I like that mate a car hobby I'm almost exactly the same, but my wife became ill, so I packed up my lifetime love of fishing, to be home more. With the car, I can go for a spin, and be back in two hours, having my fix. However I wish we lived closer, as I'd come and cadge a few of your idea's, watch you and then try myself. I'm really hopeless at DIY of any kind, not practical at all. Economics and Finance are my given skills, but I'm finding even that difficult now days, as my mind wanders frequently. I'm hoping this summer I may find a local MG enthusiast that does his own work near by. Just to watch and get advice.
