I've copied this to LRO. Hopefully it'll come back soon in one piece. Please keep updated.
FWIW I had a Reliant Scimitar taken from works car park in the 80s. Found a few days later undamaged.

Thanks guys, really appreciate the help and thoughts. We're doing all we can but no triggers on the ANPR but thanks to FB network it was seen being taken. Towed out by woman in small van, partner in Landy, I kid you not, this is mid morning, tiny Lidl car park and 10 yds from shop windows and tills. Unbelievable. Police are on the case, very impressed but I hold out little hope...

Not surprised. Even for hardened villains with access to balaclavas and high Dernier, face-obscuring tights, avoiding being seen driving Princess Anne's favourite car must have been a challenge.

(Sorry!)

Paintman, meant to say thanks for posting on LRO. If I'm correct you must be the same paint specialist I chatted to on the Difflock forum many years back about painting my ex MOD Ninety. Small world!

No problem & hoping it turns up soon.
Whilst my username is what I do - SMART repairs on caravans & cars - & I do give advice on vehicle painting I suspect that might have been the Paintman (Bill?) who also sells paint for Land Rovers.

Very sorry to say not a sausage, no sightings on cctv or ANPR. Vanished into thin air. Trying to put it behind us this week at least and enjoy Christmas.
