Re: realigning the doors

The mechanical speedo is not too difficult to modify and speedo drive cab...

Re: Fancy being a TV star?

Is that flaking paint on the ally roof? Difficult to tell as, for whatever reason, the ebay pictures have been posted in such a way that you can't click and enlarge them like you normally can.
