  2. it's a sand blasting enclosure!

    I dug out my industrial spec 3M filter mask, and goggles and then dragged all the kit into the garden.

  4. Yes, but it is art?

Another dose of paraffin on the subframe and the gearbox start to get them more presentable.

    The shocks on the sub frame don't look too hot, I'm going to replace them. Unbolting the bottom end was easy, but as I tried to undo the top bolt the whole ...
