Re: P1800 - The Saint

hi Grant
yes quite happy, I'm still in the discovery/fix phase, recently put back the windscreen/rear screen chromes, and now trying to have the Overdrive operate

I can only suscribe to this proposal, all the more since I know at least one other club to which I belong that followed the same path: Facel Vega
