I've been after 1 wheel ideally with a 7.50 Michelin tyre for ages now as a spare, Finally I found one locally and the guy even dropped it off Smile

So the past couple of evening I have cleaned, sanded, cleaned, primed and just now gave it a first coat of limestone.

As this one maybe going inside as the 'spare' I will do the face and the back, so far I've just done the face.

Nothing to report really...


I'm off so doing jobs round the house / garden but still managed to finish my spare Smile


Went to a steam rally the other day and my goal is to get the series ready to drive round the field with the rest other Series we saw, the kids are more excited than me.

Stopped at Garage and my car has moved onto the ramps Smile


So in preparation of it coming home I've had to get a wiggle on to build a carport for the sankey attached to the rear garage at the back of the house that the series will go in...

Tested it with my car (just fits) also will be a wood store at the back...

Still a couple more panels to fit and them move the logs back.

Then stopped on way home as spotted my car outside... It was a Mini Landrover meeting Wink The front wing is just in place as he needed the ramp. Its off so easier to weld the footwell.

^ Yes, however I've done lots of jobs I needed to do before the car arrives back as then I will have no time Smile

Needed to build a carport for the trailer so that's done almost just 2 panels to finish.

Will hopefully be tinkering soon Smile
