    Nice work. I am sure the East Germans makers even in their wildest dreams would not have thought that a Trabant could look that good.

    I learn something new every day.the joys(or not) of specialising in nothing,is that work is very varied and apart from the regular big builds i dont know whats going to turn up.

    The next couple of weeks is typical here.

    I have a big build im doing.

    A truck in for axle narrowing,four link,exhaust,brakes,wiring

    Buggy here for fitting a big bike engine and a few other bits.

    Mini in for fitting the jag v8 and sort out steering.

    Front suspension to make for a pop.

    Rear 4 bars to make for a e type kit car

    Custom front A arms to make for a gilburn invader.

    Then a 38 coupe in for an exhaust


    Bit of variety there.

    It was the same in my business, sole trader renovating old country cottages, never two days the same or two jobs the same. Enjoyed every minute of it, kept the brain flexible that's for sure.
