No good for helping with cars as I'm not sure my insurance permits and I've never driven LHD - probably not going to be able anyway, but I don't even know as I don't even have my policy documents yet.

I'll be there with the Volvo though.

I'm afraid my presence and that of my LHD conveyance are required much closer to home on that date.  In fact I'm sort-of looking for someone to bring Giffer for me...

The only LHD car I've ever driven was a BX, back in the days when they were young enough to have warranties etc. But that was in Germany, so pretty sure it doesn't count.

 

I'll be up for this, not sure what in yet though.

Is it just turn up and they let you display or do you need to book, is there an autoshite section, my Maserati is taxed and insured now so I might whizz over in it providing nothing expensive falls off between now and then

You just show up, it's free, but a donation is expected.

It's a very relaxed affair, so it won't be a big problem to park the Autoshite delegation together,

however, this would be a lot easier to organise if I knew beforehand space for how many cars we will need.

Could the people actually attending please let me know, so I can get our space organised?

 

Also, still wanted: LHD savvy and sober driver. Will settle for either.

UGH. If I didn't have a press deadline of Tuesday, I might have been up for this. As it is, I'm stuck doing far too much work for a Bank Holiday weekend.

I actually damaged it for the show. Caught one of the sidelight nipples with my brush, and snapped it clean off. 

 

Yes, the one I installed last month. No, I cannot find the snapped off bit on the road. Yes, I hate myself.

Can't I leave you muppets on your own for five minutes, ffs?

 

Sidelight lens with sexy nipple available here, also crosshead screwdriver.

 

Diff oil change, my arse. Even on the TFFC I filled the old diff oil back in after I changed the ratio.

Why not?

You have an estate. Although a dirty one with shiny diff oil.

A sizeable wad will be handed over on behalf of Autoshite, thanks to the few but extremely generous donators,

so I guess showing off our colours would be rather appropriate.
