Project Horse Gut....Nigel and Ians joint project

Recommended Posts

I'd say muck spreader ??

 

You can say muck spreader if you want James, you would be wrong though..

 

 

I wonder where that idea came from. South Cumbria maybe?

 

Which idea is that Norm?

 

 

Oh good a BBQ, now you can make your own coffee

 

Nope, not a BBQ Chris, but it's coffee holding capability's have been tested :D

 

 

Sorry for the lack of updates Guy's, although work has been happening I've just been too shattered to type about it....  Saying that, have an update :)

 

They say there is a first time for everything, for me stripping an oil drum down to bare metal was certainly a first.. Hopefully a last as well as it wasn't fun!

Of course once every last bit of paint has been removed, out comes the red oxide and a coat or two of paint goes back on..

You may of noticed Nigel in the above photo actually doing something :yankchain: , he was painting the center of the wheels red..

What follows red oxide?      International Harvester Red of course :D  Have an arty shot of the inside of the barrel. :)

A detail shot of one of the trailer wheels, it just needs a red pinstripe to match Horse Gut.

The almost finished rig, we just need to find a shovel and get some "poo poo collector" decals made to go on the back.. Expect a PM Mark :D

Evening guy's, here's the last and final update on the Project Horse Gut story..

 

As most of you will know Nigel and I got an offer we just couldn't refuse.... So she went off to a new home..

 

Loaded in the trailer... The poo trailer was taken on a second trip before you all wonder how it was fitted in :)
