Paisley Carfest 2018

Paisley Carfest takes place on Saturday 16th June 2018.

Looking to get a few cars along as this year it doesn't clash with Moffat, which is good.

Will post further details when I get them. Anyone interested let me / Ian Sinclair know for numbers.

Imp Ecosse 2017

Due to a family commitment, I have to rearrange accommodation for Imp Ecosse 2017.

I made a booking with the hotel for the weekend but now cannot make the full event. Therefore, before I cancel the booking, is anyone interested in taking it over?

Looking foR a one off garage sticker for the rear hatch of my Caledonian, similar to the one on OAP. It would be a one off unless anyone else requires a Goudies of Paisley Chrysler sticker. Any ideas where I can get them made? Tried a couple of places but so far no success.

Re: OAW 133P Restoration

Waxoyl.

The wheels are powder coated and lacquered. Not too worried about scraping the paint as they would do that anyway. But hopefully being power coated and lacquered (in error, they were only supposed to be powder coated!) they will be fine.
