Re: Leo's Rebuild.....

Well being we are locked down again, I’ve been unable to get materials needed so … time to do some cleaning up of other bits and pieces. So got the other hinge cleaned up and on for now. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210822/be61eda2f4d39c12b12dfc86fe247091.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2...

Re: WA fb special

Looking good Clint. Bit further ahead than I am. Things have slowed again due to yet another lockdown…. I did look at the holes in my bracket and it appears some one drilled extras to make it 85 x 85.

Re: Leo's Rebuild.....

Today’s fun was to clean up 60years worth of crud of some bonnet hinges I plan to replace the worn ones in the car. So into my benchtop parts washer… just https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210725/a09116d686478a4af8e2ce18067f1b38.jpg Bit of steel wool and a few hours later… https://uploads.tapatalk-...
