Great pics there Danny, thankfully it was pretty good weather last weekend which is always nice news for shows :smt012
Pleased to hear you all had a good time.

What's this about accelerator cable though :smt017 You sure it wasn't Toni's handbag jamming the lever again in the footwell :smt016

You need to make sure the accelerator pedal stop under the pedal is correctly set to prevent the cable being tentioned to much at full throttle when you apply the old lead foot action, otherwise you'll end up going through loads of cables :smt012

Did you need to get recovered or did you manage to limp back home ?
