Wheel horse 512-D restoration

Recommended Posts

Well today I’ve started the strip down of the 512 I’ve found a few small problems that I didn’t know about but they are nothing to serious. Headlights and wiring needs more than just connecting, bottom of the bonnet needs tlc the gearbox bolts that support the rear of the bodywork are stripped in the casing with one being snapped. That’s about it at the moment. Next step is to get it all sand blasted to see what the metals like and get off the several coats of brushed on paint .

Looks good Scott, just need to screw it together now, :thumbs:

I’ve had 127 photos printed off that I took durin strip down so I’m hoping that helps . I’ve got 3 more bits waiting to be painted but I’m going to assemble as much as I can .

Going to be a shame to use it, Scott. :thumbs:

 

I’m hoping once I’ve got it back together and accumulated a few pennies I can get a deck and some other attachments so as I can work it a bit .

Excellent work Scott which code red did you go with...

It’s the brightest red the powder coaters do and they call it Poppy Red .
