    Bernd! I was pulling your leg!! Do it anyway you want! You are bringing a Harrington back to life with your hard earned money and time. This site is so straight faced and everyone thinks someone is saying they are doing it better. (Secretly we all are) ;) But we can have some fun with our friends. Especially ones we respect. See you at spares day. ( Just don't glue on your badges, or I won't talk to you again:p)

    Limey, I have a Harrington. I'd be very interested in a Harrington boot script. Are the ones that you are having made all spoken for? My car is a series "D," as such it has no external "Harrington" identifiers. I'm not positive I'd drill holes in the fiberglass and install this, but I've always wanted something on the outside of the car that said Harringon. Best Regards, Buell

    Tigers are simply great cars - try one ...[/QUOTE]

    I don't think they are, infact Alpines aren't great cars to start with (but I love the look). A Tiger is an Alpine (without fins sadly..) with a V8 dropped in.

    The only good one is Jan Igboms V8 Harrington.However I do respect yours or anybody elses preferences.

    For $80,000 I could get an Aston Martin, an E type or a Facel Vega. All of them many times a better and more handsome car than a Tiger. That's only my opinion and I acknowledge that it has no more validity than anybody elses opinion.

    However, having spent £50,000++ and 2000hrs on my Harrington I am very obviously no way qualified to advise anyone how to spend their money or time 'wisely'. o_O 'love is in the eye of the beholder'

    Hi Buell

    Nearly there

    Cut in Brass with 5 axis water cutting to get the sloped sides. Studs are now in place. I just have to hand form each one to the boots curve and prep the surfaces before sending the Derby Plating. (DP are the best in the UK and have chromed some Pebble Beach winners) Real 'Old Skool'
