Hello all.... again!

It's been a while since I've been here... anyone remember me?


Anyway, I'm back, got a load of new projects on the go, although not car related entirely, including a trike and a bike, and a street/strip Camaro....

Updates on those to come, and I still retain some mostly useless Locost related knowledge too.

So yeah, that's the boring bit... there's also some other more personal news for anyone that might remember me, I look a bit different these days, although I still enjoy the same old stuff

Good to see some familiar names still active

Nothing much changes with me, I'm working for a different company now as Manufacturing Manager. Oddly working with a load of people I used to work with 5+ years ago, but at a different company in different roles. All very interesting.

As for my personal changes... yeah, well, something I should've dealt with 10+ years ago, never did and finally bit the bullet on my 30th Birthday - nearly 3 years ago. I might look a bit different, but I'm basically the same me. Just changed the outside to match the inside

Thanks - to be honest it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Surprising how many people were fully supportive and just basically said - "do what makes you happy"

I lost touch with a few people, but in general all my family, friends and work colleagues were more than supportive. It surprised me....

Glad to hear it We had a 30yr school reunion the other week. One of my former class mates, Andrew, is now Hannah. Everyone was so cool when she arrived and welcomed her with open arms. It seemed totally natural and she had a great laugh along with the rest of us

WOW - How do you find the time ? I'm so jealous of your skill, patiance and engineering ability.

The gender thing is insignificant to me but I appreciate how hard it must of been for you.

Best of luck

Hello again I doubt if you remember buying a copper head gasket for a x flow at Stoneleigh years ago from me and my lad.
On to more mundane matters will you be offering machining services on here again? We have picked up a few turning jobs over the years to help out some people on here but we tend to be pretty busy most weeks so could live with out it and I'm planning to retire soon

Your skills are to be admired, your courage to change to suit yourself more so.

What happened to the Boneville salt racer?

Kind regards
