Fuel tanks blasted. Progress is slow but steady !

One good thing, i now have the manual, so that should help immensely !

Spent all day trying to get tillers to work again. Got there eventually by stripping down and replacing seals.

Both fuel tanks cleaned and repaired. Treated inside and out with a two pack resin that will seal any pin holes remaining. Tested by filling with water, and thankfully, not a drop came out !

Its never going to be seen, jammed full of engine and stuff !

It will protect the inner hull from rust & looking unsightly . Also easier to pressure wash out, should you get a fluid leak in the future.

Very interesting, thanks Dale.  Sort of like an FV432 but not, if you see what I mean!

Waiting for new seals for tillers !

I still don't quite understand why there are four tillers. I'm sure it will all come out in the wash, as my nana says.
