  1. As this is only a couple of weeks away now, I was just wondering who else is attending? I know Paul and Darren are. due to a change in circumstances this will probably be the last show that I am able to attend for a couple of years so am taking a cabstar full of Howard's. Make sure you bring your sunglasses, lol , as it's going to be very orange!
  2. It's a ford, what do you expect. Best thing I ever did was to get rid of mine. Lol. In all seriousness though, that machine looks awesome. I'd be very surprised if you don't get first place at Newbury. You certainly deserve it with all the time and work you've put into this.
  3. Free briggs 400 cc engine. Running.

    Ah well if no takers I'll have to weigh it in, got to make some space ASAP.
  4. After selling my car sold as seen and tested, on eBay and now getting taken to court after the buyer blew it up I'm never using the auction site again. Therefore I've got the remains of this mower that I need out of the way. It was running when purchased, all I've done is to cut the rear end off as I needed the gearbox. The rest of it is there( no battery or deck as both were scrap) free for collection from Hereford. It says 400cc on it which I believe is 11hp. Hopefully somebody has got a use for it?
  5. Mower Deck refurbishment

    If it's something that going to be used I'm often tempted to use tetroseal underseal, on out of sight bits. It's a lot less sticky than waxoyl underseal
  6. Wiston Steam Rally

    I allways really liked the look of mk 1 transits however after that bl**dy Ford Focus that I had the misfortune of buying I will never own anything with a blue oval again! Pity the show is so far away as it looks a really good one. Some great pictures.
  7. Thank you Richard. It's machines like yours and many others on here that inspire me to do mine. You're certainly right about the aches and pains, my health in terms of my joints is deteriating to the point I'm not sure how many more of these gems I can undertake, plus I'm seriously running out of room. After this and the Dowdeswell is finished, I think I'm going to have a break from them. My next project is going to be finishing off a toylander that is half done, never one to do it the easy way I'm converting this one to Honda power rather than the usually used invalidity scooters. A GX 200 will just fit under the bonnet with a cut out in the under tray and the bulkhead. The power will then be transferred via a centifrugal clutch to a ride on mower gearbox. To take the extra weight there's going to have to be a box section chassis squeezed in as well. I did toy with idea of 4x4 like the real thing but have ruled it out on space and cost grounds. At least with it I can do most the work in the warm living room rather than outside during the winter in the cold.
  8. Heres the decals fitted. Also tonight I prepped and primed a chain case cover.
  9. Thanks for your compliments. Still a few things to do, including the rotor shaft and chain case, but can now see the end. This morning I applied the decals on the rear end plus fitted the tool box. Photos to follow.
  10. Happy birthday Nigel

  11. Wheel Horse RJ-58 Restoration

    Haven't been on the forum for a while, but I'll be following this with interest. If it turns out half as good as your cub then the results will be amazing.
  12. Due to having a few issues going on I haven't touched this for nearly 2 months. Heres where im up to.
  13. MK12 Villiers

    Are you brave enough to say that to micheala?
  14. Lets go back to the 90'S.

    Liked this car so much that I purchased another one. This time an 1989 car with only 56k on the clock and 18 dealer stamps in the book. Here they are side by side.
  15. Testing out the forge

    I purchased an anvil years ago, believe it or not was at a car boot sale. Big heavy bugger aswell! It took a lot to carry it back to the carpark.
