    Good progress, and a good effort. I too tried to get JRR there but too many 'potential major' issue to risk the run up there.

    - 8th owner of Roadster chassis number 2395. Kit manufactured 1983, first registered in 1987. Now owned by Barry!

    I took a snapshot of my Cabrio’s recent test. Similar results to yours. I’m not exactly sure what the various numbers are. It gives two weights for each wheel and two overall weights. I assume the two kgf measurements for each wheel relate to toe in/out the third on the rear being the handbrake.

    With the rear mounted trunk fully laden, a full tank and two plump passengers Millie’s handling is not as good as usual.

    Sorry you can’t bring your car to Stoneleigh but hope to see you there.

    I assumed that the Marlin would be slightly heavier at the front, never having seen it weighed before.

    The last couple of weeks has been like a scene from so many car restoration tv shows, where they always seem to have a deadline to meet. Where is Edd China when you need him?
