    "nauli"

    As of lunch time your head came out and made all the water pump block channel. All that is needed is to glue and screw and the head mods have started.

Fitted a mounting bracket for a micro switch as "RobinT" did with his Caravell and "Bob's your Aunty".
    Now I have modern working electric washers and a button that looks original, How Nice is That ???? Ray
    Well, on the theme of "Run Modern", I'd recommend buying modern jets that just flood the windscreen with water. Mine might be Toyota but I can't quite remember. Brilliant - fitted to the bonnet grill as a pair. I'll check whether I have a spare pair for you!

    Careful Guys,

    I have an appetite for the green R10 at the moment ........

    "Shoji" I am waiting for your crank to come back to do the mockup for final measuring.
    And "nauli's" crank is away being ground,
    And both are being balanced........

    So I do what I want to do.......... May even do some more on the white R10, or even the Caravelle.......

    You all piling up on me, ........ I feel a Green R10 will be worked on over a long weekend, maybe even a week, at this rate.

    Grenouille Vert
    Is in the process of a respray, after a bit of body refinement.

    As well as some added accessories.
    I have just finished putting back together and rebuilding a set of wheels for the car,

    Yes the "Green" is mainly being use as a parts storage for GTA parts at the moment, but it is progressing.

    Are the wheels a hint to a body colour change or are we staying green?

    I can attest to careful work and thorough progress. Ray doesn't need supervision but he might appreciate witnesses to the systematic approach here! It'll be quite 'stand out' when finished.
