The woodwork is almost complete on replacing the rotten bits, thanks to help from Hugh Milton of www.alisonandhughshandmadethings.co.uk
I have started to paint it grey (so far, just the bare metal that needs protecting underneath the new wood, but its a start), and the wood should be fixed in place very soon. Then the wholesale paining job can start.
Meanwhile, the K2 ladder gets collected this weekend from the paint strippers, and I have ordered a SmartWater kit to mark all the nice shiny nick-able bits. I have also ordered a Jolley Engineering electronic ignition kit for the K4, as I would rather not have to adjust the points in the dark on a 4-hour 12 mile trip on the way to an event ever again!
The new leather straps on the K2 look great, thanks this time to Alison Milton.
