I quit cigars a few years back.  Don't really enjoy them.  I'm thinking a spot of tea, perhaps?

I am putting together a kit with everything to make tea that will be in a riveted box and semi-1950's period correct for the bugeye when its done.   Feels like a necissity for a old british car, plus my wife REALLY likes to get her brew on.

After fiddling around with the distributor, I decided to replace it.  Pertronics makes a claimed-drop-in replacement unit.  It arrived on my doorstep yesterday.  Can't wait to try it out...

I also removed the passenger side fuel tank (the one with rust and leaks) and took it to a shop here in Bodymorgue Murderland.  They hot tanked it, derusted it, and fixed the leaks.  Picking it up tonight.
