Seems to be the season for accidents, a tired driver got me just before Xmas. Concentrates the mind when you see a car coming out of an oncoming line of traffic into your lane at 60 mph...... :shock:

Only damage apart from the car was to my clothes and wallet so could've been worse.

I also fitted a silve powder coated rocker cover cover in place of the old flakey black one that was on there

Glad to hear the straight-six is running well. Had the Sabre Six out on Jan 1 and it seemed better than usual - damp atmosphere?

Cheers Phil! It had to go there as all the spaces were taken up by Jap crap this morning. I approved of one of them though

Jeeez... this SE4 just blows me away! I'm sure no one is terribly bothered about what I think, but for what it's worth, I reckon this is the best looking SE4 I've aver seen...
The colour, the painted wires and the overall condition. Perfectly executed. :-P

Cheers Anders! It'll be a bit better soon too, as it's halfway through an interior replacement.

What can I say, there was a long straight road and not much in front of me :D
