Nope. Brewer is more like off the scale these days.

It's great to see some photos of what I missed on the Friday and Saturday.

Circumstances have allowed me to drive the car quite a lot in the last few days, and it feels great with its new brakes and functioning wheel bearings. I was even inspired to finish the half finished cam belt cover today, only six months after I started it.

Great to hear it gave you a service boost. Andy et al certainly worked hard on your car.

Regarding the CCW article, the aim was not to turn the other cars into turbos, or as a reference car, but great to hear praise anyway.

Go on...pick on a chap for being vertically challenged..it's just like school all over again :boohoo: :boohoo: :boohoo:

Actually because of Mr Brewer's er.. width, and that he's always photographed next to giants (Ed, Ant, Fuzz..) you tend to think he's really short, which he isn't. He's quite a big bloke close up. Whereas I am. genuinely short... but perfectly proportioned I think you'll agree :grin:
