Good morning all. I thought i had better point out that based on the expected announcement due tomorrow, up to six individuals can meet up in an outdoor setting, and that we are currently expecting eight. Thoughts please, rob.

A good point, I can drop out if you think the numbers could be a problem as it would most likely be a flying visit anyway.

There is nothing wrong with calling in to tesco on your way thru for a sandwich for dinner while you go about your business.
Personally, i will be on my way home after visiting my mother,and will call in Ellesmere to do some essential shopping, wouldn't it be fortuitous if i happened to run into an rx8 meet of six people at the same time,rob. ;)

First day back in the UK thought I would make the little car ready for the Ellesmere trip, so called an employee to come give me a hand and we replaced the front wings and bumper back to a red colour
Red wings and bumper 02.jpg
and then we stripped one of the other MX5s and created a new interior.

Refurbed alloys are being added tomorrow.
Now all it needs is a full respray, some decent audio, new soft-top, and engine upgrade and she will be a fine town car.

Should make progress on the London streets really easy now.

Might bring this down to the meet if I can change the tyres in time.

Yup it is, very cozy driver's section but one can have a disco in the back.
Spent day driving around using the bus lanes, very satisfying.

I think that your first paying customers may be John and Ollie, i don't know how this relates to guidelines though.

Confused! Is that just “not coming” or you are coming but “not coming to make you all look good!”
