The black turbo has an almost identical rev counter so could you make that two please. R6 hasn't arrived yet and R7 looks fine. Of course, I'm looking at them in daylight on cars with flat batteries so I don't know if we might get sparkly backgrounds when they are up and running. If only they were parked in a neat row with easy access to the bonnets :?

It's taken me ages to realise that FOTU is the Festival of the Unexceptional - I even tried googling it! Brain cells are not abundant these days :lol: :lol: :lol: It wasn't til I thought, hang on, isn't Jeff going to that event with us on 31st July that the light bulb came on. :rofl:

My brain always connects the U to Unexpected. (Jeff knows that I will subsequently connect that to the Spanish Inquisition :lol:)

Anyway, there's three complete red/yellow clusters in my loft that need to be dismantled, those have rev counters that never peel. So either I will bring those or send them by mail.
