Petes are the indvidual lamps made by hella fitted to his red sabre but cowled in. Jamies old ss1 has the fiat coupe lights fitted. Jamies was previosly owned by Stew B (creator of my monster sabre) and had Jag XKR lights modded to fit

I was thinking I was lucky Chris 'speaka da English' so well, as he lives in a foreign country, but given your last post it seems hes not the only one who lives somewhere they don't speak English ;-) ive no clue what you just said :lol:

I re-installed the printer/scanner from Canon's official site.
The scanner woke up for about a week and then decided to hibernate so I haven't got much further.
I think it's the scanner driver because the printer part works perfectly.
I may have to uninstall it all and start again.

Oh, and Brian's english is perfectly comprehensible to normal, sorry I mean northern people ...

Scanner fixed at last!

Now I can get down to scanning the mountain of waiting material including (but not only) the Swiss SSabre dossier.
I've done the first 30-odd, some are not brilliant because the 'originals' are only photocopies.
The first three and most interesting are the restyling photos.
The coupé was created on computer nearly 20 years ago and the image I have is very small so the quality is crap.
But the design is superb, much prettier than a TVR Tasmin which it slightly resembles from the rear.
What a pity it was never made ...

The images are all on the site and can be downloaded in larger format (you'll have to search several headings).
