Working on my bike at the moment, so haven't looked at the Pop for a few days, but tried some paint on the wooden pick-up bed posts. This is a Cuprinol fence colour -"Willow".

Phil the carpenter brought the wooden flatbed back for a second fitting this afternoon.
While he was at the garage he trimmed the end off flush with the back of the chassis & drilled holes for the 8 stainless steel ring bolts that'll attach the platform to the chassis. I've got a large stretchy cargo net, so can hook it to these when I need to carry anything.
He'd previously drilled the holes for the front fuel tank & the filler neck hole for the rear tank.
We measured up for the vertical posts & he's taken them away to sort out.

So the cylindrical front tank is now sitting at the correct height.

Still pottering. Still tidying up the bodywork around the sill & door hinges on the passenger side at the moment.

I really enjoy evenings in the garage, radio on, just tinkering by myself. Beats getting drunk in town centre pubs or falling asleep in front of the TV like most of my workmates seem to.

So half the posties are hungover and other half full of beans and wide awake?  Building hotrods/chops tends to be such a great thing for mind and soul methinks ?

 Smiley My day off today, but several errands to do this morning so didn't get to the garage till tea time.
Spent several hours just working on filling all the little nooks & crannies around the door hinges. Nope, it's not perfect, never will be, but hopefully it'll be tidy enough that I won't be tempted to do it again.

I agree mate. It's a road car, not a show car. Not far off a standard I'm happy with now, just a few odd bits to smooth out & it'll be good enough.
