The zed moved into its new home yesterday. Still a few jobs to do. At least it's under cover and I can progress it's rebuild. Thinking of keeping it trophy blue as that's it's identity and the reason I bought it. Besides a colour change will be a big task. However, it won't be just plain blue.

Starts on the button every time so far! Love hearing it again. Gave it a wash this evening, so much dust got under the cover.

Doing a bit here and there. Some on the garage, some on the zed.

Garage now has led strip lights, what a transformation! Plumbed in water to front and back so the outside tap that now resides inside the garage now supplies taps for the back garden and driveway.

The zed has been prepped and ready for itís polycarbonate windows, left off until the bodywork has been finished. Got the lightweight door panels to fit, all profiled.

At some point I will be contacting Matt Reidy regarding the possibility of dialling in the throttle bodies. It might be too much for him but unless I ask I wonít know.

He's based even closer to me now than before - since I moved & he moved locations.

If you do end up at his unit ping me and I'll see if I can swing by and catch-up and have a poke around too!

Not much to report. Storage and shallow worktop/bench added for the zed parts. Been busy elsewhere doing DIY. Each time I look at the zed I see so much work!

Busy life, other things get in the way and some are more important like family. Itíll improve in time. Got the winter months to enjoy. These hot days are too much.
