So garage is emptyish and shed is full, spent last night fitting locks and tonight loading it up.

Start sorting all the bits for the build up on Friday morning 😎😉

So the last of the welding is complete, the work that Dave and Matt have done is fantastic, just hope I can do it justice during the build up.

Ninove is 6 weeks this Sunday, hoping to get it back next week, but Dave still has paint to do and Steve has got to do the blending. I’m away February half term too, so it’s going to be tight :(

I had (have) a 300 line excel spreadsheet with all my bits listed and sourced replacements as required..
Still seeking a couple of bits LOL.
This was used as my fit out plan of stages of work planning..
Oh I used to be a Project Manager/ Engineer..?

Thanks Ted.

I appealed against their decision to refuse me the number plate and got this yesterday.

Not sure how they can say it’s not the original plate?

More paint today, black going on tomorrow.

So the SC was originally Sealng Wax Red, but looks like it was over painted with a grey primer, then black over a darker red, maybe this was done when the front panel was replaced, who knows, but it’s going back the same. So Dave paints a beautiful coat of Sealing Wax Red then covers it up 😳😳😳

Everywhere is now painted, apart from the black, blending next week.
