Wish I'd known we could have dropped in for a chat! We live just up the road. Glad you enjoyed it, it was blummin freezing but at least the snow didn't stop long. Come back soon :ok

Really, really nice job, especially considering the timeframe and doing it all yourselves outside.
I hope you feel suitably chuffed. :mrgreen:

Thanks everyone , took longer than I wanted due to crappy weather we've had :( .shes had first camping trip and all went well apart from loosing a rubber seal off roof but I can live with that. She's gonna have some outings this winter more than likely Yorkshire dales and maybe North Wales 8) .. Just done an oil and filter change and it looks Fred had done a good job keeping the engine running sweet. I have found that revs seam a bit on the low side when the engine is warmed up and she sometimes dies at a standstill, gonna have to look at increasing tick over speed but looks a bit complicated. :oops: . Also fitted some nice chrome spots which Andrea had on her Mini and I like em.
