I stumbled across this article today

I don't know if it's been flagged before but it's worth some time and a beer.

A real inspiration of a project. When I get overwhelmed with all the "little" projects my car needs, I review one of these segments for inspiration.

Yes that car started out a complete wreck. They purchased a Mk 1 LoCort at the same time, but that split in 2 when they were removing it from the field :roll:

A good inspiration :-)
