Could have sworn I was the right hand.......

You are doing a fantastic job Neil so please keep posting, especially a few close ups of your welding

For those that aren't aware, Neil has very little use of his left hand, yet has managed to rebuild this 356 from a rusty wreck.
He is incredibly talented yet low key about his achievements. If I could understand half of what he says ( pommy accent ) I'm sure we would get on OK

Keep up the great work Neil, as it is inspiring to see !

John, that is not a 'Pommy' accent - Yorkshire is a whole 'nuther thing

Top job Neil! (the one-armed bricklayer from Bradford?)

All starting to make sense now Richard.
( I thought that Neils above post referred to his bus having to be towed home for a fee )

All perfectly clear now. Immigrants !
