    WW1 Thornycroft restoration

    We used to get gearbox castings and rough them out before they went in the bike shed for a few months, I wonder if the thought was to take tension out by removing the skin from the iron?
  3. A guy I saw on you tube buys a new tarp every couple of years to cover the originally supplied cover, he has got 10 years out of the original cover this way..... not sure that it would not be cheaper to factor in a new cover every 4 years or so though.... (since photo was taken I have taken up the slack on the end of the cover and fitted a rolling pole to the bottom of the doorway, rolls up nice and tidy now).
  4. Bought one from them last week, had to modify it to fit where I needed it, (made it 300mm shorter). I purchased another opening end so that I can open it right up. I will be fitting it with a solar powered extractor fan as I have discovered it is like a sauna in hot weather. The whole thing is of good quality and only time will tell whether the cover is as UV stable as they say it is.
