Herewith four shots of the Achilles.

You will see that I have had new valances made, by the man who did the spare-wheel mounting [also pictured]. The latter was a tour-de-force in which the exact Hounsfield method of bending and welding a single piece was replicated, rather than taking the easy way by welding up several triangles. Good that there are still people who will respond to the challenge.  The newly-glazed windscreen and sun-shade piece are here but yet to fit. You may remember that there was a near disaster with the frame, which was rescued in the nick of time from the liquidators of the glazing outfit which went under.

I have found a way round the supposed problem of wiring separate side lights.

All the best
