I wish - Rich gave number one (in the garage in the background of one shot) the once over before the NEC last year and it still looks better than 8Ball close up :-)

Quick update - I didn't take 8 ball to curbs, mainly because I was towing the caravan but also because I hadn't sorted the temp issue. Bought another new sender at Curbs and it still over-read. Got a cheap digital display with sender and as suspected, the temp is actually fine. So it seems that QRG are selling the wrong sender? (Must let Nigel know).

So - jobs to do before the show season (definitely before Classic Le Mans 2016):

Fit new temp sender or hardwire digital gauge.
Fit new heater cables and valve to stop feet burning :-)
Fit footwell carpets
Retrim front seats (Andy?)

If we are doing Le Mans in it, I definitely don't need any more heat on my feet. And I would love a comfy passenger seat (please Andy), it's a long way to travel and I don't want to be uncomfortable for that long!!!
