Beryl is now at home safely tucked up in the garage. A HUGE thankyou to Griff and his brother for bringing her back! Heres a few pics of her jpurney home courtesy of Rich.









I think Rick and Griff may have a couple of pics of us getting her on the truck, put it this way im glad she aint low!

Well we spent most of the day out fiddling with beryl but we kind of took one step forward and two back if you know what I mean!!

Started out by sorting the Ragtop and getting it to run smoothly. It all works ok now just need a bit of glue to attach the vinyl to the bones.








Then we decided to try and fit the foot pedals. Doing this we managed to split the brake pipe so with the help of carl (thanks for the pipe hun) Gav managed to fit a new pipe. Took the petrol tank out in the process so thought i'd take a piccie.



We decided to remove the fabric from the door panels and whack them in the washing machine, they came out ok and look loads better.




Finally heres some pics of the interior, Rick and Rich placed it in her before we picked her up yesterday, the back seats look quite good I reckon.



And her smoothed dash, not to my taste but hey you cant have it all!!!




Thats about it for today!!

Here you Tan/Gav .... The pics I took while she was being loaded onto the flat bed Smile
If I'm successful, I should have some video footage uploaded as well, but it's taking an age to do ... so don't hold your breath No
