Trevor,
This extinguisher in Merlot, what type? A B C ? Or CO2 only?
By the way, you had done a great deal of polishing for that first meeting. Impressive...

Today we were at The Kent Classic Car Show with probably another 500 cars. Surprisingly the only Lotus's there
was a Lotus Cortina and 'Merlot'. We ended up between an Austin Eight and rather large American Oldsmobile eightyeight.
This could well be the last show for 2014 as we are not booked in for anything else.
Anyway here are some photo's

Nice and shiny ;-)

Surprised you don't have clear side repeaters to go with the clear front ones. It makes the car look more contemporary IMO and they are a very cheap addition - well, compared to the front ones anyway :?
