During it’s restoration and renovation some parts that were designed for use on the road is now fitted with parts designed for use in the air - a fitting combination for an Airshow & Festival of Transport.  

When the present owner bought the car it had been under a tarpaulin for 7 years in Borth, Nr. Aberystwyth, totally corroded including wiring, instruments and metal components.   Difficulties in finding original Lomax instruments set him down the road of using “out-of- the-box” thinking, the result of which led to him fitting instruments and gauges originally intended for aircraft,  e.g. Turn and slip, G acceleration, oil pressure, exhaust gas temperature and others. 

These parts were originally used in impressive aircraft such as a Vulcan, Buccaneer, Jaguar  and even an ignition switch from a PBY Catalina.
