Re: Update on Skip

When I'm in the UK I should not visit 480 owners, all of them have sold their 480 now! OK, it was only you :lol: It's good to see the car has passed on to a new enthusiast anyway! But why were you selling in the first place? Lack of garage space? Well, tbh I was looking at importing a Renault Twing...

Re: Skip

DS World be good but you get no change for £15K.

My project is smaller and fairly straightforward and I would be missing Skip but this is where funds are tied up. £3.5 is just acquisition cost plus what was spent to bring it right up there :)

Re: Skip

Well, I am not too happy about it so I could not be asked to detail everything. Subconsciously I want to keep Skip :)

I am still in 2 minds so I am not really pushing toooo hard.

Re: Blinky 51/480

Just in case, of part 16 is beyond repair it can be by-passed without side effect. Mine was just too rusty to be saved.

No, not me unfortunately!

Off to Lincoln in the 480 tomorrow if I can find the time to fit replacement driver's window winder before hand. Fingers crossed I see a 480 on the way!
If not on the way you will for sure when you get there :)

Re: Taking Skip there tomorrow

Did not know there will be one and I was only made aware of this event a couple of hours ago. Since it is near me, that it will be sunny and the wind will be blowing in the right direction I can take Skip out if the garage.
