Project Roadster: The smell of leather and old people

Not a massive update really. It was MOT time so I did a couple of bits to it (new tyres, rear callipers) and it passed first time which is a bonus. Other than that I have just been racking up the miles and enjoying the sunshine.

I did pick up an old 70’s Astrali steering wheel from the auto Jumble at Race Retro for £8 thinking it would be good for the KP. When I got it home it had a Hyundai Pony boss on it. Before giving up (or starting cutting it about) I decided to offer it up to the Roadster and it fit!

It does have a centre cap but I’ve not got round to that yet and it looks kinda cool without it. It’s a bit smaller than the Momo it replaces so I don’t think it will be as good for doing skids with. We shall see. The only other downside is it smells of old people which it a fairly acquired taste!

Because I had the camera out (and because I am a lyfestlin’ whore) I took a couple pics of my new kicks and watch:

Mmmm fresh DCs

Race Retro 12 to 15-05-09

Just got in from Race Retro after helping pack up the Retro Cars stand. What can I say, epic weekend with the guy’s from Unity Media as well as good times meeting up with good friends and people i’d not seen for ages.

Check out my preview HERE

Grabbed this quick shot as I was leaving. Nice company: Datsun 240 rally car and a Benetton F1 car: That’s just how I roll ha ha!

As soon as I go through the 300 pics I have taken I’ll throw some more up!

Ultimate Dubs 08-03-09

Last weekend I took a drive over to Telford to check out Ultimate Dubs. It’s no secret that I love a nice water pumper and have an unhealthy fetish for stance and fitment. Well, this place had it all! Check out my coverage on RSM HERE

Here are a few of my favourite cars and pics I shot for RSM:

Paperwork

I’m sure you have noticed things have been pretty quiet here recently. Well, that’s mainly due to the normal stuff stopping me playing: work, life, you know…but, most recently, moving house!

Digging through all my stuff for the move I found my KP folder along with all the original paperwork for the car, check it out:

Owners Manual:

Service book:

and the origional bill of sale:

How cool is that?! It’s scary to think I’m 24 and on the 7th of April my car will be 33! Pass the cake!
