Look forward to it, will be taking the president down, need the space for kids and gear, the 1200 can be used if anyone is in need of a driver though

What a generous offer, I would imagine you might get some southerners interested in it.

Stripped the inside of the front guards, primed, painted and under sealed. Will leave them standing on their ends with some fisholene soaking into the joins for a couple of days ImageImage

Have spent most of the summer trying to get the bonnet and front end sorted on this thingImagebonnet was flattened out from being sat on etcImagestripped the underside to sort rust/repaintImagethen back to black, which I have no pics of. The outside looks rougher than ever as I ran out of time/motivation so maybe next year

This thing has been a little trooper, clean wof sheets and no breakdowns. I replaced the manifold gasket before the last cruise as sounded like it had an exhaust leak. Even got the right oval port gasket for once

But it was exactly the same, thinking it might be a crack in the extractors as the noise goes away when it’s hot. Time will tell I guess
