:toothy4: Soo excited for you! Of course I am biased as it is my favourite variant and favourite colour so I think it is an excellent choice! Enjoy it!

I have got loads planned for it, but making a start by getting shot of the 7" front drum brakes and fitting disks, this will be closely followed by fitting seat belts as it has none.

It'll be making it's first proper public appearance at the Scottish National and then Pateley Bridge for the MMO 7th National Gathering. At least this year I won't be banished to the corner of the show field. ;)

Onwards and upwards!

This is what it looks like when it's polished (which I would guess is a few times already today. :lol: )
