I`m looking for a 2m section of worn rail and KWVLR are avoiding me.

Chassis righted, back axle, some of the front suspension and the new brake pipes fitted.
It's a pound to a pinch I've used the wrong hole in the chassis, there's a group of four, to bolt the 3 way connector and I failed to photograph the old chassis and pipes! Hey ho!

Brian I do hope your not keeping the brake pipes in situ with those jubilee clips???.
I think I still have some of the OE Reliant clips left.

one up on cable ties which I've preferred cos they don't rust AND they don't chaff through the brake pipes :-)

as for MoT, yep 'secure' , Cheshire , not applicable :wink:

i do like the clean tidy floor, I'm lucky if I can find an area big enough to set my feet own . . . . . .
