me frame and that...
stripped the owld Special down today for a bit of a tidy up (not re-spraying it, I quite like the scratches/dings and history) everything came apart ok...even the detachable floor struts, which must be a feature of this modelUndecided they will be re-welded , and a couple of bits straightened out/repaired. a LOT of road muck, crud, and oil over the whole under body, so a weekend of degreasing and cleaning. but overall, its in good order. new cables and stuff , and it"ll be ready to rock and roll again. seat recovering next...

that's me welding done. I borrowed a welding set of one of me neighbours (Danny), and had a look round his topper VW splitscreen camper while I was on, really nice with some great original accessories. he"s originally from sedberg in Cumbria , and is good mates with steve airie and dan brooks from Trojan S.C. small world eh! ive given him a vespa petrol tank (for his camper van diesel heater) in exchange for the welding kit loan.

as I didn't have a welders mask, I used a wooly hat and a pair of raybans whilst welding....I now sport a bright red face and two rayban shaped white marks around me eyes. not a good look...but me frame is solid as fook now!Cool
