My life consists of several separate worlds – family, work, travel and old cars..
Each of these worlds waxes and wanes and now and again they rub against each other, and sometimes overlap. But just at the moment they are crashing into each other
I made the decision after the election that I would take a step back from the political work and do more on the car – and for a while that worked – but best laid plans….
Progress is being made on ROJ – the engine is happily syphoning money out of my account, the block and heads are at the specialists being rebored and reground – , and though at glacial pace, I am making progress on the body work.
It was brilliant having Angus here for a few days – we had some father/son bonding hanging the driver’s door and adjusting the window frame.
The frame was an absolute bugger – there are five brackets with eleven bolts that each need to be delicately adjusted so that the frame lines up – then there is the stainless window rubber finisher to get exactly right, and the window regulator motor to engage.
Now that the door is done I have to readjust the rear window – and redress the roofline above the door and down the a pillar. Three steps forward and two back.
Two of my worlds overlapped in an unexpected way recently – an IED proof vehicle manufacturer I have dealings with invited me to their Piccadilly showroom opening, at which they had some of their other wares – Lambourgini Huracán being one! Great fun, and excellent champaigne.
