Thanks! Been meaning to post for a while.   Reading  @Jamie R  Rotus build and some downtime over Xmas helped get my act together

Well not quite on the same scale as @Jamie R  but to start the new year I treated her to a little new fibreglass . I managed to track down a genuine Border vented headlight cover . Nothing fits particularly well (she's a little rough around the edges like her owner ) so it doesn't look out of place bolted in place as-is.  I like the look and every bit of air flow counts !!

Lol. I'm happy with it too. Despite it being widely acknowledged that modern torches are brighter than 7 headlights I'm sticking with pop-ups!

Its the "winging it" which gives me the push to have a go - even if its simply un/re bolting stuff

Everyone should give something a go.

There’s nothing to lose, if it costs money and it doesn’t work, it’s just money. If it costs you time it’s a lesson learned regardless of whether it works or not.

If it works it could inspire someone else.

Just remember every day is a school day

Keep going

Well I finally got around to fitting the shift collar. Switched to an RE-A short shift a little while ago but missed one crucial part .... oops . Never quite found the time to get around to do such a small job... until now - thank you lockdown! All feels far more solid and tighter now Happy dayz even if you can't see anything different.
