I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before but their fabrication skills are second to none. All the dimensions & angles to check the steering alignment, awesome.

Love it. Not just entertaining but edumacational too.

I wonder if the shell will be dipped when it's done, there's a helluva lot of box sections to rot out.

They've replaced just about everything below the glass bar the bonnet & bootlid. In case anybody was wondering, Binky is a reference to the Discworld novels by the late great Terry Pratchett.
