This is how she sits at the moment..

i currently have the cylinder head off being skimmed, as it is pressurising the water system,

I put the front panels on loosely as i have never seen it complete! bit of a moral boost!

Nice to see one of my favourite vehicles being saved, I always thought they were the best one tonner by miles. I just wish I had the wherewithal to do one myself, so thank you for all your great work


Best wishes and good luck.

Keep the pictures flooding in: Especially the boring ones of welding.


They all make me miss my old K9 even more.
