Random one Peter, don't suppose there is any news on CRaP going ahead this year or not at the moment....??
Maybe a new date could be best, depends what anyone else wants to do.
If we cant do the normal dates, I am up for rescheduling to the first convenient weekend we can all manage.

Evening folks. I'm on the lookout for a rear axle for my mk3 Capri. Does anyone have one kicking about. Or could anyone suggest an alternative to the atlas axle that might be easier to source.
Which one would you be wanting?
