Surely you have multiple photos of it on your drive, at the fuel station or boxes that Imp stuff have been delivered in that you can show us until you start working on it again Dave???? :wink:

Always informative and useful.

Your Singer can't be shown and viewed too many times. Beautiful, lovely car, modifications and improvements.
A credit to you Dave! :)

With the Vusky still very dead ive spent a bit of time sorting something that has annoyed me on the Singer .
One is the missing two tangs for the centre boot trim , i use brass nuts and bolts fitted to these tangs now but with two gone the board was starting to warp .
Anyway ive made and fitted two new tangs and fitted the bolts and nuts like the other three.
Second is the board warping slightly so ive fitted some edging on the vertical sides as this too was warping , basically a bit of thin stainless folded in half and pushed on the edge . :D

When you want 13 inch offset mounted Trico speed blade wiper blades and they cost £50 a pair - chop up some 14 inch which cost half - or even half again as with this pair :)

Done via iphoto on the mac , cost just under £40 posted in hardback , you can have paperback which is cheaper and theres lots of page laypout options.
Given that i used to work at a printers i consider this to be cheap considering the work involved .
Takes about week to arrive once they have the info .

You need one for the Vusky showing how you got it and how much restoration you did on it too, just in case anyone is interested?
