I can only Eco what others have said Richard. Well done for your dogged determination and resilience over a very long 4 years I think you said.
Now enjoy the new toy.

Well it been a year that the Locost broke free of the garage so it was about time I bit the bullet and put some stickers back on, thankfully donated by SKCC members and still missing 2011 tour.
Then today was mot time and an opportunity for original build partner and previous owner of the Robin Hood Dave (the man not the hood ) to try and see if he found the seating position comfy for the kent tour and as I think he is the first to drive the car any distance to get his option as he drove us to snodhurst today.
I bombarderd him with changes to be aware off especially the lack of a servo prior to the off.
Dave donned his crash hat for both directions with me in my snood and reports no head buffering that I experience so I really should give that a go.
Car passed all good and managed to get home under a grey sky and zero cleaning required.
