There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

Of course Peter.

Jobs today include replacing the roll bar bushes and fitting the offside blue carpet to the load bay. I am trimming all edges with the black vinyl, so much nicer than raw carpet edge. Nearside may get a look in tomorrow, either that or I will start on the rear seat squab.

Looks like I may run out of carpet sadly. I bought 3m but it is getting used up quickly.

I thought I had posted this picture... It is of the new load bay carpet. Cut from the roll and edged with black vinyl. The rear seat is just placed there and had not been fitted to the hinges, so that's why you can see them!

That looks good, and much more practical than the tan in the first photo :)
