Only a few from today - i was busy doing nothing and dodging the rain so i couldn't get the hubble out to snipe anyone so you are all safe lol

Great turnout and good to see the two clubs together - big thumbs up to Scott and Stuart for organising :th:

Shame the Gazebo's went to ground though :no:

Damn was it windy at times though!!

Good to meet some new IMOC people and chat and good to see Pete and Chris (OC) on the M5 along with the grey tubby and the awesome black tubby with the Enkei's (IMOC) give me a wave on the M5/M6 too :th:

Good stuff :th:

Good Pics, HM, given what the weather was like most of the day.

I'm still bloody confused though. I talked to a few different people today. Did we meet or bump into each :)

I don't know but a good day none the less.

Without trying to sound homosexual in anyway, Pete :) were seeing less of you these days and looking good for it. I think you know what I mean.

I was going to try and have a chat with you, other than saying hello, but couldn't think of much to say. So without ending up sounding a "censored", I left it at that :)

Shame about the gazebos though.

Cheers Fella :D

Hope you wasn't put off by the hoody.. I had no coat and needed warmth, so bought it from Scott.

See you at the WRA in a fortnight maybe?

@Madmat - saw your Spider - looked very nice :D

@PeteJ - good to finally catch up - Japspeed FTW!! I have to say it was just as loud as mine too when giving it beans i think - will have to get Grandad Mick involved in a sound-off!!

@spudgun - saw you briefly a few times but pic of the day someone took was you religiously washing your car IN THE RAIN!!!! Hats off sir!!! (I was sheltering under the Gazebo at the time shouting "you missed a bit") LOL

So hard to put usernames to faces at these events some times!!

That was quite funny that. I started washing and it did start rain what I thought was a little shower. I stopped for a second and realised EVERYONE had dissapeared and were under the gazebos watching me.
Worth it in the end though, well shiney :th:

It certainly was worth it - unbelievable condition of that car of yours - a worthy place of show car :th:

Wish my paint was that good!!!

You wouldn't believe how much effort has gone into that over the last 2-3 weeks.
I replaced the rear bumper skin with one I bought off Paff. Sprayed it myself (turned out pretty good too)
The paint work has had about 20 hours of hand polishing on it :shock:
The bonnet and wings had over 3 hours spent on em alone.
I'm pleased with it though.
I was suprised how few MR2's there were at the show outside of the mk2 models. I saw no mk3's at all and 3 mk1's 2 on our stand and 1 on TB.

Nice pics not a bad day considering the weather thanks to all those who came to say hello, did come over to your stand (after spending ages trying to find it) but it was dead with litterally no one in sight :D
