Thanks Johnnie2sheds.

When running Chattenden on the weekend I realised that the sound was too quiet, and could not be heard above the motor wine when under load. So I ended taking the bonnet off last night and turning the volume up so hopefully it will be a little louder. I also took the opportunity to tidy the wires up a little bit.

Hopefully more videos at the weekend.

Look what arrived in the post.  Very Happy  



Thanks to Narrow Planet and John Lythgoe for the plates.While watching the rugby and studied several photos, the plates were fitted. Makes a big difference. I used double sided sticky tape so as to not damage the paint.







The number plate is not quite in the right place, but it's a compromise with the body work detail.
