Project KP30: No More White Rap

The KP has finally dried out from the Speedhunters excursion so I figured I should catch up with some of the work it needs.  Firstly, the manifold was cracked so I welded it up and smoothed out all the joins.  I decided to run without the wrap this time; it looks like crap and inevitably changes colour and unwraps itself.  So, at the risk of higher underbonnet temps in traffic or something, I high-temp painted the steel bananas and re-fited them.

On the basis that it took me 3 weeks to get round to this I might get the other bits done by Christmas…ahh, I need more time to play!

18-20-05-12 – Castle Retro Show

Ahh car shows: Roadtrips, friends, camping, beers and BBQ and in this country…rain.  Pretty standard stuff and a couple of weeks back we hit the first big one of our Summer (well, Spring): Castle Retro Show.  In its second year now it’s gotten even bigger, which is a very good thing.  Held in the grounds of Caldicot Castle it’s the perfect spot for a get together with old friends from Uni (in Swansea) and the old regulars still in the Midlands.  Here’s a few snaps of how it played out…

I even won a trophy for having one of the “top 10” cars with the E28…bit of a suprise as there were some really cool cars there and the Beemer is just my daily!

Honorable mentions needs to go to Ryan for making in his MK1: The car was still in bits in the week up to the show but made it with fresh paint and new wheels: Nice one dude!
