Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Still just poodling around testing the head etc. Today I fixed my overdrive, found the wires were just snapping and turning to dust, so thats that wiped off the slop chit. Plus on the hottest day of the year I fitted my new side screens and stretched my hood while it was nice and supple, pretty pleased with it, I haven't got the wires or even the holders welded to the roll bar so thinking of a spar, like they tension sails with, simply slotted across and tensioned to hold the shape. I also bought a cheap breathable water proof cover off the e bay for a tenner, didn't expect much, and thats exactly what I got, but, it works, so I have to use it. Plus I had to fix the Sierra ( that will be on my headstone)

Went down the old part of Plymouth and up on the Hoe last evening. Its a bit like a cruise ! Bloody Harleys everywhere and hairy bikers. Went for a Jasper's and left the car in the park. Came back to find it being looked at by said bikers, turned out to be a friendly bunch (phew!). Long conversation about things and IVA came up, seems kits are the hardest thing to get through the test, Hotrods being retested are not to bad depending on the chassis mods etc. Bikes is easy but American cars are a bitch due to the radius of bumpers, mirrors etc. Then my grand daughter turned up taking photo's and a few took offence and dissapeared. Followed by me and her smartly :-))

No spare room but I am sure I could fit you in the house. Your Melos would be a very popular girl over here.
