    Man, what a blatant **** over. Topical of our over complicated Paper work system in use, to Hold our hands as we step out side the front door.

    Bloody great build going on. Had thoughts of doing something similar with a Mapleleaf. Watching with interest.

        I've been a bit slack.
        All parts now painted - most in a flat green
        Rebuilt the carbies, gearbox, motor
        Modfiied the oil bath filters to paper element
        Chassis back together
        Spending a lot of time looking for parts that are scattered between the shed and the house - should have had a better system
        Modified the battery box as i have had to fit a booster to the front brakes to keep the govenering body happy

          Signed the doors as a tribute to my dad and grandfather
          The grandfather used to make a heap of one off parts for all the vintage car guys in the area
          I grew up over the road from where he lived, thats where to learnt to weld, use a lathe/milling machine

          Had to fit dampners to the rear of the chassis - goverening body again

                                Very nice, a credit to your fabrication talents. I would of never thought that you would be able to register a "big" rat over here.
                                If I didn't procrastinate I would have nothing to do.
