Ratty is a HC est with moss growing on it, went through several club members in the past, each not allowed to remove the moss or wash him! Thought Fred had him now, might be wrong.

Yesterday we fit the new windscreen & new trim. What a nightmare that was!
I've read other peoples comments about the best way to fit etc, but I'm hoping never ever to do it again.
When the screen came out for the respray it went back in quite easy...
Hope the rear screen goes in easier, (when they are made).

Got some better matching seats, in time for Tatton Park show.
(I have put the dragon seat covers back in the Corsa, for those that didn't like them).



Shame the new centre caps didn't come till tuesday :/

Getting the finishing touches done now.
Have had the black banding put back on, which makes such a difference.

Plus got a set of wheels refurbished.


Next week I'm having the side trims refit. Will be time for one of the other projects to begin :)
