Finally got my Father's Day present for June last year!
My son ordered it from Hattons not realising that "pre-order" could mean anything up to two years or more from actually being released!
Nice little Hillman Imp though, worth the wait. My stepfather had a sky blue one.

As did my uncle. I'll never forget him bombing around in it cursing all and sundry ;D

I had one just that colour.
Sold it after about 3 weeks though to get a Triumph 1300.

I had a white one. A couple of cement blocks in the front improved the road holding. I sold it to buy a MG TC 1949 vintage.
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Very slow progress on the factory. I spent four or five days solid cutting card, ended up with terrible RSI in my wrist, absolute agony for two or three days!
Plus a completely numb forefinger from pressing down on the scalpel.
Three weeks later it is still numb  :(
After scouring the shops I found a rubber thimble with a hard plastic pad that seems to help, but I'm just doing a little each day now.....

Very sorry to read that, Mike. I hope that you recover, soon. The thimble sounds an excellent idea. Take it slowly.

Do take it slowly.
You’ll get there in the end.

Definitely no need to rush (follow my example!)  :D

Hope all is well soon.

Don't try and get back into it too soon, it only takes a couple of cuts to bring it back with a vengence, don't ask how I know.   :veryangry:    :censored:

To quote my old aunt "Patience is a virtue"..... besides if you finish quickly you'll only want to start the next one!
