Me and my first MK2 , over 40 years ago now , I scrapped it after stripping it down to a shell , still have lots of the parts
Just added some decals to, I think, finish the touring car tribute look… Next up is converting the auto to a stick shift.
You might need to clarify your comment for our colonial friends - did you mean a roll made of tea and sausage?
I have a spare set of wires - so tempted to have them powder coated black - this might persuade me.
I absolutely love the look I think it gives the car tons of attitude and makes it feel a lot sleeker than chrome. These are MWS 15x6 steel wires painted black.
Is that Maidstone RAF base? My dad served there in '43.
Couldn’t find it on gooflemaps.
Rob , Picture was taken at Headcorn Aerodrome , just out side Maidstone
Only base I know about is RAF Detling
Sorted. (Post must be at least 20 characters).
Are these pastries also known by the name of Cornish pasties. I recall as a youth stopping by a pup and getting cornish pasties as a snack after our horse riding lessons. Always took the MK2.
No , nothing like !!
should have had that brake job done!
He rebuilt that master cylinder himself, but did have a few extra pieces left over afterwards.
After the rebuild…or after the triple gainer, 1 and a half, in and out, off the cliff?
Thanks, that must have been it. A quarter mile or so northeast of Detling so a couple of miles from Maidstone. I see there is a RAF memorial in Detling.
Rob , I work for The Stone Shop , we do a lot of War Memorials , that is one of our jobs !
Gordon who I work for , his father was based at Detling !
Very nice! My dad refueled Spitfires and folded and packed parachutes. A couple of officers gave him very nice gifts for packing their chutes correctly.
