  1. Excellent piece of engineering as usual Jon. 👍
  2. Slow progress is still progress, it was never going to be a weekender, keep chipping away, it will be worth it in the end. Whats the spares availability like for one of these?
  3. Thanks Pete , I am pleased with the end result, it’s a few mm out in places but nothing to get annoyed with, many lessons have been learnt on tackling a project of this size.
  4. Thank you for the complement, a milestone has been reached and it’s only taken a mere 58 weeks.....so far😬
  5. Thanks Jon, it’s actually a relief to get it out of the garage and fitted, it certainly does spur you on to get stuck in and finish the project.
  6. Evening everyone Well....the time had come to see if everything fitted 🤔 and..........it did!! , well almost......sort of.....kind of.....a few alterations later and a certain amount of swearing, it fitted like a glove.

He has reproduced one of the missing gun butt holders and done a pretty good job. The ro
  11. It’s coming along nicely, these jobs are a labour of love, if you add up the hours spent cleaning and checking everything it’s not a good business model 😬
  12. Forgot to add these pictures
  13. !!! THE ROOF IS FINISHED !!! 🎉🍻🤪 (apart from filling, sanding, painting, fettling, whittling and fitting) Big push this week and a couple of days off work really did help Fitting the windscreen turned out to be the biggest pain, I’ve converted the screen surround so it bolts together instead of being weld, sounds easy!! Not!! I made the mistake of trying to refit what had been previously been repaired by someone else, I generally wasted a day trying to adapt what I had, it turns out that 75% of the screen surround isn’t original, no surprise there🤨 so....after banging my
  14. Had a large present delivered today 😁 Courtesy of Jon Morris Thank you again Jon for all your help with this 👍
