You have too much time on your hands my friend!  I think you need to come over to this side of the pond, have a beer and we should ponder your project :)

I've been doing some calculations, and I've figured that that cup of tea needs to be served in an oil drum, and the sponge needs to be the size of a king sized matress ;D

LOL , id better explain this one for our American friends,

Jam = Fibreglass paste, grp, it comes pre mixed and looks like " preserve " hence the nickname
and secondly it was only with the HELP ( there i said it lol ) of Steve ( MECHANICAL ANIMAL ) that i was able to get this car ( shell ) .
He thought i was going to break it for parts ( the roof etc ) but what he didnt realise is that i hate to see these cars being destroyed and so decided to save it in my own special way. After all , all i can do is improve it ?

Thanks Steve , your ok for a " Northener " LOL
