Things moving along, would anyone like to hazard a guess as to how many studs broke during the strip down?

Will pop up a few photos later

The rest............what do you mean??!!




Theres more to be done.....?!


...... but surely Simon you read the prologue post to this thread......stolen from Clive Beattys "Fifty-five years of dirty hands".........


"The 55 year restoration!"


 Grin


As above in an earlier post my body guy has used excuses not to get from A to B I've not come across before....to be fair, hes quit his full time job, moved premises, family issues etc......but seriously, its just been endless phone calls and visits to see not much more being done, there isn't a huge amount to be done bar painting, I am to contact him next week, who knows Xmas is around the corner!

There should be a book of those lines - I'd give it the title "Glad you called..."

So a pow-wow was held two weeks ago, certain heads were hung in shame, damp kleenex tissues were rustled in a manly fashion.

Middle aged faces with hang dog looks gave away the game..........least mine anyways, basically not very happy

 Angry

 Undecided

Outcome?

Its been mostly re sand blasted and the lower portion repainted in protective black paint, the remainder done next week, then its off to his new premises, for further preparation. The aluminium panels have been lightly blasted and a few small welding jobs are required, these are also in the schedule. Who would have thought waving brown envelopes full of 20 notes would have this effect at this time of the year.......Wink

Could 2016 be the year........??!!!
