bay dreaming

d c and c's bay is nearly ready for primer. We had to take most of the body to original paint or bare metal, repairs done and some previous repairs had to be reworked. just waiting on a lower front panel to arrive and be welded in place.

 

some new equipment arriving in the morning! Very excited!

its a bay day(morning)

bit of bay work this morning. D c and c's bus was in for an outer sill but as always its worse then expected and iv had to make an inner sill section to reapair some rot.

 

The afternoon arrived the shortie.

it belongs to lazy lawns in Oakham. it will be used as a promotional vehicle for them. lazy lawns do a cool range of artificial grass, check the web site for some of their funky work they do, everything from a low maintance garden lawn to high profile promotional displays including the grass in the big brother house! http://www.evergreensuk.com/

sanding sanding sanding

feeling strange not having the goofback around the shop

back on with d+c's bay

its a cool early/late camper. its had poor quality paint jobs over the years and its starting to show.

so we have removed 3 layers of paint and vairious primers, uncovered some interesting filler and found a load of rust that had been painted over.

more sanding to come, rust treatment and a little welding.
