Dutton Kit Cars and their owners
Have a read of this people. LINK
I have already posted one comment which hopefully reads with good humour. Maybe some of you want to chip in and stick up for our cars.
As someone suggested earlier I have started to write up all those fiddly jobs on the Sierra rebuild on Mr'G's forums to save them getting lost in theis one or cluttering it up.
Read all about it here.
patting myself on the back.

Finishing the engine refit, wiring the capri dash and fitting the brightest LED daytime running lights EVER instead of sidelights... I'll see if I can get away with it as they are not E marked. ( I have a backup plan just in case)

Going to Bolton tomorrow to collect some allycat wheels for Peggy. If anyone is interested in the Wolfrace Street Octanes shown in my picture, let me know. They're 100/108 PCD, 15", 6/5" (185mm tyres) and ET35 offset with plenty of tread. Otherwise they'll go on ebay.
not Dutton but close and fun to play with.
