Now that my Tourer is out of the paint shop, both Tourer and Cabriolet will get a thorough service, 45 will go to the great head gasket yard in the sky and Tourer be ones everyday car, fingers crossed
Then keep this quiet a 25 to be purchased for young ladies first car (when she passes her test) and if I score enough brownie points from that just might get a Coupe!!

Headlining for me next, on my 216 hatch. It's dropped and it's been scuffed badly at the back.

Got the material, made some measurements and constructed some basic flat blade-like tools that might help the job go smoothly.

We'll wait and see. I should be having a go next week or the week after, pending getting a few other bits sorted.

I'd like to get my Enfield powering itself this year I believe for the first time since 1994 ish when it last had juice through the motor. But then other cars get in the way! Got to get my Blue Pullman train finished in 4mm too as its been on the bench for nearly twenty years too! Generally I am good at finishing things!
