New mohair hood pulled up for the first time

#1 Post by Dorchester » Sun Feb 02, 2020 5:12 pm

(Too!) warm temperatures (18/20°), sunny day thus breezy mood and lovely drive irresistible!
First time I pull up the new mohair hood... delightful journey but a bit harsh to put back in place as I'd been told by my saddler who had abundantly watered it to let disappear a tiny gap: weather being dry the mohair hood tried to contract itself a little and in the end half a cm was nearly missing! Phew! But I succeeded.
Steering & handling look more precise & punchy in the corners, either thanks to the brace strut either in mind only, who knows. Anyway it's a dream...

And to add to your misery poor soul I should add that here mimosas are blossoming at least a fortnight earlier than usual. :angel
