Chris, I do believe that Simon slept in his van parked in an NEC lorry/trailer park a couple of years ago (mainly to stop anybody interfering with his trailer) but it was definitely very much unofficial/under the radar!
It is likely that if the NEC security staff found you sleeping onsite they would probably move you straight on......

I could make Friday the 22nd but I would need a carpark pass, as the train is prohibitively expensive that day.

Tim and Chris.............I could post wristbands to you tomorrow, OR you could pick them up when you arrive in the foyer on Friday: I will just need to ask one of the other people on the stand to let me pass on their phone number to you both so that you can call them when you arrive, as I will not be onsite on Friday.

We will have car parking passes on the stand and somebody will be able to let you borrow one to get yourself out of the car park in the evening. (So do not pay for parking when you arrive, there is no requirement to display a ticket in your vehicle)

Post thanks Paul; I take it that the car park passes change daily so are valid to get out once only?

Tim, I have your address (unless you have moved house in the last 5 years!)

Chris, please would you PM me your address.

I will post the wristbands on Monday.

As John mentioned above, we will explain the car park system when you are on the stand with us. You do NOT need to pay for parking when you arrive :)

I've not moved Paul; I think I've taken root for the time being. Too many cars to move! :D

I know some other car clubs are using Chapel Lane motor home and caravan park which is 15-20 minutes from the NEC, but it might be already booked

Also, there is a big gap between the hood's outer skin and the inner when folding the hood.

It is possible that all the internal attachments (elastic straps?) may not have been made when the outer skin was replaced. Has anybody got any info on how and where they attach or could take some photos while it's sunny please?

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.

This might explain why the hood doesn't fold correctly...
