Biggles,

You obviously love to improve and modify your Rib, and very smart it looks too!

I was wondering, when you were younger and first started owing cars, did you used to spend your spare time trawling the shelves of Halfords for items such as fog lights and spot lights to festoon the bumpers with, along with go faster stripes, wolfrace wheels and the odd whiplash aerial?

If this is the case and you have any photos, do post them...I could do with a good laugh!

By the way the 303 cleaner (neat) for the tubes is fantastic

I was a poor Northener we were lucky to have a soup kitchen and fresh milk. Never mind a posh Halfords.

So far I've gone as far as you with the old lettering lark. Go faster stripes are later. Do Halfords do waterproof ones ?

Sorry ...I was just chuckling to myself about your revolving flashing light and proposed lettering for your tubes and was trying to imagine what on earth you did do your first cars. I was guilty with a large green stick on sun visa which said "Tim 'n Sharon"

Me I had go faster stripes on a Maxi. Covered the rust and the split down the chassis. No furry dice though. LOL.
