Nice one mate. She looks real good. Keep the photos coming and I'm sure you will get loads of encouragement to get it across the finishing line!

Hi Iain. Hope all is well with you. I am saddened and highly embarrassed to report that my car is again at a grinding halt. Lots of personal stuff has really affected my enthusiasm and hence no progress has been made for some time. As far as your meeting at Brands. Please can you forward the details to me and maybe we could meet up. Are you staying at Brands, or driving down on the day?

Off to the rolling road. Too much unhappiness trying to set up Webers myself.
