Hi everyone, happy New Year! I can't believe my last post was way back in September, a lot has happened since then to keep me busy, mostly this little fella which we got towards the end of September... Frank or 'Lemon Brain' as he's affectionately known has taken up a fair amount of our time, but has been worth it. He's an Old Tyme Bulldog, a cross between an American Bulldog, Bull Mastiff and Pit Bull. He's now almost 6 months old and a great companion... We came over in November to travel the Pacific Highway, starting in San Francisco and taking in the coastal route down to LA, crossing to Vegas and heading back across country to fly back out of San Francisco. Plenty of miles and plenty of great memories, we even had the weather, remember that heat wave..! Christmas has been and gone, as has new year, progress on the car has been slow but I did manage to make some minor progress towards getting the car ready for the road. I now have legal UK plates and a spare - just in case... Other progress has included putting a few more hours on the engine and getting the fans set up, but now I need to focus on those last few jobs to get her on the road. I need to fill and bleed the brakes, install the driveshaft, connect the handbrake cables, fit the washer hose, fit the kickdown cable... Only small jobs but those are the ones which take time. I best make a start!
