A January update

These are a few pictures of work being carried out and some work that has been carried out over the Christmas period.

Ben and Jim giving the wheels a good coat of filler

Not the most comfortable of jobs!

Angles riveted onto the frames over the Christmas and New Year period

The rear drag box is now complete

Looking along the frames from front to back

The new blast pipe now fully machined and treated
There will be a "New Year" engineering report to follow in the not too distant future which will give a bit more detail on what has been happening.

Remember, all of this has been possible with the generosity of people like you that are interested in the project. Without your support we cannot carry on at the same rate experienced so far. Please donate anything you can afford if you would like to see our efforts and passion come to a successful end.

We are also looking at expanding our team of sales stand volunteers, so if you would like to join us, please drop Clive an email at the address below.
