It needed spacers for the rear wheels. I thought those alloy wheels were OK when cleaned up!

Full weather gear and full harness belts made entrance and exit difficult . The problem was made even worse when my back ‘went’ in the middle of the build meaning it was ready just in time for the winter months.

This must be one of the longest steering columns ever.

The car brought out the worst in other drivers. Many times I was encouraged to take part in the traffic light Grand Prix. I rarely did!
