Its definitely not what it used to be, every year it's gets more expensive, every year less people attend, every year it has rained for the last 5, every year there are less traders , and there also seems to be less major players.

It's on a downward spiral I think.

For something that was really good a few years ago , it's now losing its appeal and theres a lot of negativity ( justified) coming from it now.

Interestingly enough though, this year was the first year they didn't have a competition regarding the best lit , and this year was the highest turn out its ever been.

I think instead of admitting their mistakes regarding the very dodgy competition over previous years , they've just settled for a display rather then a comp.

I'll see what happens next year also, I'm sure the car will be done by then.

Those seats were just under £500 to reupholster.

How do?

The car has been left at a body shop for the last few months and so progress has been very slow, financies are dictating the pace somewhat , nevertheless work is being done .

I'm having the doors replaced all round , and this is something that's taking a little time to get right.

Many thanks for the interest.

going to need to replace the front seats with hatchback seats so you can get out the back.

You won't be able to get in the rear seating area, it'll all be blocked off by the enclosure , right behind the front seats to the rear shelf.
