Did someone do this before?

When I saw in the news that Elon Musk was going to send his old roadster up on a rocket, I wondered if he had been inspired by this -

Which colour looks best?

I spoke to Terry Cox - he still had the paper work for the last repair he did and it was Nissan leaf green metallic code 719. I've also learnt it has John Wade big valve heads (but no roller rockers) and a mild cam upgrade. :)

Indicators Not Indicating

Is the inhibitor switch functioning as an inhibitor (i.e otherwise indicating it is all connected up) - will the car try to start in Drive? Does the car start on key or a button ? Have you tried swapping the hazard unit with the indicator unit?

Greetings from Leicestershire

Which colour looks best?

I think the question is now which shade of green to get it painted. The colour needs to be an approximation or average of the various shades of l green it appears in photographs in in the last few decades. Shaun told me the last paint colour used on it was a Nissan colour but we don't know the exact...

Which colour looks best?

We are trying to finalise colour choice on HBL (currently with Speedy). The car was originally a light metallic blue but has had several repaints since then and most photographic records on the web and in magazines show it in green. It's also seen in the Don Pither book but in a black and white phot...
