The Northern Duttoneers North Yorkshire Spring tour

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,…

Handbag Legerra Developments

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:

1) I have removed the centre console because I could not take my foot off the clutch with it in place because I have to get my knee next to the steering wheel and my calf was hard against the edge of the console.

Back end

Ive been doing loads of work on my S3 Phaeton project over the last few months and am now starting to think about bodywork.

I love the front with the ground scraping spoiler, but I'm less enamoured of the rear, even thouhg I've now got a bumper for it.

Any suggestions or good pictures for rear end styling?

bonnet humps

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......
