Nothing at the moment.....it's at the garage having rear suspension bits done coz I havent had the time to do it myself and it's MOT. Front suspension I did do over the winter... Unfortunately the garage seems to be plodding along with it, they have had it for 2 weeks now and don't seemed to have done much.....frustrating as I have a few little jobs I could be getting on with in the mean time.....

I had two Heralds out Saturday, the Estate and the red conv.  The wife and I drove them about 60 miles to a from a photo shoot for the local upcomming car show next month.  First time out since November.  Both did fine.  Got some more parts for the blue conv that I am restoring.  Back to work on the blue one soon.

I booted mine to try and stay in front a red Herald convertible between Avening and Tetbury yesterday.
The Herald was being driven in a spirited manner by a couple* from a more senior age group.
I was stuck behind a bus.





*(OK, only he was driving, but she was cheering him on).


Do not touch the glass. Do not approach the glass. You pass him nothing but soft paper - no pencils or pens. No staples or paperclips in his paper. Use the sliding food carrier, no exceptions. If he attempts to pass you anything, do not accept it. Do you understand me?

Mine was filthy from driving in the rain so I washed it.

Then I tried to fix the bonnet alignment but I think I made it worse.

Avoided it. I'm playing another gig / concert this evening and so can't risk oily hands... it looks bad... even after hours of scrubbing! Tomorrow I've to repair rusty bits on the bulkhead.


If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.
