the writing on those tubes looks familiar

doing well there Correl, it,ll really "come to life" when you start adding the tubes that give the chassis some "height".

nice work

If i remember correctly there was 104 tubes in your kit

cheers

That's looking good Correl, don't think you'll have much time to watch that tv though - there's going to be a lot of head scratching as the build goes on but it will certainly be worth seeing it as it progresses.

Just re-read that "Big Day" post TT that was a good day and seems ages ago - just look how much things have moved on now. And how much the haynes and number in build has expanded.

Enjoy....AndyH

BOC - Don't do it...

Do what you can to avoid a BOC contract Corell - it'll cost you a fortune. Ask about and see if you can get it cheap without rental. If you where close to Hartlepool i could get you a full size bottle of 80 / 20 mig gas for 30, tis fiddly but well worth it.

I am in cornwall a far way from you lol, I have asked around and it works out 75 a year for the rental and 36 for the gas and if i dont need the Welder any more then i can get a refund of the remaining years rental. I dont wanna use them stupid small bottles out in 20mins and cost 15 a bottle here and thats with discount!!

Spud has built his roadster, IVA'd and on the road.
Handy is finishing his roadster off hopefully in time for Stonleigh in May. Currently at the rolling running stage.
