What the? dammit, it did snow but painterdave let us inside so spent a couple of hours saturday, and all of sunday with Jodi snuggled down in the spray booth. Mmmmmmm loverly and toasty so thats the good news…. the bad news? I forgot to charge my camera batter. *doh*. No problems, I’ve got that all singing, all dancing wonderful Dell Streak phone ain’t I? I can take pics on that, upload them, could even write the blog entries as i go errrrr…. nope. Phone death struck around midday Saturday, in a permanent way… dammit, insurance claim, but means only pics i got were before i started:-
Whle Jodi dried out I permanently fitted the back half of the rollcage, moving it to the correct angle to fit the harness bar correctly across the seatbelt mounts. which meant drilling tose damn awkward holes in the tunnels either side of the petrol tank, easier from underneath, but with the HSD shocks on with their shorter body length the are a couple of holes that the wishbones now obscure drill access. Anyway, a couple of hours of frustration, skinned nuckles, snapped drill bits and toys thrown out of the pram later, the roll cage is as solid as a solid thing, and all the interior trim is back in place, and the seatbelts are fitted, and clearence for big welshman, harness bar and lotus seats tested. Close….. but should be fine .
So on to the body work and finishing up those rear arches. a lot of tidying done, another day just smoothing out and she should be ready for Painterdaves magical spraygun. so hopefully Sunday coming should see the final pre-paint body work happy days.
And the phone got sorted last night, no dell streak but now the shiney new Nexus S is mine
