Bugly's Rear Wings

Well, I have bitten the bullet and asked Iain MacKenzie of Fairmile Restorations in England to manufacture Bugly a set of rear wings. Iain is about to do a small production run of J-Van wings, so hopefully they will soon be on the way. Meantime, not much progress has been made on Bugly's restoration, as too many other things keep cropping up. And I guess we need to be realistic with our priorities.

My excuse is that my other half and I are volunteer firefighters in our local rural community, and we are rostered on call for one week in four. This is on top of our normal day-jobs, so we can find ourselves rather busy on weekends, especially from now on as we come into our fire season. As Captain of the Brigade, I also need to fill in for other crew members on their shifts if they are unavailable, just to keep the wheels turning.

I am also an accredited trainer/assessor of volunteer firefighters, and often need to commit time to these functions. No rest for the wicked, as they say!
