In Dali Bill tried to get a local mechanic to repair the Whippet’s radiator but he took one look at it and wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole. Either he wouldn’t risk damaging such a valuable vintage vehicle, or he possibly thought it was only hanging to life by a thread and he didn’t want to become known as the bloke who wrecked the Bondi to the Baltic project. Dunno, but he was immoveable. So Bill’s brother Pete has been instructed to slip a replacement radiator into his checked luggage when he joins us in Chengdu for a week or so on the road. Easy!
