Unedited footage in quite difficult light conditions, perfect for a test.

Fortunately not. I was pumping the water out of the pool to store it for next season but because we have had so much rain this summer the ground was saturated so I flooded our garden, the neighbours garden and the firebreak behind the garden.

No harm done and I do like the reflections in the water. 😉

I noticed on the weather forecasts, let's hope we'll have plenty of sunny autumn days. I hope to get my Sinclair C5 running before winter and my shed is too small to work on it comfortably.

I love C5s when people see it, they find it hard to believe that it was made in 1985. (I don't use my smartphone much, touchscreens hate me and I hate them..)

A very nice complete example!

I'm not sure yet if I'll mount indicators on mine. Currently they're mounted on my "spare part" C5, but one is scratched and the rubbers are in bad condition and I kind of like the clean white look with only the mirrors. (and original stickers obviously.)

No harm done, I'll put a drainage pipe into the ground next spring so that water can get out of the garden into the firebreak more easily. The local government doesn't do any maintenance on it nor on the field behind it so I already use it for natural composting of garden waste. Saves my wife buying bags of pot soil for her plants. 🙂
