  1. Hope to be in the Westy for Bo'ness. It'll depend on the weather nearer the time, and who's coming with me.
  2. A wise decision Gary, given the impending deadline! Hope all goes well on the trip. David
  3. Well, short story long, I will finally reveal the secret. Years ago, I had the same problem of tarnished catches. After scratching my head for several seconds, I decided to approach NASA to help find a solution. A government fund of $7million was awarded to help with the research. I worked closely with the scientists to try to solve the dilemma, and after 7 years of painstaking (sometimes heartbreaking and frustrating) experimentation, we came upon a solution to the problem, and as a byproduct, to this day, is used daily on the ISS to help maintain its lustrous protective finish. You will not believe the final result of our joint research. It will astound you, and I will now reveal the outcome. But, even now, after every trip, the bonnet catches have to be very carefully removed and each subjected to 7 hours of meticulous cleaning under clean laboratory conditions to preserve the finish. Are you ready for this? Wipe with spray wax now and again! Enjoy Switzerland, and I wish we could join you on the trip. David
  4. That's really nice Geoffrey. Hope your bonnet clips stay as shiny as mine this time!!!!!😁
  5. Hi Gary, I've entered Ballater, and I'll be going to Bo'ness. I'll probably be at Bo'ness Saturday and Sunday. Hope to see you before Ballater though. Is the car running ok, and ready for the upcoming Swiss trip?
  6. Best wishes Gary. Don't forget to get the car finished though! David
  7. Yellow "HRV" is mine and the orange belongs to a guy from South Africa, called Tony. It's a BDA engined car. The only reason he brought it to the show is because his GT40 had a problem and his Cobra wasn't ready. Wish I had those problems! Brilliant show this year with over 500 cars to drool over. It just gets better and better every year. Back on topic - Bo'ness on Saturday was great too! Back to work tomorrow, but I've had a fantastic weekend.
  8. Glad you all enjoyed it.. We were at Grantown Motormania today, so couldn't be with you, but we were at Bo'ness yesterday and got soaked in the afternoon. Fantastic event though. Will definitely be back next year. David
  9. It must warrant an Oscar nomination Gary!
  10. Absolutely awesome! And perfect music.
  11. I've recently bought a Wunoff exhaust, albeit stainless steel, and had excellent service from them. Speak to Shak or Mark there, and they'll look after you. Relatively quiet and nicely made exhaust, and they'll repack for free next time.
  12. Just a heads up Gary (and anybody else thinking of going) - Cars and Coffee meet in Inverness has changed venue. It's now at Rollerbowl on Culduthel Road, next to Inverness Royal Academy. I don't know why it's changed suddenly, but I suspect it may have something to do with the idiots in other cars racing away from the V8 Cafe last month, and I think the cafe owner was distinctly unimpressed by them. We were very sedate and responsible by comparison. I don't think I can make it on Sunday anyway, as I may have to take my daughter to Clachtoll, but we'll see how we go. The plan is very fluid at the moment. There's also the Historic Wheels event on at Brodie Castle, near Forres, that you might be interested in on Sunday afternoon.
  13. Having been away from the house for several weekends now (and been on holiday), we have a lot to do around here, so won't be making this trip, unfortunately. Hope the weather holds for you guys. Have a good run. David
  14. Thanks for letting me know Jeff. It's sad that the weather hasn't been kind to you. Haste ye back, and we'll see you next year. Safe journey home. David
  15. Glad you're all having fun. Hope to meet up with you all for a wee blether back at your hotel after your run tomorrow. David
