At this rate, the naughty corner is going to be larger than the BX gathering! ;)

Timex'll be there, and if I move it every 1/2 hour or so I'll be able to de-ice the car park for them with the LHM and oil leaks!

Looks like I probably won't make it to this after all. Hugh is up from London this weekend (would normally have been last weekend but he's swapped round). The logistics of getting him to a train station on Sunday afternoon would be a bit of a problem and he's really not that into cars. I'll have a chat about it on Friday night, he may be persuadable after a couple of glasses of wine. :D

Gaydon's not far from Warwick - handy for the train.

No worries Tim. I wouldn't want to get there much later or frankly there's no point driving so far. We'll see you when we see you.

I'm glad we decided to meet on the Sunday rather than the Saturday. Sounds like OMG SNO KAOS for the Midlands tomorrow. I'm heading over to Bromsgrove to stop with relatives so hopefully things will have calmed down a bit later on. Sunday sounds like it might be pleasant weather-wise! No excuses Tim. ;)

Excellent. I've managed to cram Timex's original tailgate into the boot of the TXD. The BX really is a practical bit of kit isn't it?

WTF is loaded up and polished, whilst dodging the snow.

Mike I have a set of suitably patinered rear headrests for Timex you are welcome too, but they are missing the stems, a set of cut down fronts will do.

Ive been very kindly given some for the DTR which match the seats better (thanks Mothman).
