Good to see another on its way to being restored. They seem to be around but still as rare as sailors parachutes. The irony is that owners soon dispose - or tire - of them and sell them on. Maybe it's like living in a haunted house

In fact, I gently remind the ex works people that they're rarer that ex works cars

That blue light/roof box gave me a real headache. It'd been welded up, presumably with a gas welder and had distorted the roof. So a vinyl roof covering was used that strll showed the distortion. So it was a new roof that was a bit of a job. The GOOD news that because the roof was still in production I could get a new one from Unipart and under the employees scheme by a Unipart neighbour. It cost the grand sum of £13 or so in 1984. I did question it and my kindly neighbour explained that it was a one hit pressing, done at PSF in Swindon. So new roof it was......

That’s a great picture of 124J. Not seen it before.
