Wales Trip – Day 1

Friday we traveled to wales, met at some services just over the big river.

We then traveled in a group of three trucks on wards. I managed over 20mpg on the motorway.

New subject altogether, I fitted my newest soft top yesterday as it has all the strap etcs, so felt it might better and I wanted to test the water proofing using the water based stuff. Here are the results:

Not great. Will go hunting for more of the oil based stuff.

Sweden again

I saw this in the foyer of terminal 2, thought it was pretty cool, it is similar to a design that Gavin and I came up with for the Spitfire competition that we entered.

Travelled to Sweden, Kiruna, again. The trip was fun, I got some nice pictures on the flight in.

Galvanising and laning

Today I managed to visit a galvanising services in Wolverhampton for work. I got a tour around the facility and shown the vat of molten zink. I was not allowed to take pictures inside, which is a shame.

The soft top is pretty water tight now. BUT I only partially covered some patches, so thats not great. Now I need to find some of the oil based water sealer..

I also went to laning again this evening. I had spotted this lane and chosen not to try it that time.

Lanes near Holyport

I went for a very short trip in the land rover over near Holyport. I have found a lane which has a vehicle restriction of 5′-6″ width on it. My land rover fits between the bollards!! I have not yet done it, because there was also a road closed sign there, but I will return and do it.

Waterproofed

Waterproofed the soft top, doesn’t it look nice and waterproof? Actually is really hard to see. Especially in the photo. Is easy to feel though, very oily /waxy to the touch.

 The other morning I walked to pick up a rental car from just up the road, this is South Hill  Park.

Civil War

Martin and I went and watched a re-enactment of the English Civil War. It was very good, but the weather was as good as it might have been.
