  1. Well, after much deep thought I had no option but to sell this Landi back in June. It went to a very good friend who had watched its restoration and had asked for first refusal if I sold Her. Within a few weeks it attended War and Peace with over 1000 miles clocked up in a very short time, glad to say it did my mate proud except for a new 'to fit' starter motor (I passed on to Him the old genuine Lucas one, which was rebuilt and replaced the dire inport one). Since I sold its apeared all over the country usually towing a matching UN Sankey and clocking up more miles and being enjoyed more th

  10. I will add I went last year with CRAB1 (1980 Airportable) with .50cal and 1982 era display. Had booked in as such. On arrival I was shown to pos. one of the best spots on the site infront of the main hanger!!!! I made the point myself I in NO way wanted to distract from the WWII image some folks were prob. expecting to see and moved my self to a back area from all WWII displays out of respect for re-enactors etc. Ended up having a first class weekend and response from all was outstanding. At the end of the day it's up to all of us to have total respect for what other do and enjoy/expand o
  11. Prob. why some of mine are grey/green then!

  17. Someone mentioned white for snow! Pic. taken at the weekend in the snow. A problem or two cropped up during the last couple of weeks. 1. Brake lights not working.... Fault pedal switch, because all brake system new, the free play with the pedal is not great. Adjustment of the switch was critical. Now sorted. 2. Headlight failure...just as I got home in the dark :shocked:....Fault I/R switch, new old stock one. Was prepared, instructions and double male lucar connector behind the switch panel in a poly bag. Job sorted in 5min. Other than that, at mo. no other little niggles.
