    Snow stopped Play.

    My new toy was supposed to be delivered yesterday . Unfortunatly the snow around
    Tyne & Wear meant it cant be delivered to Weymouth untill tomorow morning. Have even purchased a monster chammy. Theres no justice any more. A mans toy , is a mans toy after all.
    Cant get hold of a few pieces of wiring loom for my Nova Kit car, that in turn means i cant fit the new cylinder head onto the rover twin cam engine whitch is in turn bolted up to a 1971 chassis & gearbox.

    Ah well

    Thanks HugoBoss.

    Arrived today, off loaded onto drive way , paid the driver , and collected the documents & "key ".

    Started first time , no throttle, instantly remembered the gentle hiss of the engine running from Many years ago. Couldnt take it for a ride, No Insurance. Too much to look at first.
    Well pleased with the car, will have great fun with it.

    Terry

    bit of advice needed. the car only came with one Door/ignition key and 2 on/off fobs. whats the best deal to get a 2nd door/ignition key. I saw some on Ebay 2 button remote key case. Non OEM replacment key, free cutting to code . £13.99.
    Allso no key for the boot, or the storage space behind the seats. Again wheres the best place to get them from.

    Cheers Terry
