2011 Blog

Not much progress to report in 2011, because I had to neglect the Regal to work on my Bristol LL5G.  There are only so many hours in the day.

However it was very pleasing to see headlamps connected and working.

I had sent the radiator cowl to be rechromed over a year ago, but the company never managed to get it done, despite promising to install new and larger tanks "when time permitted".  Eventually I gave up with them, collected it and found another company - Forge-Services - situated in Devizes, that did an excellent job.  It was expensive, but the radiator is a key part of any restoration, and needs to shine in every sense.

So I was at last able to marry the "new" cowl to the rebuilt radiator fins.  It should look excellent when fitted.
