Alex,

Nice to hear from you on these forums. They still provide much entertainment, inspiration and depth of knowledge so please drop by when you can.

Your window clips went down really well. Would I be allowed to suggest that you write up the manufacturing process etc and someone else with the skills and tools could take them on?? I’m sure you have other things you’d like to concentrate on.

I remember meeting you (and your fabulous Sprint) on a ferry to France years ago heading to LMC.

Hello, Peter, I remember!

I also remember a brief meet-up at the port in Caen? I may be wrong. Were you in a yellow / white sprint that had developed a mobile valve guide?

As i say I could be wrong. LMC was bloody hot though. We did not attend the final day due to temperature.

We trust you are keeping well. Take care..
