After about a 6 month break, finally got back on with some stuff.
Oil lines done and alternator mounted, 2 pretty big hurdles overcome.
Pics in my gallery on here.
Don't laugh at the welding, bought a Tig off ebay and had about 2 hours lessons!

Looks better than my welding, even if it's not as pretty as the inside of a jet engine weld I bet it's still far stronger than it'll ever need to be :)

Glad you've got back on it, when do you think it'll be ready ball park??

Haven't even got a ball park to be honest. I think about 200 more hours should do it but when I can fit them in is another matter!

If you didn't live so far away I'd come round for moral support, I know the feeling.

We need to get more involved with lending a hand with other members projects, it's hard work trying to do it all on your own, not physically, just finding the motivation to get past each hurdle!

Just think "It'll be awesome when finished, awesome when finished, awesome when finished" :)

Lol, cheers Russ. I do keep thinking that, especially after declaring SORN for the 3rd time :eek:
