That looks lovely, Jim - and I think the colour suits it well.

May I publish the pics (and anything else you want to send me?) in the Bond Info magazine?

Yes, well done Jim. Only two years?  That's fast compared to most of our projects!

I like the way many Bond owners despite them having a dedicated club are gravitating towards Rumcars. We must be doing something right or is it that the Bond club is doing something wrong? Don't answer that!
We also seem to have attracted a few Isetta owners lately too.
The more the merrier I say.

Nothing at all wrong with the Bond Club Bob , or the newsletter ( best ever issue this month i think - thank you Dave Miller of this parish ) but there is no Bond forum .... yet  :)

Sharpes intake of breath! Bonds just seem so traditionally 50's its hard to see technology catch up with them. Why, more than others, I cannot say. Maybe they are the quintessentially eccentric successful car.

Hi all cheers for support yes that smile on my face is one of deep contentment, Dave you are very welcome to use these pics I’ll be in touch soon with more info and Richard yes I used that rear seat I could not believe my luck when I came across it when you had it for sale at the Bond National thanks again, when I got the car it never had a rear seat so I was well chuffed the rear door is the original that was attached to my Bond when I got it two years ago so I don’t know who purchased the one you had for sale, hey you lot I don’t know whether to laugh or cry but The Bond Club recons I hold the record for most money spent in one day at one of there parts stalls. :-\
