    My younger son & I took a little trip out to the the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby last Saturday for a photo shoot with the Lancaster bomber NX611 "Just Jane".

    This seems to be quite a common theme with people who spend ages restoring / building cars! Maybe the fun and interest is all in the building and that's what you love doing. The OH thinks I'll be the same with the Stratos and once it's built I'll not want to use it. A couple of fellow LB builders have sold very soon after completion. Either way someone will get an amazing car Jonny!

    If you had raised the missing calendar in 2014 we would have sorted it for you. Certainly they all went out as its a massive task getting them all ready for posting and I did it that year so I know just how long it took! It's actually an eye opener when you send so much large mail out how much of it actually goes missing en route! For some history, when I started MLOC it was all run from my own pocket, which became unsustainable over time. We then switched to a donation model which worked well to start with but the donations went away after the initial flurry. We then moved to advertisers to keep the site running which went well but generally internet advertising for banners seems to be on the demise with less people wanting to do so year on year. In the mean time to become part of the MSA and have their insurances for events we needed to have MLOC as a limited company, the MSA rules mean we need to have members or we are not able to join them, thus the paid member was started. Personally I would prefer not to have paid members as I prefer to let everyone have full access to the site and only rely on advertisers to keep the site running. That's why there are limited member benefits as I set it up originally so that everyone could post as many photos as they wanted or send as many messages as they wanted for example, not just paid up members as other sites do. The price has been kept low at Β£1 a month for that reason. In terms of money made on previous years from the members signing up its pretty minimal once we have paid out for the calendars and postage which keep increasing in price every year. The main reason for membership is to allow us to keep the MSA membership going and it does also help contribute to the sites finances, all time and effort is given for free by everyone so no one is taking any money personally from the site, no mileage expenses or anything like that. More recently now that we have equipment purchased the LITP events have been making money and thus enabled us to allow donations to charity after we have made a small profit towards running MLOC.

    It was the injectors!!! 😁 I swapped over the injectors from my sport 190 and it fired up on the second press of the starter button! To say I’m happy is an understatement. Thanks for your help and suggestions chaps......now I can start putting it back together again

    Or just take it to unit 4 for a service and tell Gav there is no rush πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Reckon you could get 6 months free storage !

    Congrats buddy... Glad I could help I can't wait to see it at the weekend. You will love it, there really isn't anything else that feels like a seven. Can't wait to get another.. It wasn't because of me... I heard his inspiration was that Unit 4 garage queen... At least the storage fees are cheaper at home Scatty

    Gav had an Evora in when mine went in for service last year and he shared with me his dismay at how much shredded rubber was stuck to the body - including on the roof!! The owner had apparently taken it to Spa or the Neverbeenring or some such and given it plenty of large - he's a member on here but i shan't give away his name. He is 'fantastic' though. πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

    So it is....cheers Dean. Had a fantastic day out in it on Saturday at Lotus 70. Left at 4.30am, pitch dark, for a convoy with Paul (smithpaulg) and a spot of breakfast, through the fog east of Leicester and the sun rising through it, and even got stuck behind a turnip lorry in Norfolk - how apt. It was great until we realised turnips were falling off the back A quick clean at Hethel to restore the 'Dave' shine was in order - even Dean borrowed my stuff to clean his car (you sure you didn't get a bang on the head recently, Dean......?) We couldn't take part in the big parade on the test track at the end, due to the 'club' cars being parked in the staff car park - H&S wouldn't allow us through to the track. Other than that it was a great day and the car was flawless - which always helps After watching some of the parade we got back to the car and found Henry Catchpole (Evo mag etc) doing a video feature on the car. Not sure if/when that will be published somewhere but it was pretty cool regardless. A few more pics here, including one of my brother at the end of a long day (and before a long and spirited drive home). Adrian's S160 looking mega.....!

    Thanks all, It's good to be back. Beleive it or not I've not started on it yet... That's not to say the clams won't come off over winter and it get a proper going over. I just have to do it after bedtime now I was about to take the monstrosity of a steering wheel off and put this little beauty back on

    About time. Hope it is as described, but you have probably spent the last few months researching the car in advance anyway. Lots of photo's please.

    I recommend Gav at unit 4. Been taking my car there the last 4 years. I live in Congleton and travel there. He definitely knows his stuff

    Depends what your usage is. If you re not doing trackdays or even just the odd one i would put AD08r or ZZS on. Buy a set. At 870 miles per year they should last about 15 or 20 years.
