Great to hear progress Trevor. What is all that stuff under the head lining - that was never there from manufacture, surely?
No idea! Any thoughts on a suitable replacement welcome........

Tony - that colour looks great. I’m really tempted by it but we should try to bring two cars out next year in different colours!

Our car was originally green, so that influenced us somewhat.

I like blue, I like silver, and now I like green. :D
Could make a nice line-up at Silverstone, or Bledlow or anywhere!

Taken from Dave’s FB post for those not on social media. The near and off side rear width differs to centre. Anyone else picked this up?

You'll also find that the distance between the "A" post at the base of the windscreen pillar and the rear of the car at the rear light is a good 10mm different from one side to the other. I think Danny discovered this when he was rebuilding his race Sabre.

It's actually "Chrysler Mid Fern". So not an Aston Martin colour at all!!

Good to know that there’s consistency in the inconsistencies😀

Not just Reliant with asymmetry.

The Lotus Elite has one door an inch longer than the other!

I believe a lot of “hand built “ very up- market cars are the same you can’t go down to the scrapyard and get a replacement door for your DB 5 cause it won’t fit 😁
