Saturday morning and the sun is shining making a change up North. We met up at the Black Dog Pub in Belmont just north of Bolton for our first tour of the year.
Disappointment was on a couple of faces, Ade and Steve Kerry had not met the deadline. Although much midnight oil and elbow grease was used to try and get the Phaeton and Legerra ready it wasn’t to be.
Ade had the radiator blow on the Leggy on Friday night whilst travelling home from work,…

After getting the Legerra home a few weeks ago, I have been using it as my daily commute. I have done a few things to it to 'improve' it:

Gave the Sierra S2 abit of a run out today, to Islington north London, approximately 328 miles there and back and no problems, i think i managed to do it without being spotted by the southern fraternity ,good job really as i did'nt have my passport !

All the time i have been in the DOC i have only seen the Dutton power bulge that fits on the O/S of the bonnet hump and with its opening facing forward, i have even seen this hump fitted to the N/S of the bonnet but the opening facing rearwards, so i assumed that Dutton only did one version.
Until today when i got home and i noticed on one of the bonnets i recently acquired has a bonnet bulge of the opposite type/side. so i am going to make a mould of it so it can be copied......
