Re: Restoration

Another way of thinking about it, is that colour trends go in cycles. Won't be long before 80's pastels are back in style :lol:

Re: Restoration

Get a socket from your plumbers' merchant.

About colours, and given the amount of effort you have gone to in making this pretty near new perfect, why aren't you looking at the original colour charts?

Re: The LRO Peterborough Show 14-15th September 2019

Nice! Just thought I would link the images :) Interesting repairs to the wing tops. I have noticed that my stage one bonnet is eating through the metal.

Re: New owner

Hi,

Welcome aboard. Yup, post pics.
