  1. The problem with the metal shed is that during spells of cold weather the thermal conductivity of the metal means it gets really cold. Then, usually in this country the cold weather is followed by mild weather with high humidity, the water then condenses out on the metal surface until the metal warms up, after a frost it can sometimes fall like rain on anything in the shed, you think that there is a hole in the roof, because in some places the water dribbles down an edge and build pools of water. Wood gets just as cold and no doubt condensation forms, however as long as its not painted with water repellent paint, the humidity is absorbed into the wood.

  2. Nice run (apart from having the sun in our eyes), nice brunch and nice cafe with a large car park, highly recommended. No idea if the Garden Centre was any good as we all had to leave the beat the rain home. Two out of 3 cars made it, the 3rd got sprinkled on during the last 2 miles. Now looking at the weekend of 21/22 or 28/29. Open to suggestions.

  3. A couple of us braved the frigid temperatures today and met up at the Charity Farm car meet, great to have a brew and a catch up with Ian. It seemed to be Porsche day today and mainly "tin tops". Attached are a couple of photos of cars that caught my eye. (not sure why they are upside down!!) Here's to the next run out Darrell

  4. Time for the latest update. I always knew January was always going to be a difficult month. Up until a few years ago all memberships started on 1 Jan. This put an impossible burden on my predecessor, and it also made life difficult for owners who wanted to register during the rest of the year. So the sensible decision was made to allow registration any time and have a rolling annual membership. However, there are still a large number of us old-timers whose renewals still occur in January. In fact there were 73 renewals due, some 20% of the total membership. The second problem is that very few people think about joining a kit car club in the middle of winter when it is cold and cars tend to be stuck in the garage. Out of sight out of mind. As predicted, we took a fairly heavy hit, with 17 members failing to renew. But we did actually welcome 3 new members which was nice. It leaves the membership at 366, so getting 400 members has had to take a step back. Roll on the summer months. The new members are: (Username, location and Area Sec) BikerNeil Wakefield Grim David Clark Bexley nelmo Phil Helliwell Hucknall andi Cheers Al (Membership Secretary)

  10. We put a plastic shed up at the daughter's about 5 years ago. It seemed fairly flimsy at the time but it's still standing. There is no maintenance other than oiling the door hinges and it looks as good as it did originally. I'd have to say that it still feels flimsy but it has stood up to the weather, the grand-kids and the neighbour's kids (who climbed on the roof). Hopefully it will be good for a few more years. Steve

  14. Well I can’t believe the hassle that comes with trying to by an engine. So far I have talked with two different people (not at the same time) that said they had an engine to sell and after some messaging and chatting on the phone and agreeing to buying they are just not getting back to me. Very frustrating.
