Had to do a bit of rust repair behind one of the hood hinges, but that was pretty much it, the rest is nice and solid:



Can I send my Hornet over for you to do. You dont muck around! Smile Will make a nice car to spin around in over there. How did you strip the engine bay so nice?

Early start this morning to beat the heat and get it done before heading off for the Club Sprint series in the Beemer, managed to get some colour (or perhaps more correctly lack thereof) on the bay. Did end up with one run in a fairly conspicuous spot and a little bit of crap in the paint, but otherwise I think it went reasonably well for my first crack at 2 pack. With +40C temps forecast for the next couple of days it will get a good baking in the shed.

Absolutely beautiful......
I'll follow these lines a little ways more,

Until I can find what I'm looking for.

With the pedal to the metal,

I'm gaining my speed.

Riding down low in my AMC.....

Slightly different puzzle this week, picked this up:



Some assembly required:



Now I can start cleaning up some of the bits and pieces and putting them back on.

Been on a mission building wind chimes in the shed for the last couple of weekends:





The recently acquired sand blasting cabinet is a bit tedious, but it does get the job done in the end. Paint finish is brush applied KBS Rust Seal in satin black. Not 100% happy with the brush finish, comes up really well on the cast iron bits that have a bit of surface texture, but you can definitely see brush marks on the smoother bits like the brake backing plates and cross member, might have to bite the bullet and spray these bits next time. Not aiming for show or concourse finish so it will have to do this time around.

And so the re-assembly begins (it's hard taking decent photos when everything is black):




Struck a little problem with one of the upper ball joints when I opened the box:
