    Not quite what I had visualised when you mentioned it Dean......but intersting none the less. Win

    Luxurious? Yes! It has air-con. Not sure why it would need it though given all those extra air-vents on each corner.

    Sounds like it's going to be an interesting project Dean :D Amazing it started after 7 years!

    That blue bugeye in the background picture 8, looks like it hasn't been started for some time as well.

    No it's not mine Olly. It's for one of Gaylord's customers.
    Stripping it completely :confused:
    Not quite what I expected, but a bit of history nontheless :cheers:
    The "dust" on the Bugeye is frost Errol. Not something you will be familiar with Win FYI I took that pic at midday & it was still freezing.
