    Very nice indeed! You needed to call it "for the R10 fans" though. Just saying

    And for one that's no where near as nice, but a bit better than John's restorers dream ....

    My father's R10 after it's been sitting in the backyard for about 6 years.

    A fresh battery and a squirt of fuel and started straight away.

    Shouldn't be too long now Phil before Clive's back on the road again

    He desperately needs a respray though. The paint wasn't great when I bought the little fella back in 03 and one winter while we were building our house it had to be outside in the weather. I used a tarp but I think that made it worse keeping the damp between the tarp and the paint .
    cheers,

    John

    Yes I've warned people about using tarps. Most of them are only good for keeping dust off a car parked in a clean dry shed. There not weather proof.

    The next worst is under a tree, or next to a shed.
    They are better off in the sun where they can breath and dry, then covered up or sheltered where the damp can affect the metal. Of course in the sun, there is more damage to the interior though.

    I have done the same and in even less than 12 months. When I pulled the tarps found the rooves were rusty and soaked with sweat. It hadn't rained for quite some time. The heat under the tarp must evaporate moisture out of the ground which then rises and cannot get out. My neighbour had covers on his cars that breathed, didn't keep the rain out but did keep the sun off.
