Made some great progress on the Land Rover with some help. Got bits shotblasted, then galvanised, other parts just painted. Dragged it all down to Cornwall in the Volvo, one wing went via Hannah in the Mazda. Also visited the Great Dorset Steam Fair on the way down on the Thursday. then spent a few days building up the Land Rover.
We visited Cuckmere Valley for a picnic and a walk, then we continued onto see the coast at Seven Sisters. It was pouring with rain the whole time so we were pretty soggy, our coats being less than water proof. We decided to go into Eastbourne to see about buying new coats and by chance managed to find ourselves new coats.
I now have all the parts shot blasted and ready for hot dip galvanising.
I now have my clutch pedal box reassembled. I now have the bulk of the bits that I had planned on refurbishing done for the land rover. A spider had taken up residence in the shed, very nice web, shame I had to take it down.
It’s only taken a year and a bit (Since this post). But now we at least have grass laid over what has been a muddy patch for quite some time. Now though we just need some more English summer weather (rain) to keep the grass bedding in.
Today we bought another 5 led lamps today, now the entire house has only LED lighting. This morning tigger was out chillin’ on the did the shed. Last night we went to the fair which is visiting at South Hill Park, we saw a swan and hereon.
I bought some 20 mm by 25 mm bright bar, 0.5 m long. It came in the post, this impressed me, through the letter box. I did a quick drawing of what I was after and got it milled as counter boring the holes was going to be hard without a pillar drill or similar.
