Martin is correct. The car is a RHD car.

And while the paint dries, perhaps a lurid novel ???

IN FOR A PENNY

No more drinking. No more gambling. And definitely no more mistress. Now that he’s inherited a mountain of debts and responsibility, Lord Nevinstoke has no choice but to start acting respectable. Especially if he wants to find a wife—better yet, a rich wife. Penelope Brown, a manufacturing heiress, seems the perfect choice. She’s pretty, rational, ladylike, and looking for a marriage based on companionship and mutual esteem.

Hi Mal,
How is the painting progressing with your Tiger? It would be close now wouldn't it?
Regards, Robin.

Robin,
he was repairing the windscreen frame last I saw. You can probably guess why it needed repair. The bottom corners had rusted nearly away, but to a good panel man, to remove the rust and repair it so it won't come back, is not a problem :wink:

We are going to give the body a coat of top coat to seal the primer. Then i will bring it home and get the major work installing the engine, brakes etc. Once the car is basically assembled we will give it the finish coat.
This way it won't matter to much if i scratch the paint while assembling my B grade Tiger :wink: .
