Hello Charles it will be done by then, just a few little bits left bumpers, plates, sill trims and badges. Looks like a good day out I’ll contact you.

Just like to share the completion of my dads Pi. We tried to get it to Lydden hill but failed. After passing its mot on the Friday over the weekend test driving there were a few problems so we decided not to take it.

So we had to fix the radiator which we had repaired at top now it has decided to leak at the bottom. Sluggish performance: the pump output was significantly below the operational tolerances. The pump was refurbished so don't know what happened there (returned). The centrifugal advance on the dizzy wasn't advancing so this was checked over now working.

But today we're happy motoring with a smile! Thanks Jonnydog for helping with the furflex.

Stunning Ross. All the time, effort, blood, sweat and probably tears have paid off! Look forward to seeing it in the flesh! Well done!
