There are another couple of new reasons to visit RATS..........But next open day should be a weekday.
And there is a calender opportunity just begging...........just begging.

No problems on the way back Lee, ran fine and did what it should do, in other words chewed off everything on the A38 & A5

Thanks

The Europa cup car is certainly putting up a fight, bearing in mind how much money fell of Gta's after five years or so, the methodology of converting ( badly ) a LHD cup car to a RHD road car is beyond me!
Just when I think we've broke it's back, I find another hole bodged in!

Rest assured though, as all will be as it ought to be, and it shouldn't be too far off rolling out of RATS HQ with a steering wheel on the correct side. :up

Swiss cheese................

Image

Rear turret stripped of the bacofoil someone had stuck on over the paint from granddads shed, that was over the nearly dry square foot of matting that was over the cracks, that just need grinding out and repairing..........note the turret reinforcing plates.

Image

But shiny things are coming together...........complete with 80's pop band........." System addict........"
Ignore the loony in the background........he wanders around pretending to be the owner........bless......I woundn't stand under that one for long...

Image

Image

The end may be near....just hope I can escape...........
