So I hope over the next few days I can upload some photos and story of Clockwork Orange.
The build has taken 18 years but we are only a few days away from getting full rego.

Clockwork Orange won the Morris Down under trophy at the Morris Minor Nationals as well as the Paul Kelly trophy.

It's a great outcome and you richly deserved the Paul Kelly and the MDU trophy Bruce.

Your workmanship is spot on and you've done some really innovative things,

It's been great watching it unfold. Some really good original ideas and careful work Bruce.

I think you've shown some of the so-called professionals a thing or two.

Cheers David
