Today had a visit with sake of snowy in mind.  Hes not the best..and i think he knew his dayson are numbered both him and caster conspired to prevent sale..first by wetting themselves.And then refusing to start despite battery changes..easy start pushing.  Caster still not starting.. though 3hrs battery charge and snowy turned over.
Still hard to even sell when I've not got him anywhere near what I would like. Hes running and solid just needs roof and makeup

All good thanks, yourself? Well, to start with get rid of all the rust, then rattle can over it to stop more ahaha, get it running going to have to change the wheels, thinking ronal turbos and then make it motable then drive it whilst i buy all the shiney bits ahah. I'm going to put it on throttle bodies and want to get rid of the afternarket sunroof so might go for a carbon one, do some bits to the interior then save up for a pukka respray. 
Chromed grill sounds good to me 😀
