Real big spanners at real big prices.

I bought a load of big whitworth spanners over the week end.All made in Englans all,new and all pretty big.
They were heavy,so much so that I cream crackered myself getting them back to the car but well worth going for.These old Imperial spanners are hard to get hold of in the smaller sizes let alone the bigger ones,I bought some huge AF tools a week or so back and some went almost straight away to transport museums.
I bought a load of big sockets as well,shame that so many of these have gone for scrap,the price of new ones in the reall big sizes can be measured in hundreds and probably scrap for just a couple of quid.

Show time for the fairway.

I've been too busy to devote much time to anything away from business or repairs to the building.The last show I went to was with the taxi.Cleaned up and polished it looks half way decent but isn't what most would call a classic car.
I did a bit more on the Rover the other day repairing the passengers side window regulator but thats about it .

Not much to report

I've been busy on the building and just can't find any spare time.
I sprayed the door bottoms on the P5b and topped up the waxoyl (or rather the Eureka Fluid Film) and that was about that.
I went to a couple of car club meetings but in the bad weather most had taken their modern cars so didn't even get any pics.
