    Won't be scratched for a while, the boss women is clipping my wings for a little while so i get some home reno's completed. Alfie will be laid up for at least a little while, although i have to put his badges, mirrors, lights etc on so he looks pretty much finished from the outside

    Will pop a few pictures up once lights etc are installed but will then probably go a little quiet for a while until i get started again, been a great journey so far, but plenty more to go.
    Cheers folks

    David, the badge was held on with blue tack whilst i was marking correct position and it came off. A little surprised it chipped but it hit right oh the edge of the badge and right on the corner of the bumper so it was obviously meant to be,
