Nope! Bodywork nothing to do with Paul this time Chris. Dragged it up to "Streetwagens HQ" where we laid into the majority of it. Jeff @ JCWelding squeezed me in for a few finishing touches 'cos he's a proper gent and a welding demon. Still a few things to finish but it made it to Hessich.... just....... which was the aim of the game Very Happy

The most amazing thing was seeing Bens -51 on the road.

I´ve seen it a couple of times here in sweden. I never tought it would hit the road again.

One B-post and both A-posts were cut of by the previous owner. Bengt and Thomas got the A posts for their -50.

cheers dude. Yeh shame about the spun drum but many, many thanks to the BBT back up crew, and Pascal in particular for being a proper gent. Next time I'll make sure we have enough time to do all of our own mechanics!! Still, all was fixed by Saturday night thanks to Dai, Buzz & Kev. Cheers for your efforts chaps........ and to everyone else who was searching the Hessich autojumble for the very-unlikely-to-find-at-hessich late bug rear drums! Cheers Bobby for bringing some spares with him in the DKW too!

WOW! That was the best vintage show the world has ever seen! You can look at a million pictures, but until you go...you'll never know. That was awesome! I'd like to thank everyone that put that show on and especially the TEAM! They all did an incredible job, working long hours and running all over town! There was too much to see and do! You couldn't see it all. I'd also like to thank all the people who showed up with a vehicle! and those that just showed up! EVERYONE! Thanks! I can't wait for 2017!

Here are some pictures I took. Enjoy Very Happy
