    Not so sure about that buddy, mine still has a few bits I’m not totally happy with. Always need something to tinker with. Smurf’s looking good.

    Rushed to WHSmiths Dave before you bought the entire stock!

    Read the whole article, was excellent, the magazine photos showed something I had missed before, the fact that under the bonnet is metallic black, you don't see that on a computer screen.

    I'm a bit soppy, but your thanks to your family at the very end of the article was especially touching, love it

    Well done, it looks lovely. Maybe don't drive it like you stole it then.
