I thought it was 3 too :whistle: :lol:

I'm off to the Post Depot tomorrow to pick up my kit, and a couple of extras for it :)

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

An entire hand.
I have seen the lotus at mch so I'm thinking we tape 3 fingers together on that hand. :-)

Stand aside caffine, this is a job for alcohol.

Workbench got a clean tonight and off to a car show on sat for inspiration.
Ok, it's an 'all Aussie' show but it's run by the ford club so fingers crossed for a reference cobra.

For me it's like being the only guy with a limp at the Le Mans running start :pinch:

And it's only because I just cannot decide what to butcher. At the moment, the 36 Ford Coupe, 34 5-Window and 34 Roadster are all vying for attention.

Hmmmm - Here in New Plymouth the Grand Copthorne Hotel has a Restaurant, not unusual.... it's called the GCR....

If you ask your doctor, he/she will tell you that GCR stands for Gastro-Collic-Reflex.... Essentially a movement of the bowels triggered by the intake of food, (your first poo of the day, basically :sick:

Point made :whistle: - But Gaz did catch-on to it far quicker than I thought he would, so kudos for that.

It's what I had in mind when I suggested the Reliant in the first place, you remind me a bit of Trigger :P

I did most of my Lotus25 almost 10 years ago with 1 hand. It brings out your stubborn side and it takes longer but yeah.. I might be quite busy after the start, so wondering how I will fit things in as it happens anyway ;)

Ok, that looks interesting, but the website is lacking.
Would be nice if there was a gallery of previous years
