Re: 1958 Continental Claret -

I am taking easy to not upset my yearly guests...4th year in the run the nest is reused by a Wagtail couple.
This time 3 chicks. One felt from the nest today and I manage to put it back there without issues.

I will wait until they depart to spray both long sides.

Cheers dudes

Re: 1958 Continental Claret -

Does anyone have have a clue where I could find the middle finishing strip between the two fibreglass parade boots?

It was missing from the vehicle when I got it.

Cheers
