One day we will have to try for a 'seeing double' photo with my 3.2 (same year, same colour), hell it even rotted in the same places!

Great job, makes me want to get mine finished ASAP.

Yes,very similar cars. Mine had the blue Fuchs as well when it was new. A photo shoot would be great.

Looking great Andy, with all the work you've put in I'm sure it'll sail through the M.O.T

Mine passed its last MOT last week, it becomes exempt this year (still can't believe that's allowed).

Weather will be turning soon surely so after a few shake down runs well get a few folk together for a blast.

Well done on your MOT. I've checked and double checked mine so don't think I'll have any problems.

We'll get a run organised for April, maybe all meet at Kinross services and go from there.

Booked to get tracking done on Tuesday, new tyres after that. I'll maybe be brave enough to come through your way then. I'll keep in touch.

I'm getting it done at Progrip in Larbert. He knows his stuff, did camber adjustments on a BMW I used to own and it was far better than it was when new. The first question he asked was if the adjusters were free on the rear spring plates. I'll let you know on Tuesday how I get on.

Andy get yourself some Bridgestone so2 or Yokohama adoo8rs approx Β£300/Β£400 full set. Really nice for a std 3.2.

So who's up for a springtime run?

Someone already suggested Kinross services as a meeting point as we're fairly scattered.

April's notoriously wet weather usually, May is better but further away obviously.

We could organise 2 😁

A shorter shakedown run in April and a longer one in May?

I'll post this in Meets and Other Events as it's open to all after we see what suits those already interested. Once we work out who's interested we can use a WhatsApp group for Comms.

Thoughts??

I am up for a run in April. A what's app group would be better for organising the runs.

April good for me, as long as we're allowed out and not in lockdown !!! Good idea putting it in the event section, I'm on What's App so you'll be able to get me on that Craig.

Andy, your car looks great. Must be very satisfying to have done the work yourself.

I'd be very much up for a run sometime, April should work for me, as long as I can get back in time.

Have any of you guys used a rolling road in the Edinburgh area?

Craig has started a Whats App group for a road trip. PM me your mobile number and I'll add you on if you want.

Social distancing on Thursday by doing 200 shakedown miles on nice quiet roads and nothing fell off πŸ˜ƒ.DSC_1198.thumb.JPG.60dce6eaef5b6dfe275693346dacbe30.JPG
