    Hi'ya buddy !! happy to find you alive and well!!....

    Anyone wants to know who drove me "nuts" with the development of the seat lift fittings.... yes, Zedonist was responsible... his input was fantastic in terms of steel quality, torque requirements with multiple mating surfaces etc etc... :)

    I have just finished fitting one of Barry's new design armrests. The design and build quality is second to none, and he was happy to help personalise the armrest to my desired specification - by polishing all the metal parts and finding a quality piece of leather, in a near match colour that I could recolour easily.

    Nice work all round David...I've watched you put in so many hours to achieve these great results...and from what you've told me, there's more to come. I think your car looks really good and quite unique.;)

    Hi,
    Left a message for Southernboy the other day - no reply as yet.
    Is this supplier no longer offering parts?

    I am interested in a pair of the silver seat belt guides.
    Do you know what the total price including shipping to Vancouver BC may be.
    Thank you for your time.
