We have a local company called Rossi's, part of the same family as Frances Rossi of Status Quo.

Now Tom has foolishly volunteered to take on finishing my bike for me, I've got no excuse not to crack on with the Pop.
He's got a spare set of keys for the bike garage, so can work on it when he wants to. So I decided to clear some space for him by shifting the steel pick-up bed that's been stood in there for ages.
After running the Pop in bare metal for a year, then several years of standing outside Loony's farmyard workshop, it's looking very sorry for itself.
So tomorrow I've got a "man & a van" coming to transport it over to the shotblasters in Newbury, Berkshire. They're going to shotblast all the rust, filler & old paint off it, then etch prime it for me. When it comes back I'll put it in the spare garage, (I've got 3 until I have to hand back the bike one), & I can set it on some trestles & re-fill it.
So I spent the afternoon removing all the lights, reflectors & tie-down hooks. I also took off the numberplate, which was stuck with industrial strength double sided tape. Jeez, that's sticky stuff! Stronger than some of the welds I think. It took me several hours with a hacksaw blade to slice it off, although I've got a new plate anyway, so could've just broken it up. Done now & ready for the morning.

Filled first -the sides are quite wobbly. Then painted, then fitted once the cab's done.

Having buggered my knee at work, I'm off sick this week, but trying to rest it. So I'm doing various errands cos sitting in the car doesn't hurt.
Collected the dashboard frame from the welder in Berkshire this afternoon. If I had any sense I would've taken it home & tried it in the Pop to make sure it still fits, but the powder coater's in the same road as the welder, so I took it straight from one to the other.
