You need a fridge in the garage for that.  Plus beers.  Plus for shrinking stuff to get it all back together again.

There must also ALWAYS be the remains of a pizza.

One day I'll be living that dream again. 

You need a dishwasher as well - for castings - we never got that far.  In fact I've never seen one used that way.  Is it an urban legend?

As an aside I've heard of woodworkers having dishwashers but pumping hot oil instead of water to finish work on the trays.  Also of washing machines for tumble sanding.  The joys of self employment away from the world of inspectors and litigators.

We have a small sand/media blasting cabinet for the smaller stuff........will pass on the rest as we only ever do  2-3 hr shifts, but good to get to certain points and move on....plenty left to do!

Front and rear screens out, base of front screen rusted through in places, to be expected, taking the intricate rubber door seal off has been time consuming...each 3 mm screw needing a couple of mins wrestling each! Do the other side on Thursday evening plus remove the worse of the two sills in preparation for sand blasting, we had a bit of a scare when we checked the same sill to find the doors sitting a few mills proud of sill, to then realised the outer section had been damaged and then poorly repaired, thankfully the inner section is straight......so a big sigh of relief.

Also on Thursday a final bit of cleaning, a few recalcitrant bolts to be finally removed with the red wrench! Then my mechanic is off on hols for a week.

Pics to follow on Thursday

So.....a bit of an hiatus, planning for the week of the 25th when my guy returns, intend to free up front suspension units so when it goes to bodymshop, its easier to work on. I will be taking a few 1/2 days so I can get the paint removal off to a good start ( have to use up the remainder of my annual leave somehow!) Do some extra perp to metal work so hopefully only left with lower 10 inches of car needing sandblasting.

One of the 3 possible body men has dropped out, will ask third shortly to see if interested. Hoping also to get a guy to look at headlining in situ to see if he can help out either to make it or re-install at a later date.

A few pics for your delectation.........or is that horror??!!

Gee time passes quickly, not got a lot done recently, just down this evening relieving the car of its headlining, quite an intricate way of applying same and finishing it off.

We thought when delicately removing the same that there was quite a bit of debris falling out and then as we moved along its length we finally realised it was another mouses nest, then found a second and finally a third! Made up of part newspaper, part sound deadening material and other nice soft material, but he/they left the headlining largely untouched....smart mouse! Pics to follow.

We then removed the last bits an bobs from around engine bay and the only repair we've found which was only lightly tack welded on behind the rear wing.

Hoping to get a date for sand/media blasting by end of this week. In the meantime laid my hands on a nice pair of wiper arms with blades to add to the front foglights I got a month back.

Well done tracking down fog lights.

Headlining usable?  That WOULD be something.

Screen frames in patches or wholesale?

Keep at it !!

Got them off Italian ebay, there were two sets, the 2nd set was just over 1/2 price of pair I bought including postage

The headlining is largely intact but in unusable condition so will be a good pattern. Front screen edges at base need repair, rears ok.

It looks as if there have been "Several Species of Small Furry Animals" living in the headlining - I hope they have been evicted ..... or become "Comfortably Numb"

After a prolonged hiatus, doing additional checks on those who might carry out the work and relying on a guy to do me a favour, we finally got the B12 back after its was sand/media blasted, we are all thankfully pretty pleased!

Pics to follow when I get my breath back
