What's your plans on the A/C? Are you sacking it all off and binning the pipes or intent on making it work another 5 minutes? LOL

I know some of you young lads like your ICE but I don't care that much.

The PO had something in there but he had removed all the expensive stuff.

He did leave me with half the national grid in ridiculously thick cable.
I am now using it as an earth lead for the welder.


It did leave me with a hole in the bulkhead to sort out.




I cut a plug of metal to fill the hole




Welded it in and fettled it




I will have to paint the bay soon.

I am just on with the cabbage cannon as we speak Ninja Wink

Oh, it was a cup of coffee I was imprisoned for.
The British empire wasn't built on coffee.
I never made that drink, your honour.

I haven't posted in several months on the site as I've been away but felt compelled so say how amazed I am at Teaboy's 6, 911 and shed threads.

Utterly epic work! Thumbs up

Definite theme recurring of 'it didn't quite fit but after some fettling it was fine' LOL

I have not had much time on the six of late.
been too preoccupied with bricks.

I welded up the remaining holes in the bulkhead today, which are no longer needed.

Blown the budget on a couple of new windows for the palace.
Got a local guy to make them. His work was quite good.
The blokes he had fit them were not quite so good. Got them sorted in the end.



I had them made to be as close a copy of the originals as possible, but with double glazed units.



Cost more than the 6Roll eyes



Got to get the windows painted before I can paint the engine bay.

I make windows like that sometimes, are the Double glazed units held in by Putty pointing?, if so be careful as if Linseed oil Putty has been used it will attack the double glazed units seals and they eventually start misting up, better to use hardwood timber beads (wont rot) with the units bedded in butyl putty or low modulus neutral cure silicone (ordinary silicone also attacks the seals)., apart from that window looks well Thumbs up

It is.
The glazing company (not the joiners) put the units in with putty.
You would have thought they would know what it will do?Roll eyes

Did the top engine mount.

It wasn't broken but I thought I might do it as a precaution.


Made a bit, 3mm plate.




weld thru' primer




stuck it in.




couple of spacers




stuck in






bit of primer






Don't forget the bit under the arch where the heat has brought the paint off.




I painted that too.



Now I'm off to a barbie.
