I have not been able to do very much recently. I had another session of rust removal so there are more splotches of grey primer now. I also managed to uncover some body filler which maybe the sign of lurking horrors. I also have some new screws and nuts to hold the grill surround on with although that took some trial and error. The screws are stainless steel so I hope they will last a while. I’m hoping to be able to get out for a drive tomorrow.


Defeated, at least for the moment 23 November 2009

The seat support kits that I ordered from the states arrived on Friday and I tried to fit them on Sunday. Unfortunately they have defeated me so far. All the wires that attach to the side are the same length and as the seat narrows from the front to the back, they end up being too tight at the front and too loose at the back. I’m checking with the supplier to see if I’m doing something wrong or if my seats are unusual. In the meantime the seats are stuck by the radiator in the sitting room. I also removed the grill and surround in preparation for some rust removal and repainting. There is a patch there that had some generic white paint slapped on and it is showing rust coming through. Some more tools came up on eBay from an 1800 toolkit but they sold for ridiculous amounts of money.
