just a little addition to my 'online car diary' as this seems to have turned in to,
a few weeks ago was selected to display as part of the top 25 at Castle Combe for the Spring action day, I had only entered for a bit of a joke as there was absolutely no chance of being picked out of all of these cars.. Or so I thought!

Quietly worked away in the unit trying to get her nice and pretty and on the Wednesday had my front bumper and bonnet taken away for respray as I was unable to get this booked in any time before and there were flaws that had to be sorted, gremlins from the initial spray where filler had decided to rear up and say hello!
Got that back on Thursday evening and duly fitted to the car, managed to refine slightly in the very limited time i had, but needs to be done properly just had to lose some of the swirls and holograms from the mopping! car was finally back together and went for road test at lunchtime Friday and set off at about 3pm.

Anyway onto the show, a 3 hour drive in not great weather on the Friday and stopped at a lovely B&B (the evening was so totally surreal I'm not even going to go there in this post but safe to say i A: Don't belong in posh hotel restaurants in a hoody trainers and jeans
and B: I am a total snowflake in strange places when someone's trying to kick a door down to get in the place I'm overnighting lol!!

Eventually arrived at the showground after a long wait to get into the gates and onto my named pitch looked at the car and thought ooooh <insert chosen word here>

no water close that i could see so did the best I could which involved around 20 MF cloths.
Long and short of it I wasn't in the top 3, and to be totally expected the winners as well as the other cars there were immense, certain people there pushed their cars further forward than others to gain limelight which was a bit off but so be it if that's what they wish to do!
The team very kindly at the end of the show let me see my scores and was told that from the judging I'd placed 9th overall- 9TH!!! I made the top 10! Engine bay really let me down but it's an old car, a budget build and is going to take time to get to top standard but the rest of my scores were 17/18 out of 20.
First time in something like this so stoked in an understatement

That's a brilliant result, Kelly. Thoroughly deserved, as it's a real credit to you.

Soooooooo, you really need to start a thread in the off topic and tell us all about the overnight drama. Sounds interesting to say the least lol.
