The journey begins....

Hi Everyone,

I have just joined this group tonight. The attached photo shows the reason why.

Two old friends came out of a long hibernation last week. Sadly, they have both suffered a bit from long storage so there is quite a bit of work to do to have them back on the road for next year.

I'm going to be back here often looking for advice...

Cheers,

dak

Thank you. The convertible used to be my main daily car, but I have never actually driven the coupe yet.

Well done that man. You are lucky to have 2 so when you take 1 apart you have the other to show you where the parts should go back.
Looking forward to your future posts and ready to help when needed.
