    before moving to France, i needed to get some skins replaces on the Bassett which were corroded as we were having it re-sprayed. Through a friend of a friendI was told about a guy that worked in the back and beyond somwhere near winchester on a small ramshackle industrial estate for want of a better description well it was little more than a collection of old nissen huts up a dirt road. having difficulty finding the right hut I phoned the guys mobile and a head popped out of a shed . I went in with waht I needed to have repaired and entered the second war all around this jam packed little unit were a/c parts being repaired and restored, the central item was one Nick graces ex iraqi tempests, which had seen better Days. For the life of me I do not think I could find the place again buy it was a nice discovery
