small progress

new back frame has been blasted and repainted, and ive stripped all the radius arms etc to get them painted and back together next week, all part of my cunning plane to have everything ready to bolt back on once the shell is painted.

the back brakes where seized solid, so I tried to push one piston out of the rear cylinder so I was sure to order the right size.

put it in the press, gave it a good heave.....

and....

.....BANG!

now that was seized!!!!

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

A three bar grille and two fog lamps would be far too extravagant :lol: :lol:

That left hand fog light will be quite useful when you are looking for a safe place to stop when you run out of fuel on those cold wet nights.
