    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Progress a little slow to date, but having bought the paint I just couldn't help my self and painted under the bonnet in nacre 158. Considering it has been painted in a dusty garage by my self I am very happy with the finish. Still got filler work to do on the rear end and fit the arches but like a child in a sweet shop had to be done.

    Bit the bullet and ordered a set of 7" x 13" Gotti 5t, ready for collection on 31st July. We just happen to be passing the factory in France on our way home from holiday and can collect them. Wife doesn't know about the detour yet!!! Gotti 5t.jpg

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg The visit to Gotti France went well, the wife is still talking to me so can't be that bad and she agreed with the choice of wheel so a bonus. Shop was in a small industrial estate La Roche De La Glun, not much to look at from the outside but quality inside, lovely lady Michelle who spoke great English dealt with us and even when we were evacuated from our camp site in southern France near Monte Carlo due to forest fires she got them finished earlier for collection, fair play.
