Slow progress

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.

Land Rover on Towan Sands

Dave and I managed to locate the series 2 Land Rover that was lost to the beach in January of 1990. Dave saw it in the news and we went and found it.

Weekend in Cornwall

We spent a weekend in Cornwall. No working on the land rover, just a social weekend of relaxing. We had a blowy walk on Godrevy with dad and visited my land rover, but only to look at it.

Sunk Boat

In the Truro estuary there has been a large boat, which I think was lived on, as i had a gang plank. It is here:

The boat has toppled over now and I would imagine is not faring so well at high water.

Land Rover bulkhead project

I have finally gotten the bulk head done. At least there is nothing more that I want to do before galvanising. I have collected and prepared all of the parts that can be shot blasted and some of those will go for galvanising. I have now stripped the wings off the grill, as the front panel will go for galvanising. The wings will get a tidy up and some new aluminium inner wings and parts. I saw snow at my Auntie Jean’s in South Petherton when I visited.

Long time no post

I’ve not posted for a while, guess that not being able to access this blog editor at work is having an affect on my productivity both here and at work.

A couple or more week ends ago I spent the week at Al’s, with Dave working on the bulkhead, Dave and I got the remaining footwell welded in and also got a bunch of patches done.
