    Hope to get it the bulk of the welding done this month, any filling I hope to keep to a minimum and if any hope to do it with lead, sourcing the parts is difficult as lights are only 55-57 and some panels are unavailable, Was going to keep it stock, I was going to get it into primer or paint and sell it but I'm thinking of keeping it now so may go down the 12v route now

    Im gathering a pile for the powder coater, took me an hour with gunk and the jet wash to clean up the front beam, oh and also a brush handle and lump hammer to clear the middle of the the top tube of what was left of the torsion leaves !!
  12. Nice one Pie, keep the pics coming!!

    Good luck, hope it goes smoothly :D
  13. Palm over sand looks awesome, have fun :)

    Palm over sand for me as well. Much more classy than a single colour.

    Did a trolly dash around Schofields today, Rick there was brilliant!!!

    Removed the front panel, it had a big ding in it and the metal had streached, As I want to keep any filling down to a bare minimum if none!! decided to replace it!The acid and coating had done its job it looked like new in there.[​IMG][/URL[​IMG]
    New face ready to go on, none of them there indicators![​IMG]

    The illusive tool box, Rick had a new one in his stash[​IMG]

    Got her up on stilts![​IMG]
