I agree they really have moved it along rapidly and bizarrely they're always apologising for it not being faster. I have gone a bit mental and my tidy up has turned into a proper Resto to be honest but I'm massively happy with the job.

I'm going to miss going up to have a chat when it's finished. I'll just have to go without a reason :)

Olympic blue! Brilliant been looking for that colour since my wife decided thats the colour she wants our van (saw another t25 in town). Thanks

Looks very nice :ok

Its a big spooky as my first van was a Holdsworth Villa, 2-toned in the same fashion although I used F-ord Diamond white and F-ord Olympic blue for the lower area. I love Olympic blue as that was my favourite RS2000 colour when I worked in a F-ord dealership, light years ago so it made sense to resurrect it on the van.

Well done!
