Apologies for the rubbish photo. We are getting close to paint on one of our Couriers, and I thought I would take a snap of it in primer, and guide coat. This car like many Couriers was originally painted in economy spec grey. As much as it bugs me to paint one of our cars a none original colour I just couldn't face seeing yet another Slate Grey example, so this one is turning Wedgewood. This actual car was one of JK's (John Kippings) very first 'company car' Heralds, and as such had already had a very hard life in the hands of the workforce before I came on the scene. Relegated to one of the storage sheds here many years ago it was replaced by a succession of other Couriers that one day might find their way into the restoration queue. Whilst I am on the subject has anyone out there got a spare Courier grille? Four Couriers about the place and every grille has 'walked', If I cant track one down then I'll stick a 12/50 one on temporarily.
