I'm thinking about adding a stitch on leather cover to mine as the original rim is so thin compared to modern car wheels.

Probably why driving gloves were popular 'in the day' :wink:

Well, I picked up the S4 this morning with a fab trouble free 50+ mile drive home in beautiful weather.it's been 20 years since the last and 40 since the first, why did I wait so long? I was soon back in the saddle and loved every minute...this car has only covered 5000 miles in the last 12 years...That's going to change for the better now :D
I've spent all afternoon cleaning/polishing fluid checks etc. and finished the day with another run out....perfect!!

Hope to meet up with some of you guys this year
