Hi all,

Got my Individual Display Pass for Santa Pod on Sunday :)

Cleaned up B112 from the Deal Show last Sat over the last couple of days and now am all set for Sunday...

Am really looking forward to this show as its one of my favourites without a doubt and the weather, dare I say it, is looking good. I will try to photobomb The Great Unveilings again :wave: :lol:

Anyway if anyone sees me hanging by the Capri please come over and say hello, although I will be walking round the show and watching the 1/4 mile action on and off all day....oh and having a right proper look through the great jumble there too :)

All the best

Nick

Well spotted Jason :applaud:

Yep I met the previous owner of B112 at Beaulieu Simply Ford few yrs back and he told me how he fitted them himself . He made a very good job of them and when I open them at shows they do get some attention from those that know like yourself. Yep not standard spec but I really really like them.

Jason I seen the previous owner again at Deal last Sat. Very nice chap. He wants first refusal to buy B112 back if I ever need to sell !!!

He had a 2.8i at the time he owned B112 and he had to sell one of them. He always regrets selling B112 as his kids grew up in the back seats so lots of fond memories. He still has the original seats in his loft after he fitted the fishnets. He sold the car to a classic Ford Dealer I bought from. Every time he sees it he wants to buy it back !! :lol:

All the best mate

Thanks very much Andrew :)

Am home from work now, B112 is all set to go so I can relax now and look forward to the drive up there at 4.30-5am. Have been getting up for work at 0245 this week so getting up at 4am is like a lie in for me :lol:

The roads will be nice and quiet except for a few old fords maybe !! Weather looking good too so very excited. I really love this show.

Report and pics to follow possibly not till monday. :wave:

Cheers Andrew
