Update time!

Took Robbie to his first show since I've had him back today - CTTP. Over the last few weeks I've been trying to make him look presentable... so off to ebay I went and got a load of Satin Black rattle cans for 30 and a set of stripes....













It's not the best job in the world, but it's only temporary until I can afford a resrpay, but I'm happy enough with it. Lots of people today were trying to pick at it to see if it was a wrap at the show today Laughing


Really enjoyed being out and about in him again - and he behaved perfectly! You wouldn't be able to tell he'd had nearly 3yrs off!

Cheers! Very Happy I thought he was going to be too fat to fit through the gap at one point.... still getting used to driving him again and having to remember he's 3in wider than Herbie!
Shocked

Thanks all Very Happy

Got the exhaust fitted today - look great and sounds pretty good (for a diesel anyway). I've tried to capture it on a video but the noise of the engine drowns the exhaust out a bit - it sounds much better in real life... especially on start up!

Thanks for all the lovely comments! Very Happy




Time for a pic over load. Gave Robbie and Herbie a bath today, so thought I'd get some nice pics of them together and some decent ones of Robbie.



This is what he looks like at full height front and rear:


Nose down:


Nose up:


I drive him at this height - 60psi front and 40psi rear. It's pretty conservative, but I don't plan on scraping everywhere... pointless being on air otherwise...










How inside is currently looking:


Dual needle air gauge:


Switches:





Both my boys together:






Nose to nose - note the height different between the tops of the bonnets!






Stickers:








Pics of the exhaust:




Small silencer:

Been building a raised boot floor to give the compressor a bit more breathing room and to hide all the air gubbins.
