The Excel definitely went through the level crossing on red lights given the timing of the barriers coming down! That was Terrible!

Music: - not too bad-a-song lyric-wise - but could do with a remix -the balance of backing guitar(s) to vocal was TERRIBLE! :lol: I did like the guitar solo though.

Good video ..you could feel the speed on the slip roads and flatness and fluidity on the roundabouts. A very successful conversion in that respect! 8)

Looks like they fitted a master Cylinder and presumably filled the brake lines before the body went back on. Interesting.
I wish my progress was that swift :D

Awful lot of standing around by those LB workers, especially that Dave geezer. He was sat down half the time too!
Umm! What to do next?

You're very welcome to see it. Still a year or so away from being on the road though. I'll PM you some details and we can arrange something.
