Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

Just been looking through this thread. What an awesome little car!! Really appreciate the time/money & effort you've put into it. Even the small little details like the bonnet arm painted black.

I got myself some heavy duty hangers from ebay - massive thick things they are and are holding up really well compared to the others!

Ah! Been looking for some roof bars for mine for a while now!! Can't seem to find any second hand, the Mont Blonc ones seem to be the best, but just cant find any. Whereabouts did you pick yours up from?
