Just a small potter today. I don’t know why but I feel out of sorts like something isn’t quite right but I cant put my finger on it? Either a bug coming on I expect as the kids have been coughing and sneezing for a few days (don’t you just love those little plumbers!) or it’s just my body and mind winding down from a couple of weeks in the transport office arguing with drivers who want their arses wiped for them.
Anyways after he days chores were done I didn’t feel like doing a lot but the weather is good and the landy is on the drive so I thought a paint scrape was in order to remove the layers and layers of loose paint off of it. The army are good at paint jobs, if it needs a new colour you just thickly paint over the old one! Cant fault them its cheap and effective but its going to take more than a paint scraper to get it back to a decent even level so I have ordered some sanding discs to help the job on.
After that was done I decided to have a quick stab at removing the old antenna mountings off of the sides and was pleasantly surprised when they came off nice and easily!
Before the scrape and antenna removal..
Not a massive difference but these little steps add up!
Had an hour on Ebay as well looking at parts for It and have ordered sanding discs, new ignition barrel and a letter from Heritage stating the year of its build etc.
