Nice pics Al
The one Leah took is just before the Craven arms at Appletreewick.
You can just see the punters sitting outside as we are about to pass.

Today I received a parcel from jacksprat, of this parish, containing 2 front indicator clusters. We met at Pateley Bridge and he noticed Matilda had lost one of hers. It happened he had the wrong set for his 1958 Traveller rebuild and kindly offered to send them to me.

I used the lenses and inner rubber gaskets to get Matilda winking again. Thanks jacksprat aka Roger. ;)

Amazing how helpful everyone is - what I love about being involved with such a car group - another excellent pic of Matilda too - you should think of doing that professionally :raz:

For a while now Matilda has had a bit of an oil leak. She wasn't smoking but oil was getting out from somewhere. Also she has not been consistently up to power. A new head gasket was a possible solution.

Thanks to MickEssex, who popped over on Saturday afternoon, Matilda got her new head gasket.

Before the head was changed we ran a compression test:

155 145 145 170

Now she reads:

168 172 168 169

Much better.

Thanks Mick... ;)

Been out enjoying all the very hot weather today. Popped down to Lullingstone Castle for a photo shoot with Matilda. Trying to get her and the castle onto the front cover of the Simply Sevenoaks magazine. This year's theme is Vintage Sevenoaks. Thought this would fit the bill:

I took the shot whilst driving. My phone triggered the camera via wifi. Simples... ;)
