    I went into the garage, inspired by Roberts rebuild diary and thought I would do a few things but the heater wouldnt even touch the cold so I went in for a cup of tea whilst it warmed up. AN hour or so later I went back in and looked at it some more, polished a spanner or two. Lined up the front apron and tried to work out how I would fit it (its a simple flat moulding on the romero), trimmed a bit of grp, looked at it some more and gave up.

    Looked at the hardtop I fitted last week. Filled the tiny snail bites in the gel with a wax filler stick then polished it. Drew up the plans for the intermittent wiper control knob. Will get the lathe out this week to make it. I've already made the electronics.
    Tweaked the mixture one notch on the AMM.
    Watched the teeming rain and waterlogged drive and garden.

    After the carb re-build I went for a blast this morning. Oh Joy!. No misfire, smooth tickover, auto choke closing properly, absolutely chuffed.

    Hi Folks
    Went out for a fairly dry run to pick up an Ebay bargain
    At least it was dry untill I tackled a short shallow flooded section at speed and the water came straight over the top of the screen(Doh)
    Popped in to see Mike who lives near Chard who is the new owner of my last Roadster,Nice to see her back local to me and in good hands after spending a brief spell in France
    Knocked up about a hundred miles all told only having to put up the hood lor two brief spells to dodge squalls
    Not quite as warm as where you are DC but but who wants to be driving round with air con?(lucky b****r)
    Cheers

    Had a dry run fitting my wire wheels and hub adaptors today, just had to modify the front hub castings a bit and all was well. Tomorrow, get the tyres off and see about choosing what colour to paint the wires, sliver, cream or even as my mate suggested maroon the same as the body. Dont' know what to do yet. While the wheels were off did a bit more painting and whipped off the rear drums to check the rear brakes all look like brand new so good news there. Too cold to do any more so wrapped it up and went for lunch. cheers Chris

    Well I patted her on her bonnet.
    Then I took her carb off (Weber 28/32 tldm - nightmare getting spares) and re-built it. She fired up and seemed to run smoothly just as the rain started so no test run yet.

    Enjoyed some twisty roads in Wales, honour of Roadsters upheld when two bikers pulled over to let me past as they had been holding me up.
