Listen to Tom Hanks.....do you want your pedals back :wink:

I dont think there will be much original stuff, most of the interior maybe....got a little old woman re-stitching my seats. She is a bit slow though :roll: ..........just need to find a rear seat cover (unlikely)

One of the jobs i have to do is get some brake shoes re-lined.... anybody done this? I have 5 axles sets, so i may have some spares if anybody wants any?
