Looking good, so keep at it.
Is it safe to ask how Bob's trike is going ?

Getting older but no wiser! Just using bigger hammers.
The answer to most problems, fire and lots of it.

How's the trike going Bob? Smiley
Can't roll the Pop out at the moment, cos the rear axle location & suspension are dismantled, so I can paint the chassis. Once the body's done & there's no more mess, I'll get it painted.
Not a word from Mr Miller about the doors. He did one afternoon's work on them a few months ago & I haven't heard anything since. To be fair though, he did say he's do them between other projects & I don't actually need them yet. It's handy just having them out of the way for now, but I'm not looking forward to test fitting rough, bare metal doors to that freshly polished cab.
Took the tube back to the welder this afternoon. I think he's just resigned to never getting rid of me now Smiley Also picked up the steel plate the main fuel tank sits on from the powder coater.

So are you driving down to Cardiff doorless to fit the new doors? I foresee loads of pain otherwise...

My day off today, so running a few errands. Over to the paintshop for more aerosols. Still lots of parts to paint. Checked my stock a few days ago -got 9 cans, (a litre), of green, so I'll have some more lacquer mixed. Back to the garage to find I've now got 18 cans of lacquer & still no green. Bugger. So collected another litre of green this morning.

Had a package from a mate in the Irish chapter of The Hoods car club this morning. A few club stickers & a couple of air fresheners. Disappointingly, they don't smell of 50 year old leather upholstery or bourbon, but apparently make good beer mats Smiley

Had to touch in & re-lacquer the bottom corners of the cab where Bob had rubbed through with the cutting compound -not his fault, I think the paint was a bit thin there. So ready for him to do his thing again.

Got in touch with Ifan today. He promised he'll be back on the doors soon. I've got plenty to do, so he's not holding me up at the moment.
Just spent several hours masticking the inside of the windscreen. Bought a tube of waterproof black mastic from B & Q, partly to seal the edge of the rubber where it meets the body & partly just to fill gaps & tidy it up. Took me ages to work it & clean it up afterwards -& hopefully nobody will notice.
