Hi All,
It was nice to meet some of you again and to meet others for the first time. You really are a good bunch and I loved the setup and the day. Thanks Les / Caroline for setting it all up.

Here are some snaps I took on the phone. Will stick up some videos when I get time to download them from the action cam.

Great photos! :clap:

 

I particularly like this one:

 

post-5732-0-42498600-1568551652.jpg

 

The Datsun is closer yet looks smaller :lol:

 

I took a lot of time having a proper good look at the underside of the Datsun because, whilst I've been under it for many hours, my face has only been a few inches from it.  It was great to walk under and hang off the suspension, etc. to check it all out.  I also took lots of pictures from different angles for future reference - it's so much easier finding a photo of a particular bit then crawling under the car to check it out.

 

Other than a thorough check over, I changed the engine oil and filter, re-torqued my front wheel bearings, found an issue with the front driver side strut (which I am addressing now), made a reasonable attempt at adjusting the exhaust to stop it hitting the bodywork at certain times, measured some fuel tank breather pipes (that need changing this winter), and attempted to fix my speedo drive (this wasn't a permanent fix because I need to file a new flat edge on it, but at least I know it's possible).  I have a great old time!

 

On a different subject, are there any red squirrels around the site?  I could have sworn I saw one on a tree as I was slowing for a speed ramp just before entering the car park!

We definitely have squirrels.  They live in the trees around the edge of the site.  I can't say though if they are Red or Grey.  I will have abetter look.

Whilst waiting for Les to open up before everyone arrived I saw one that had the body shape of a grey but a hint of red in its coat. There are also black ones in Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire whose evolution is being studied by the local uni ARU

Really sorry I couldn't make it to this - and absolutely humblest apologies for not letting you know - unforgivable. I've had a fair bit going on lately, so I've been preoccupied - but everything's ok. Hope to be back in the mix again soon.
