Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Well the sun shone on us today, so I unwrapped the Dutton and we had a blitz over the Rivington tops to Chorley.

It's another world Duttoneering, you don't realise how good it is until the roof's off, and the flies and road grit is between your teeth.

Think I may need to replace the points and condensor for the Coast to Coast, but other than that the old girl is running sweet.

Spoke to Steve K today and he may come up with us on the Saturday, but had to check with she who must be obeyed.

What are you going to do about those holes in the floor?
Patching with fibreglass probably isnt an option unless you can turn the body over.
Steel plates along each side to rest the seatframes on and a dropped box between the runners would make some sense, give James a bit more storage space. If I get time i'll do a sketch to show you what I mean.

Well done that man, we were told the caravan could be away until October so hard graft on the Seirra should see it at least running by then.

Found out today why the ambo smelled of fumes... exhaust is like a tea bag, well the middle bit is, lets see how much they quote me for that bit in stainless, fixed all my light issues 4 brake lights, 4 indicators at the back now moved the number plate up and taken the naughty reversing lights off.

I have no free time until after the C2C now, shame as the weather was just right today for a spin and I spent the day inside and under the van.

James needs to get a shift on if its going to be ready for winter. Will get over and help when I can.

Good luck with the MOT, got to be right for the C2C. I need to Tax mine end of the month.
The next Northern Duttoneer's meet is a Martin and Karen's to go over the map's and route, i'll give you a call.
We have moved James' Seirra into the back garden, as I don't have a caravan at the moment. So should be able to get stuck into it.
