    Dr Jekyll meet Mr Hyde - RB Shed Content

    Happy 190th (k) birthday ? Warts and all showing, not all these old girls can be show Queens so thought I'd go candid and no washing for months just to show that pictures can hide the blemishes. As such no post processing and no filters, just a study of an old motor still in daily use in the...

    Rb 182 - Scotland, Marmite Wheels and Potato Cameras

    Odyssey on Speedline 675's :)

    Change of wheel again, think I may have issues! lol! picked these up, slapped some AD08R's on and popped them on the car. I think it needs more lows to truly pull them off, but as a daily I need to keep it practical at the mo, so that will be a test for later! anyway, few pics from trip to...

    Morning all I'm getting confused at to what stereo I should have in my later model phase 1 172 (Y plate) My old X plate phase 1 had a tape deck but not a tuner list one, looked older and more in keeping with the phase 1 interior. Can anyone shed any light on what should be fitted to what age...
