I was going to say surely your arrival would have been discreet and orderly with drivers like Vicky, Dave C and Vanessa but then I realised you had the Ragley Hall reigning champion of noisy back ends - Oojamaflip - so local residents would not be spared !

The summerhouse, 200yds from my house, I would have come for a beer, or you could have come for a sneaky peek at the Swiss buggy and a big pot of tea.........

Yes, he wasn’t happy at being woken up - threatened to come back later & vandalise it >:(

I have been thinking about some form of immobiliser...perhaps I need to think faster!

A simple earth wire from the cb side of the coil to earth with a bulb in circuit will stop them hot wiring it as it stops the points circuit from working. A battery master switch is easily overridden by a wire from battery pos to the coil as it will bump start. Mechanical locks are a deterrent.

Halfords one I have is decent. Melts pretty easy if you dont give the exhausts time to cool down enough but I cant really fault it on that.

'...like the drunk I found sleeping in my buggy at 7am on Saturday morning! '

Blimey that must have been an alarming sight. If you got away without them being sick in your buggy you have done well.

I wonder what 'booby traps' or anti drunk devices would be legal and effective ?

You certainly need to ensure someone cannot easily hot wire your buggy if its parked on the street.

Thanks guys - waterproof small car cover purchased! 8)

I hope it may deter people like the drunk I found sleeping in my buggy at 7am on Saturday morning!

The homemade cover on there failed to keep him out!

Any Kevlar versions?? ;D

The modifications to the rear end of the body look great, any idea who did them?

I too think it looks really good. Unfortunately I do not know who modified the rear. It was done many years ago before I or the previous owner owned it.
I have changed the rear lights with NOS Lucas lights as I think the 2 each side looks really good.
