The Machine Mart kits don't look any better than the other high street
stuff. I'll see what the local Halfords has to offer - I'd forgotten that
they do a lot of decent Sykes Pickavant stuff nowadays.

It's the convenience of being able to make them one piece at a time rather
than ripping them all out and getting them made in one go - I like the easy
life. I've got at least 3 cars worth to do in the near future which does
make it seem slightly less financially extreme. But 140 does seem enough to
make me baulk - if nothing turns up beforehand I'll see what I can find at
