BBQ will be outside the club house on Fri night , Jazzy has kindly said he will bring the coals but we ALL need to  fetch something to throw on it, PS, Barman Dave may well open the bar for us and you need to wear something made out of plastic!
On the subject of the barmen, they do it out of love for us lot so if you can afford it please buy Harry or Dave a drink.

I'm going but hopefully staying in the pits, my mate is racing his rusty old van. Will ask how much hassle it may be as will be towing. Will it be under cover all weekend? Will speak to you at swanage.

Hi, looking forward to Swanage12 this year (couldnít make last one). Certainly up for Saturday & Sunday with my partner Leanne. So 1 Buggy & 1 camper van. Possibly 4 breakfasts. Only horrendous weather to keep us away.
Sounds like a great laugh!
Colin.

Wouldn`t it be easier in the long run to change the wheels to match the PCD rather than drilling and studding discs?
Yes" but in the same way If I had used a stock rolling pan it would now be on the road" :D and it would still look the same as any other buggy""  I do have a slip from years ago for wheels outside of the body line :D,, and to get 10" and 7" slots in the body line is hard"" I can fit 5or6" slots on the front but I like to have tyres and front brakes that work not slide or lock up,,, As I'm going low the wheels have got to sit in the body line any way,,, I'm in no rush and I get more out of building them and I do driving or going to shows,,I had an mk1 as a daily drive for years, I had years of going to events and being lift to put up club gazebos etc why the show queens prop the bar up and talking boll...s,,

I always fit the iron under in the channel or if needs be remove the outer down lip, then you can fit riv nuts into the top of the box to secure the body, roll cage needs spacer tubes and long bolts then though. but it keeps the pan in original dimensions.
I put the box seam at the bottom as was going to us m10 rivnuts I used the GP dimensions as I will not be swapping chassis and unlikely it will fit any other buggy as it would need a flat rear boot! floor
