The stand this year will be great.

We intend to recommission the DTR over the course of the show. It will need a small amount of welding done and this will be done before the show but my plan is to transport the car in on a trailer during build up and during the course of the show:

Replace the complete braking system including all rubber hoses, pipes, calipers, discs, fill with silicone brake fluid and bleed the brakes.
Replace the fuel system, including pipes and hoses.
Whilst at the show the radiator will be reconditioned for us by a local company ready to refit.
Refit the engine and gearbox
Fit a new stainless steel exhaust system
Refurbish the cooling system fitting all new hoses and the new rad, fill the cooling system when done.
Refurbish the steering replacing bushes, balljoints and parts where necessary, maybe the rack if needed.
Fit Lumenition Optronic electronic ignition and Cibie halogen headlamps wiring in relays.
Fit new tyres, this will be done on the Saturday at a local tyre fitters.

Then hopefully on Sunday evening we will be in a position to put some fuel in the tank, start the car and drive her out of the show during breakdown.

It is ambitious to say the least but with the volunteers that I have to help me it should be ready for an MOT on the Monday morning!

The stand will be set up like a garage so that the public can get a good view of what we are doing, we will have a couple of other cars on display as well.

Now that’s what I call a timely reminder, could’ve been embarrassing.
No pun intended, sorry.
