I'm looking forward to it. Flying over from Switzerland specially - and missing the Retro Classic Show in Stuttgart :(

Hi,

I went for the first time last year, fascinating event with loads of stalls and lots of parts on offer.

My advice would be to make sure you have a specific list of what you need and also that you understand exactly what the part you need looks like. I found quite a few parts mislabelled, I was looking for tools and a jack.

I'm making my list, and checking it twice... :)

Fortunately I have a running list of the parts etc I am looking for. Note to self. Remember to print it out before leaving.

#5 Spare Parts Day

It is indeed a very nice event, but it is a shame that most deals take place on Saturday evening and on Sunday we buy the left over. Sorry for my broken english

Thank you for the tip off.

I went along, met a few nice folk and bought my first parts.

Full front suspension kit.
Full coolant hose kit.
New front brake cylinders.
New brake pipes, flexi and copper.

I will have the Allard back together later this week and then I can start.

Thanks again.

Arron
