Lovely warm sunshine, so got the old B type out and did some work. Fitting the tub in the correct position has been a real pain. All Duttons are notoriously poor in the fit department. This seating tub was no different. I wanted to get the wheels nice and central in the arch, not quite possible but as good as I could. The main tub is about 40mm out of line. So I ended up glassing in a strip to make up the difference. Then I had to pack under the tub to make it sit square. I'm getting there, but its hard work, luckily the tub is a one man lift, its been on and off a few times, keeps me fit  Grin the silver nit is the chassis that the red bit should fit

you can just about see the fillet I added. Sanding, grinding, and fettling in shorts meant a cool shower to remove the itchy bits last evening though  Grin

Bit of a break, Took the old B+ out for a spin in the South Hams lanes, Found an old church, long abandoned and just a ruin, so let the old girl cool down while I explored. Twas a tad warm, eggs cooking on the bonnet. Oh, and a sunburnt forehead !
