    Hmm — I forgot about my 12 volt tea kettle —

    I need to go find it, the English Bone China cups & saucers, sugar tweezers and drive-in tray so I can put them in the back of Manypenny  for my next drive around the block!!

    Ok Roy, I will simplify — I’ll get rid of the sugar cubes and the sugar cube tweezers and change the label “Diorama” to something more descriptive  like “Scene depicting  a happy British Motoring Couple having their CUPPA while parked at that special overlook on the Welsh Coast” or maybe even “Time for Tea” or simply leave the scene unnamed and let the observer come up with their own mental description.  (i.e. Wobby saying “WOW, an  ugly, tasteless, tacky tea pot.”)

    Now you’re having fun.

    Tea is apparently indispensable to any British car build process, as we have all learned from watching the Project Binky videos. (You HAVE binge-watched them all, haven’t you?)

    Since and while we’re having so much fun, Jack, they’re not tweezers.  They are tongs.

    OK Roy, so it’s tongs and not tweezers & it’s knackered and not messed up & it’s sorted out and not worked out…

    …and it’s a bonnet and not a hood & it’s packing and not gaskets/”thin rubber thingies.”  I’m starting to get it.

    I guess that means Ed needs to  add some German vocabulary to his daily chats about his fine new Porsche Spyder kit and some Japanese engine verbiage to talk to his German/Japanese/English “Bridget” (er doesn’t the fact that she is named Bridget (ala Bardot) require a little French to be thrown into the mix was well?)

    Well enough fun.  Today is seat back, carpet, door checks and door panel day…

    What Fun!!

    Happy Jack
