Miss Greenie is leaving the basement next weekend and moving in here. Almost every hour of my spare time since July has been laid down. Tired and satisfied. Is it worth it? I don't know. The fact I di

Hello, V11 aficionados! This thread is about me and my Greenie. Good days and bad days. A steep learning curve, maintenance, and later on some tuning and styling. I bought the '00 V11 Greeni

although, on the pipe wrap thang: I had my kwakker headers all wrapped, and was most pleased with the funky look! But later, upon removal, was greeted with an absolutely dreadful cancerous wodge of metal beneath... like i’ve not seen metal in such a poor condition...

oh crap- bar-end mirrors are bad too?

There're like those front mounted fender mirrors on cars from the 60's. Look like Micky Mouse ears on a bike.So many high quality unobtrusive standard mount mirrors available now there's no excuse for them.

Love the car (Healey 100/4 or is it a 3000?) hate the mirrors. If I had one of those the mirrors would be tossed. My dream is to build a Cobra replica(a sixties car). You dont see anyone using "wing" mirrors on them.

Yeah, yeah. Tons of wisdom about tectonics.         Of course I got in line and learned a lot.    And I of course bookmarked in order to later educate myself when ignored problems have their inevitable tantrum.     Your Flickr page? Great photos, great photo album.       A lesson in anatomy. the skeletal system, (the digestive tract), and a lens for once welcomed beneath a skirt.               A good gallery of images; a lot of work to document and post and a hearty hurrah that you did.

Hello guys!

There has been another delay in my project due to the passing of my father.
We lost him May 17th, our national day. He had suffered from Alzheimer's disease since 2013, and I sat with him when he died. Because of that all my time has gone with the funeral and supporting my mum. I have lost my wife, my father in law, my uncle and my father in 2,5 years. Sick and tired of death. 

Anyway, the Greenie is in good health! I hope to lift her out of the basement soon.
Yes, @docc it's about time, and I will of course post a mirror image :)
