Thumbs up

Hi Mike, Alfie and I were re-doing the plumbing. Good luck with your project.
My plan is to build a Didi 40cr. I have ordered the study pack for now. I believe there is one in Richards Bay called "From Scratch"? I would love to have a close look at her. I didn't get a chance when I was there. Anyway,I'll look you up next time I'm there.
Cheers,
Alan
