Steve, I just had a great idea!!!!

Instead of a hood bird, you should just get a decal of the Hoff on there in his leathers!!!
I'm sure you have several pics to choose from!!

Well a few more pics and NO HOFF.

Heres the tailights " mocked in ", they are wired but not to the loom as i havent built the loom yet.



Yep the car is full of it, but im doing all the work in my back garden so its a 2nd shed!

More Tea and a childs cup which gave me an idea....







Not finished but.......



Mechanical Animal gave me a drivers door, which was fantastic as i didnt have one, but it needed a bit of work, not a problem.....







So while i was working on that my 2 youngest children were bugging me for something to do, so i thought id let them sand down the front nose cone..... that had a few suprises in it too !





Never a dull moment !

Well bigger me !

That was how i got it, it had been stored for over 20 years, i had no use for it as i flush fit my windows.

Im glad it went to a good home, that was a while ago though.

Its a rare bit of kit.
