So I am writing this blog on behalf of my brother Dave (Freshp5) who does not have access to a laptop and like a few people only surfs this forum on their phones
So Dave had been talking for a while now about building another kit and as we are both joint owners in the yellow Mevster it meant one of us always had to take the passenger seat. Also with my son Jamie sometimes joining us we had to take a tin top
Pistons and Props in September 2016, a 2 day event proved to be one of those 'lets draw straws' events with Dave and Jamie getting Saturday and me and Jamie getting Sunday
Sunday came and we all set off to the event which was a great day saw loads of cars and met some good people
At the end of the event we set off for home with Dave behind us in his daily works van.
On the way home Dave flagged me down and we regrouped at the services with nothing but panic going through my mind. Was there something wrong with the Mev or had the cursed white van decided to have another fit.
Dave had received a call that would bring a new chapter to our Team Mevster Crew.
He had been offered the chance to purchase the older brother to our yellow Mevster from another forum member.
Darren (mrjingles) Started his build at the same time as we did back in 2014 with dave visiting him on the odd occasion to check how it was going .
Darrens build had hit a stumbling block due to a ankle injury he would not be able to complete the build or even drive it .
So not wanting to see it go to waste dave jumped at the chance to complete it.
So on the 1st October we where greeted with this a part built mevster with some of the first build work done but still a long way from completion .We loaded up the trailer and the big van dave had borrowed with what seemed like box after box of items for the car Brakes, wiring, steering and all the panels still wrapped in bubble wrap for the journey back to its new home in daves modified shed.
So as you can see Dave has been busy over Christmas weekends working on his new toy with a bit of help from ken here is where he is at now
A few bits of trim and some seat belts it will be ready for the big IVA test
thanks for reading
