I took my covin out for a spin on sunday and I just had to put a picture up on here for everyone to see.Just ingnore the date on the picture i forgot to check the date setting on my camera.Anyway i got her out of the garage just to make sure she was running ok because i will be going on the bradford to morecambe run on sunday I did the run with my covin 2 years ago and its a good day out.I missed it last year because i was on with the respray which took much longer than i had planed.now all i need to do is sort out the inside.But that can wait until winter.Nows the time to have a little fun with my pride and joy.Thats my son joshua in the second picture He tells everyone that its his car and i just work on it for him until he is a bit older then he can do the work his self.I think when he turns 17 I could well lose my covin.

I agree but i do not like the idea of putting my covin next to the rest in the club because it would make me feel bad about how well the rest are done compared to mine.Its a bit off putting when i see how good all your covins are.The inside of mine is such a mess.But I am working on it.

Hi Peter, your Covin is looking great and you'll find the best advice will be available for the interior by coming to the shows with your Covin as we can point out all the pifalls to save you wasting money on bits you don't actually need :smt004

Get yourself to some shows next year and give that Covin the good airing it deserves. You won't be dissapointed :smt012

Peter
Can we have your Covin included in the Covin Coupe section, with some details of the car - engine - wheels etc. My own car needs the dashboard updating, as it currently fas a mixture of old Smiths (Ford) and 924 clocks.
