Newark Kit car show 2007

I like shows that let me in for free. Not as good turnout this year probably the rain put people off. The carpark is one of the best bits of this show. A good mixture of old and new. An old Fraser Nash and a group of wild mini.

That orange car has a mid mounted Hayabusa engine!

Did a little shopping got some yellow tape to cover the earth straps. Also found some screw caps to cover the screws that hold the door trims on.

99p - Bulkhead

Yesterday I collected this eBay bargain from Bob. The A posts below the screen and the floor pans look better than on my car. Bob also sold me a spare boot insert panel that I can refurbish and replace the now rather rusty one on my car.

It was a 320 miles round trip to Epsom an uneventful journey. Only embarrassing bit was not being able to open the rear doors at first - there was a separate button on the key fob - but only found it after phoning the hire firm to ask.

Flower power

This evening I took my better half out to see some open gardens at Cropwell Butler. The event was a part of the The National Open Gardens scheme for charity. You get to look around other peoples gardens and at these evening does you often get a glass of wine and some nibbles - very civilised.

On the way home we kept off the main roads and took to the lanes. An excuse for a run out in the Vitesse. You see so much more on the country lanes at this time of year - it was beautiful.

I have added a copy of the pdf version of the Vitesse parts manual to my website at:

Should make things easier when trying to order bits from work!
