Newbie saying hello

Post  MK2 Mark on Sun Sep 15, 2013 8:00 pm

Hi all, recently bought a MK2 Scamp... You may know this car already..if I was to say Trevor from Telford.....that should give you a clue....
Been into kit cars for ages..owned various ones, gotta say that picking up the scamp and driving it home gave me the biggest smile on my face...
Have always loved them.. Just took me long enough to persuade the Mrs!!!!
Already started altering bits and bobs..looking forward chatting and meeting up...

Cheers

Mark

Will those front wheel arches pass an MOT ??

They look like shin cutters.

Most members use square section plastic gutters or the strips that hang down from factory doors that fork lifts drive through.
