The rear wings have arrived!

I have finally received the rear wings and door shut sections for Bugly. Iain McKenzie of Fairmile Restorations finally despatched them on 30 November, and six days later they were delivered to Humpty Doo in rural Darwin, Australia. FedEx, I'm impressed! But I DID have to wait 23 months from my first enquiry.

I was also a bit disappointed in the finished product. I thought that the finish would have been a lot better, but perhaps I'm a bit naive ... I probably expected them to have been like off-the-shelf parts with at least an undercoat to protect the steel. Never mind, I will finish off the welding after fitting them to Bugly.

But at least I have them now.


  1. Well done - but 23 months delivery for each new section and it could take a lifetime to finish
