Back home after a busy weekend - not for me as I was at a family wedding in Ireland :blushing - but for everybody who worked and sweated on the cars on the stand over the last 3 days - thank you, you have made a big difference to the cars, their owners and to Crohn's and Colitis UK who are our chari...

Do we know which day we're planning to do the trailing arm bushes?
Simon has it all in his head!

And says he has all tools needed - Many thanks

Rear suspension bushes and cam-cover gasket ordered from Rimmers at trade prices. We'll collect them from them at the show, so no delivery costs :D

Re: Rover 200 "The Graduate" launch TV ad now on our YouTube channel

Some more still to come :cool Did you do these John, off master tapes? Have they been digitally restored to some degree? - they're pretty good quality (I notice the audio has been cleaned up a lot... or replaced with the actual song recording). A friend did these from the original tapes using a TV ...

Now the full 90 second version

https://youtu.be/YOAh4cj0iCI

This is the full 90 second version of "The Graduate " launch advert.

It was only shown once, in the commercial break during Coronation Street, due to cost. The usual ad shown was still long at 60 seconds.

Re: 2019 Restoration Show Centrepiece Charity Cabriolet

Good 20 mile drive in the sun earlier today and got home just before the hailstorm. No major problems uncovered - A-post seal fitment is poor causing wind noise, wheel balance needs to be checked and the radio remote display doesn't work but the radio, and remote controls do. https://farm5.staticfli...
