No if you look at the RAC rear doors they say ROAD SERVICE I put them the wrong way SERVICE on the left door! I made a hash of the roof board & took the all off, the AA side doors were added tonight as I was more relaxed.

Thanks, indeed you better do those things when there is no one around and when you are at ease.

Yes , I waited ages for the parts to come & wanted to finish the cars but I was too tired! Happy with tonight's result & nearly finished the Spot-On RAC Land Rover

I do beileve andy66 is correct in his decal placements. Here are some pictures from Jacques DuJardins Encyclopedia.


































Note the three different versions of the AA Mini and also, there is no decal or sticker on the back side of the roof top sign on both models. Due to the shape of the original, there was no room for the same decal. The reproductions I have had and seen do not look like the back of the originals. They have 2 fronts, so to speak.


Very nice work and they really look good now that you have them complete.

Just to finish off these restorations I have put the trio together & added the desirable Vote for Somebody Mini van which is all original.

Two of the best restorations I've seen, and the Vote for Somebody Mini is a very rare find especially in this condition.

Many thanks, I had the Vote van when I was a kid the figure from it is shown , I was lucky to get this one a couple of years back with a rear door missing I still had the one which was missing from my original van so it is now nearly complete apart from the lead to the mike, will put pictures on of my original van which I painted light green & made cardboard rear doors for, when I find it .

Am I right in saying that this Corsair with driver only came with the set containing the Healey Speed boat, my one shown is in metallic red & does not have the drivers face painted.
