    Hello everyone and thank you, yes I know Mark from work but I'm based more around Cambridge. Not sure if I should admit this but I do have a garden railway although it is quite small, not the sort of thing you could ride on.. The Z3 is an M44 from 1997 with about 72k on it, a previous owner fitted it out with green leather seats and inserts but otherwise its stock (complete with pepperpots). I try to use it most weekends and summer evenings so it does get dirty and wet (sorry Mark :D ), but I try to keep it looking nice as well as doing as many of the easier mechanical bits myself (just changed the rear shocks and mounts).
    I'll try and get over to Duxford if I get chance, it'll be nice to meet everyone.

    cheers
    Keith

    A warm welcome from me too!

    Lovely looking Zed, and seems pretty much original too.

    Thanks for the replies and comments everyone, I particularly wanted the pepperpots for a more retro look (cheaper tyres too lol). Claybar is at the ready and waiting for a warm day or three, haven't used one before so any advice would be welcome, I usually just stick with a sponge and leather, sorry! I've also got the roof to clean and colour once the decorating is finished #:-s


    cheers

    Would be good if you could make it to Duxford, just add a post on the Duxford thread if you are able to make it. :)

    Your Zed looks great, Keith, very shiney, what colour green is it?
