56 sleeps isn't sounding a lot of time...
Its only 49 sleeps now, Sharon, but at least there is a chance of 24 PI's after rousing Johns Sienna PI from its 20+ year slumber today!
Still a bit to do, but I'm sure it will make it.

Re: National 2018 update

Only 56 sleeps left? That's going to come very quickly - I'm already burning the midnight oil to get the White PI ready for its trip to Paignton!!! And there are a lot more jobs needed doing on it than I originally envisaged, so could it end up being Plan B instead - the Sienna PI? Better stock up ...

Re: Rimmers headlight switch

Just to add to Johns post, the earlier mk2 ( up to facelift model) also had a front foglight position which gave the option of foglights plus side & tail lights, the switch had five positions, park, off, sidelights, headlights, foglights, whilst the later cars had three positions, off, side, head.

Double (and triple) postings

A good few weeks ago I thought my PC was running slow, and when I replied to a post and then clicked send, it didn't 'go', so you press again as you do, only to find that when you go back to the board index you find that the first post had actually gone and you have actually made two (or three) post...

Re: Buying versus restoring

As Simon says, its better to spend more on an original car than on a car that needs work. Welding & painting are very labour intensive and can turn out to be very expensive, especially if you dont do the work yourself. And nearly always find a restoration will involve a lot more work (and money) tha...
