It was a bit soggy Sunday morning as it hammered it down on the way to Brooklands. At one point on the M25 I had too look out the side of the car to see where the lanes where! The wipers work fine, on the outside of the car. Masses of spray meant the inside of the screen was wetter than the outside.
On arrival at Brooklands is lighted up and we had a bit of time to dry out before leaving before following the route book to Brighton which was then nice and sunny.
On minor issue with car is that we ended up with a fish bowl in each door – some drain holes required!
Here are some photos:

A very rare sight to see!

It was the Sportsters first year at Stoneleigh. It nearly didn’t happen because of the weather. We set off around 10:30 in the rain getting to Stoneleigh some time after 12:00. It was good to meet up with the people from Madabout-kitcars and the Marlin Owners club.

It was another good day out at Stoneleigh today! It was great to meet up with all the builders from the madabout-kitcars again this year – next year we’ll all be in our cars I hope! 😀
Lots of pictures to take a look at here
Also picked up from parts from the SVC stand (nice chap I bought the fog/reverse and indicators gave me a discount!) Also got some new head lamps – these use standard H4 type bulbs!
Stoneleigh national car show 2006 was on this week end, was a very good day out with lots of opportunity to pickup ideas and tips from other Sportster builders! We also picked up out full front windscreen and returned the build stands to Marlin.
Lots of pictures from the event
