Tell you what, your presenting style on these videos is really engaging and you're a natural both with the camera and with the high grade restoration work we see in the clips.
Keep up the good work please.

Fuzz, if you're watching this fella's work and thinking the same, how about giving him a job on the next series of Car SOS?

JB I didn't go looking for the current fleet, they just sort of followed me home and now they won't leave without an extradition order from the Japanese government..

They're quite good videos and fairly informative too. Surprisingly solid little car you've got.

Just popping in to say it's me that's mentioned the headlining on your video so this is where to find me if you need pictures or info on how I did it. Very easy job compared to the other stuff you've been tackling, you'll have no bother with it.

Thanks for that I will, I've seen some suitable cloth on eBay and watched the Skill Shack video on sewing. We bought an old house last year, including the garage you see in the videos and it came with a couple of old sewing machines and one fairly modern one so I am seriously considering having a go. The Kadett/Astra roof looks to be all very straight forward folds so, should be handy enough. I've a tight deadline though for an event that I want to use the car in so, we'll have to see how it goes.

Here's the latest video, getting a look behind the front wings

That's very flattering, the fun thing about the internet is you can go into more detail than on mainstream television.
