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..

And afterwards…

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.
