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.

Breakfast Fruits from the Garden

Wednesday morning I picked some fruits from our garden to on my muesli. It was very rewarding considering how little I did to achieve the result.

Also been busy painting more land rover parts black.

Cuckmere

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.

Clutch and spider

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.

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.

Shed Delivery

Today the shed was delivered. Because my back isn’t so great they off loaded it for me and stacked it neatly so that I can assemble at my leisure. ¬†They even went to the trouble of stacking it in the order that I’ll want the panels. Pretty thoughtful professionals. The other pictures are Tigger trying to help me learn C# language to program my Arduous.

Radiator and Gerry Can

I have painted my Radiator gloss black now. It’s looking nice. Also Hannah got me a Gerry Can for Christmas, not my only gift, but it fits here.
