Parked in the badlands of Bedfordshire tonight and it's a bit quiet tomorrow so I've been told to have a steady drive north in the morning, whereupon my next task is to somehow fit a spare "H" frame to the suzie rack so I can store my sheets and sweeping brush and numerous other tranclements up out of the way .

It's a bit of an obstacle course but my pal has to work with it all now and where he is going to stack the finished parts is a bit of a mystery. View attachment 352341 View attachment 352345
Every day is a School Day (I have learnt something)
