At least you don't suffer with the stuck clutch that nearly everyone else seems to :lol: Good to hear Gabby is OK, how is our Gil getting on?

Used the van every day for work this week and clocked up 238 miles, think it has done it the world of good as even the clutch judder has stopped. The only job it needs now is the new fan belt adjusting, just starting to slip when lights and heater is on. Its done better on fuel than my modern as well. :-D

Not much to report on my cars, to be honest I've lost enthusiasm with regards to TTM so not sure if or when I'll get around to it again but in the meantime here's some pics of a steering wheel I'm refurbishing for Kev.

Lots of scratches had to be filled in after scraping off the flaky sun damage,

It's ready for paint pretty much, just need to give it another coat of plastic primer. I'll post some more pics when it's done :thumbup:

Oh Gareth, I was looking forward to seeing TTM at the Nationals, definitely in the running for the Most Improved award.

I'll get back in to it eventually, it's all this rain I think. I'm always a miserable git when the weather is sh*t :lol:

Yeah, I can go with that. The Triumph is being a git at the moment and is therefore being ignored- no inclination to go out in the cold and wet to work on it! Mind you if I drove it it'd only dissolve even faster with the half inch deep coating of salt Gloucestershire CC has decided to resurface our roads in this winter (they'll have run out by the time it actually snows...) if I could actually drive it. That said I was just looking at Tony's pictures and thinking fair play to Harry getting out there and cracking on with it, he's making me feel like a wimp (I am a soft southerner though!).

Evenings are starting to draw out, another month or two and it'll be warming up 8-)

Nice work on the wheel by the way!
