin Seven based specials. Specials and limited production sports cars of all makes are invited, although cars built or designed after 1964 may be asked to park outside the display area. Some of the marques that have been to previous shows include: TWM, Turner, Fairthorpe, Elva, Lotus, Ginetta, Lola, Martin, Rochdale, Siva, and Dellow.

The event is held at The Cotswold Wildlife Park, Burford, Oxon, England.

Admission is FREE for the driver when you say you're there for the car show.
The park opens at 10.30am.

This is where the kit car movement came from- always some great (re)creations. Hoping for a good day- last year's was a bit of a washout!!!

Default Out and about

My out and about pic from yesterday- at the Historic Specials Day organised by the Fairthorpe Sports Car Club at Cotswold Wildlife Park near Burford, Oxon. Nice weather this year so about 40 cars there.



Admission is free for the driver and the rest of the park is accessible so we took the opportunity to look at the animals including their new baby white rhino born in March called - Ian !!!



TBH- he's looking a bit peed off at not being able to play with the dumper truck and cement mixer.

Default Anonymity

Tried to remove more signs of the car's origins by scratching the BMW badges off the windows. The paint came off OK but the marks are etched into the glass.

Grindstone in a Dremel next?

Circuit of Wales plans at Ebbw Vale move a step closer

29 minutes ago
From the section Wales

A hotel and motor industries centre are part of the development

Plans for a 325m motor racing track in Blaenau Gwent have moved a step forward.

The Welsh government said it was "minded to grant" an application to allow the firm behind the plans to take over common land for the Circuit of Wales in Ebbw Vale.

It said outstanding issues with the rights of commoners must be resolved before a formal decision was made.

The Heads of the Valleys Development Company welcomed the move.

Good suggestion Scottie. The markings are very small; about 5mm diameter. Don't wish to draw attention to them !!!

could you use some glass etch paste to change them (maybe with another name?) much like tattoo 'victims' change their tattoos when loved ones change?
