Well Clouseau, where were you yesterday when another one of my teeth fell out? or was it stolen ??
Monsewer I waaas on holidaye it twaaas Eeeeester!
Today time to refit the grille
So far so good, might even get the lower one done today
Another unexpected rest day! Morning went as normal, but then a little lunch and I’d fallen asleep again and slept through until 1700.
Anyhoo, back to the plan today, grille, lower grille, and then work on the front number plate.
Did the roof again but today its another bloody cold one and a 20 mph wind just to kill my hands and put a stop to everything again!
Back to Wednesday and another windy day. But I must start getting things done. Marginally warmer, and perhaps a little less wind, but who cares, I’ve got my Spyder Gortex Sweater on! Front grille back in place and now a gentle de-dusting wash before work starts on grille lower!
Top Grille back in place
Back to it, I know I have some cutting and drilling but I live in hope that that this one will be easier. Managed to get the lower grille off and now needs a little superglue on the rubber surround. This one I can finish in the workshop.
Badges start to go on the lower grille only to end with a GIANT ? Seems I can’t measure either! and my center point (critical in an operation this size) was way off. Start again, much better and finished up with just one badge to drill.
Ready to fit at last!
TGIF and a bit warmer, and less wind , NO EXCUSES!
All drilled and filed, now let’s put it together and hope the bloody wind doesn’t curtail operations again. Yet another stumbling block so now delicately saw off all the excess length on all the bolts as they are too long to allow the mesh to lie flat.
Bolts cut down
Time to finish that bloody front grille!
Grille now complete, the wind is back but I’ll give her a quick once once over to remove all the top soil the wind has deposited and then into town and see what the auto parts think is my best option for mounting the licence plate holder.
Some of those “press stud” fasteners that fix engine covers, however the number plate now obscures the badges! Well maybe another day repositioning ….. I’ll see
While I’m in town I became a Uber Driver as another fluffy animal hopped in the back seat
Who are you ?
