That was the donor car for this one - loads of spares for sale if you need them. Please dont ask about the Discovery project behind that as you might then show an interest in the Bungalow project behind that and then maybe the landscaping project to the side of it. Now you might guess why the Marin project is taking so long.


I know that problem all too well! I like the P38, they seem to be disappearing pretty quickly unfortunately, I hardly ever see one now. I shouldn't imagine many parts from the Series IIA were carried over into the P38 but if you find any I might be interested :-)

Now the sun's finally come out I took the Pine out for a little loop around some Warwickshire bridleways and I have to say it rides a lot better than I ever remembered.

Here's some pics of it finally finished.
