A nice big box arrived yesterday from Mark (gtcse8), which included some of his finest steel work.

It fits perfectly and even includes some modifications I requested. Not sure about the picture of a Jack Russell on it though...

:D , I know that folk knock them but we often use Royal Mail at work when I need smaller stuff delivered to 'remote areas' ie anywhere North of Perth as the 'usual suspects' won't do a next day.

last delivery was a next day pre 0900 and local post office were shocked we would pay £20 for a 2kg parcel, but as the guy was flying to Egypt the next day and needed the kit so there was not an issue for end user .. . . .

Here's some rust proofing stuff, which for a fibreglass car is totally redundant.... :?

Work are having a clear out and I rescued this lot before it was skipped. Mostly 316 stainless steel and mix of UNC and Metric.
