They're always worth it arn't they? Weren't gonna go this far with him but you can't see a bit of rust and leave it there can you? The only rusty bis he's gonna have are on his doors, wings and bonnet. And his roofrack. Or I could do his wheels and roof rack white - hammerite of course, to stick with tradition on him.

He's in one piece again and work is whizzing along, good few late nights, well, more than I can remember now. ignition to do, engine & starter motor wires, heater bits inside, one window mech to do and front seats and seatbelts as well. Roofrack, well the list is getting shorter anywayz.









He looks like he's ready to go. Gotta find some tyres. Gotta decide whether I want to paint his wheels (white or black hammerite or keep em rusty, or just spray 'em with wheel spray so they can rust through nicely in 6 months) and roofrack. I could go on, tea and cake though. I've got 413 photos of him now. Gonna set up a slide show thing on me puter.
See you at meet.

He passed!! He failed but he's passed. Nipped up garage - tightened a few bolts, renewed a windscreen wiper and removed a rusty hub cap! They checked the work and gave him his certificate. He may not look it, but he's roadworthy!
At the MOT station..


Out on the road... 8 weeks work..


See you at the next meet.

I've scanned for the first time - decided what to scan first. This is Buster before he was even done green! In Scotland. Then he drove down to Shipton all newly green.

This photo was taken before we did any work on him! You wouldn't think it, looks exactly the same from that angle. Scanning is easy peasy, 'puter behaving itself.
