So I see at the end of this month there is a show at Santa pod....vw action !

I'm hoping to take Gerry to his very first show ...

So if I go on the Sunday is there a Splity line up for the Ssvc ?

Do I need to book a place in the line up to be with the club ?

Ooooo I have so much to learn about all this stuff

Cheers

Mark

Mark,

I'm sure there will be a SSVC line up, but why not put it into the show and shine ???

Got home today to find Claire had been on a roll making the remaining inner trims ....

Top girly :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:






Image





So the pressure was back on me to. Get them fitted to the inner trim cards and then fit tham into Gerry








Image








Image








Then I finished off the relaxing area ....... ( what earls would you call it ? ) anyway it turned out nice








Image










Image











Image








:cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:


Hoping to pick up my wheels with newly fitted tyres tomorrow to trial fit them in Gerry to see what they look like ( gaps and stuff )


With the kids being off school and all that I'm working on the bus most evenings wile the boys play out the front and every now and then I'll ask Louis to give me a hand ...... He loves to help out ....... We have done all the trimming together as he holds the trims wile I smooth them out onto the trim cards ...... What a team ... :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:


Also having a 5 and a 7 year old you can get to all those impossible places ....... Just use a kid ..... Woooop woooop




On count down to Gerry's first show at the end of this month....... VW Action at Santa pod...... And I'll pop him in show and shine


:cheers: :cheers: :cheers:


Hope to see you all there guy's and Girl's :wink:


How's going ???
