Aaaaahhhhh. My old stamping ground. What's the hill ? Corn Du or Pen y Fan ?

PS Many a times that my old school (Leominster Grammar) beat Brecon Grammar school. And many's the time we got beaten too. I've still got the bruises to prove it some 40+ years later. Still got a Brecon rugby top too. Trophy prize :wink:

Sorry Steve, I should've warned you 8) 8)

I have spent a lot of time getting the NMY bodywork shiny, as I do to all my cars. I even polish my works van !! I used to get many comments about Rambo, now SimonR's car. The car was a very bright red with no fading and scrubbed up very well for paint that was 25 years old

I tend to use Menzernza products in the 1st instance (recommended by Alan Head when he had a very shiny Cranberry S2) and then for a once a month polish I use Poor Boys Black Hole. I love that - the smell reminds me of Bazooka Joe bubble gum, one of the smells of my youth

Lost the Elan to the lad again this weekend, pictured somewhere near Gaydon on route to a Classic car Show, at least someone is getting some use of it whilst I was tinkering in the garage on the Classic Mini Cooper
