Ok, its been a week or so since our last update, but TBH there is just so much going on with the preps for the trip that blogs tend to be updated as the time is found.The picture above shows the "Half Roc" trailer (the rear end of a 1990 Scirocco GT2 !) being constructed.Unlike many of you travellers on this site our trip involves a lot of "Tech" work to get the hardware sorted, no jumping on a Jumbo and heading for the sun in our plans (worst luck !).The trailer is (or rather has, as it has now been built !) being built by a firm called ASMech in Mansfield Notts, and all for free, now that is what i call help with a capital "H" ! :-).The half car was donated by a member of the Scirocco Owners club,he trailered it down the road from dearby and we then unloaded it at ASMech's premises ready for it's transformation into a thing of purpose.
The trailer towing am was attatched, and the unit was towed back to sunny Sleaford late last week.It is currently on my drive awaiting an appointment with AW Accident repair centre in Sleaford who are going to tidy her up and paint her the same colour as the car...Paprika Red...nice.
