Post Red and White D0LLY
On the 31st of July we pick up the keys to our new house and my wife has very kindly allowed me to start tinkering with cars again. Mum still has a red special I need to sort out but a friend asked if I could keep an eye out for a 2cv for her. A few lost eBay auctions later and this lovely R&W D0lly popped up. It looks a bit tired but nothing too bad.

I pick her up on the 3rd August but I popped down yesterday to have a good look around and see what was/wasn't there.

Dudley!....it looks to have had nothing done on it since we sold it 3 years ago - needed rear sweeps, rear light panel (if doing a full resto) - worse bit is the front lower windscreen and hinge as you have seen - but otherwise it was a sound car and passed through about 6 MOT's in our ownership with welding bits done every year, new kingpins, wheel bearings etc.....

Well Dudley is back home and in the garage alongside mums Red Spesh. Dudley is in a remarkable condition really other than a completely rotten chassis. Dudleys future owner has agreed to keep it as a Red and White D*lly.

Mums red spesh is such a basket case that we're going to tackle that first. Well once I save up enough pennies for two of Kens finest products...
