the new clock face makes such a difference for such a little touch.

One thing that had always irritated me about the car since buying it was the original aeroscreen, it stopped the lines flowing as I would have liked so several weeks ago, after researching what was on offer in the market I plumped for a Carbon NV aeroscreen.

After speaking to Mark, he agreed to make one up for me with a V weave formation with a centre join. Switching it over was relatively easy once the locating bolts had been bonded on in the right place to utilise the original holes on the scuttle.

Very pleased with the results and think it now ties in the carbon on the car pretty successfully.

Elsewhere the car is running perfectly and I'm getting it out to a lot of meets / shows this year - whilst I am working hared to maintain / improve the car it is most definitely a car for driving and absolutely no garage queen

Sunday was a great opportunity to enjoy some Autumn dryness with a run out.

Arranged to meet up with some others (Tiger Sixs, Ultimas, Robin Hoods etc) at the Chocks Away Diner (highly recommended) on the aviation park just outside Chester for a full English.

Run over to the Ponderosa at the top of the Horseshoe Pass for cake and hot chocolate and then I split off, across country to Bala, Lake Vyrnwy and back to Shropshire.

Road from Bala to Lake Vyrnwy was superb, about 12 miles of single track road, which I believe is being used on the Wales Rally GB

Car, as always ran faultlessly but required a serious clean before being put to bed on Sunday evening

Got to really appreciate the comfort offered by the heated seats, made driving in low temps much more comfortable

What I did find amusing was the Ultima GTR simply could not keep up with me across country - all I heard was "My car has too much power and if I used it I would find myself in a ditch"

Was very windy wasn't it - yet despite that and the lack of protection and the rain my son managed to sleep for the last 80 miles back across country

The dampness meant that wheelspin in 4th was pretty much guaranteed
