Looking back over the past 18 months a few things spring to mind;
and a set of original alloys with original spec Continental tyres for long distance touring
The choice for the car’s colour also saw a few different options. When I removed the leather seats from ‘t Kreng in 1998, I put them in the attic with the idea to use them in the DHC somewhere in the not to near future. And of course the car would be painted Sapphire blue, as it looked quite lovely. But by the time I had to decide on the colour, I had seen a few DHC’s in Cavalry Blue (which is almost the same shade as Sapphire Blue), and I found it didn’t look quite right on a DHC, they really need a bright colour.
