Well the wait was worth it. The original SAAB Sport & Rally wheel renovated by Mota Lita looks superb, helped enormously by a decent horn badge not the cheap and nasty original one.

Newly renovated wheel on the left! Original condition wheel on the right.

Nice - looks good with the red stiching. You can't beat a MotoLita wheel on a Saab!

Full out at the moment, sorting a bent boat trailer :( , garden landscaping, kids over Easter hols and day job but am still doing bits. The new axle strap is now made, fasteners/brackets all treated and painted whilst the inner wing is now prepared for spraying various potions :D Thankfully my wife sorts the house and kids mostly despite a full time teaching job.

It,s been a month since I have done anything to the 96 :oops: . All energies have been directed at fixing the trailer and sorting the boat which we have been out on over the last few days :D Seeing the kids fish and play makes all the effort worthwhile. Good to see old sailing buddies but my liver is complaining!

Nice to get back working on her this weekend, I was hoping to get the last wheel arch done this week but I now have a 1980's Mercedes coming in tomorrow to do for a client which will have to go on my lift for the duration. I need to make up another axle strap and it,s a lot easier when it's on the lift, but should be able to get other stuff done on her today :D oh and need to sort the pictures out somehow!

All my pics have come back :park: :D Brilliant, thank you to who ever has done that! I have also put one up today that worked but my old ones did not so somebody must have helped. Thank you. Edit, correction some pics have come back :? Odd!

Really enjoyed today got a few things sorted I didn,t know how to resolve on the car, my 11 year old also cleaned up a few parts this evening which gets him involved. She is off the lift now back in the garage unfortunately but clients cars are a priority. One more day on the rear inner arch and the rear wing will be ready to go on.
