Got her back safety tucked away in garage.

Can't wait to get the final bits done before mot

Roll bar and seat belts fitted (anyone who knows of someone who can do a decent, inexpensive roll bar, please get in touch)
New windscreen

Then the customising and tinkering begins!

Hi all,

Bit of an update...

Buggy is booked in for rollbar this Thursday, when that's done, seatbelts will need to be done.
Then it's just a case of replacing the windscreen and asking Keith to kindly give her a pre-mot tune up.

HOWEVER...

I must say that things have not progressed as quickly as I'd like, as I now need to move from my house into a bungalow as I fell when using my stairlift last week.

Just means that I've got a bit more on my plate, but the buggy is almost done.

HI ALL

BIT OF AN UPDATE... QUITE A BIG ONE ACTUALLY

Over the winter I moved into an adapted bungalow in Evesham which has helped me greatly.
I have not had any time to spend on the buggy, but it is safely tucked up at present thanks to Eddie the worlds best MOT guy.

In next few weeks it will be MOT'd and will be ready for the great British summer. Updates and pictures to follow soon.

Big thanks to Keith, Andy and Eddie. Youve all been a great help, without your help the buggy wouldn't have been built for some time.

Cheers

I think that's actually something I could work toward without too many issues.

Will keep you up to speed.

Hope you're keeping well.

Yay well done mate. See you on the road some time.
I'm in my buggy,
It's raining,
I really don't care.

Well thatss good news.

Ed  says you had a shift coupling failure as the plastic fell apart and the carb blocked up where it has stood again driving home, the sister in law passed you broken down being recovered.

sunday is stratford race course so have a look in the events listings.
