Project "Tearchop" has been grounded as I'm now doing project "SS".

I'll not do a build thread this time, but it has a separate page on fb, if you care to try and find it.

I won't bang a link on, you'll just have to wander around t'internet until you find it.

Try asking the disgruntled clubby estate owners walking the other way, shaking their heads and tutting......

Oh, and as an afterthought, Chop is still behaving himself impeccably. Just come back from this year's LGT with no major problems. Currently knocked up over 3000 miles so far, only problem was a blown head gasket which I was aware of when he was going together but chose to ignore. Even then, I changed it only because i was getting ready for a longer run and had noticed performance was down slightly. New 1293 going in soon anyway......

Oh yes! The roll pin dropped out! I'd forgotten that...... and the 4 times I've ripped off the exhaust..... All a result of me being too stubborn to raise the suspension.
