Those grey grilles still annoy me, I wish they were darker. Makes them look faded even though they aren't really.

Couple of updated pictures.

The guys at BrakeCaliper refurbs made a bit of a hash of the reburb (6 weeks of wrong seals then they sent my rear calliper carrier to another customer and I was left with two Off Side Carriers. Useless. Finish on them was decent though; but wouldn't rush back.

Wheel was re-trimmed by Jack @ Royal Steering wheels, supreme job, turned around in under a week!

Lowered seat frames finally on. Little bit of tarting up to do but hoping to have her back on the road next week!

Were you there two years in succession? Blimey, I'll gave to check the forum pics out!

Ali, I have zero memory recall of you being there in 2009! I thought we had all Illiads along the front of that stand in that year.. :eek: As shocking as that is... It's the 2008 time I was referring to. :S

So couzens was there in the Euro bus in 2009. I remember you kept calling to see where I was haha... oh yes you did.
cat171, at least the milage is probably about average now that it's rarely used :eek:

Ha! I ran it solidly for 2years! Did loads of miles then. It's certainly not a garage queen...May get pampered, but it's driven and driven hard (When it's on the road that is!) :)
 

Ali

Clio's not bad either ! ;) can't believe how light the front end is...also how slowwww it is! But it is awesome!
