The clouds were threatening and the skies were grey, but there was a bit of sun in the sky as well so it was not long before we were going to see a rainbow.
Of course when you park most old Land Rovers on some wet ground that is the inevitable result.
But it was not long before the sun came out and we could start admiring the new blue covers for the spotlights that I have on Katy to reflect how she would have been in service.
I tried not to be too antisocial using the siren, but I have to say that the spotlight covers from www.spotlightprotection.com.au look absolutely wonderful, they are just the right colour to give the impression of proper blue lights and are easy to fit and remove so the police won't get upset with me on the open roads (as long as I do remember to take them off)
If you are looking for spotlight covers in colours then I can fully recommend the service from Ashely at www.spotlightprotection.com.au. The delivery service from half way around the world was better than some UK companies can give!
Of course we were there with the South Wales Land Rover Club and the team did their normal excellent job of getting the marquee up and getting the kettle on so we could offer a real sense of hospitality to those who came along and maybe even persuade some of the Land Rover Owners to join us,
Talking of which I was really pleased to see my first Carmichael TACR Range Rover which parked up alongside the club stand and we made every effort to feel welcome
TACR stands for Truck Aircraft Crash rescue and you can read all about them on the TACR register web site
It really is a beast of a Range Rover with the extra pair of wheels and truly visibly outstanding with its brand new red paint job
