Great photos and work going on there,. In the magazine you mentioned a restoration club, this kind of sounds interesting, is that where your doing the work or is it the guys at the club who do it, either way its looking good.

The Restoration Club is where you work on your own car, a temporary bay for 8 week stints, she goes back in on 17th March for another 8. It is equipped with a 4 post lift, and a fully fitted machine shop....its better working in there, than outside on the drive..
