Technology is wonderful when it works..
Here I am on the farm writing up the restoration work (almost) as I’m doing it. I’ve got my laptop wirelessly logged into the internet, and the photo card from my camera inserted to down load the photos I took just moments ago.
So what have I been doing this weekend>
Mainly the things that I’ve been putting off as too boring. Like fitting the fuel pipe brackets (5 of them) and fitting the drainage pipes for the sunroof, and fitting the little brackety thing for the r4ear view mirror.
I have also been offering up the new aluminium sun roof box that we had made as the old steel one was rotten..
The problem with the sunroof is that it does not feature in either the workshop manual or parts book, so I’m havine to rely on examining the old and very horrid rusty one to work out how it works.
The engine is looking good – a couple of little problems solved themselves by taking bits off the spare engine, (the sump and cam shaft.)
A big and very pleasant surprise was to see a very old and close friend who dropped by for tea and dinner. I haveen’t seen Clive for some years yet it was as if 20 years hadn’t gone by.
Now, some photos:
