I found a lady in the local market who had a sewing machine capable of binding the edges of the ones that required edging. The binding I sourced from Woollies. This way you can choose the quality of carp...

Photobucket will no longer work on this or any other forum unless you pay them $400 for the privilege.

I've replaced the bulb holder with one I bought on Ebay. Drill out the original and replace with the new unit and Araldite in place. Works a treat.

For added earthing run a wire from the sidelight unit to the nut securing the lower bonnet bumper.

We're off - well at least the cars are. All of the six UK Tigers taking part in the STOC California Tour have now been dropped off at the port for shipment over to California. The owners will follow in just over six weeks. http://i1128.photobucket.com/albums/m490/oldrustynuts/IMG_6527.jpg At the mot...

Burlen Fuel Services if you want an SU pump. The latest SU pumps are solid state and don't have points like the old one's, so they will be more reliable whilst still looking original.

Flights and hotels now booked, currently sorting out the shipping formalities. We have managed to get some track laps at the Mazda Laguna Seca race track when we are in Monterey. I doubt if we will be going fast enough to run out of brakes entering the legendary "corkscrew" bends, like the driver of...
