no worries Ed.

So I pulled the diff today - found a pretty decent piece in there, so was happy to have heeded the advice of Galpin and Bobeck in taking it off...was a PITA as it was "GLUED" on to the housing with original gasket and muck from nearly 50yrs.

Put it all back together and Sassy and I went for a spin - ran great, very happy with it...now I need to:
1. Paint job
2. Rear crossmember
3. Sort some electrical gremlins

BUT SHE RUNS - after six months...I am so chuffed

Yeah it's been long enough I guess. I put it on once and decided I preferred no top at all, although I'm giving it another go due to every damn day having afternoon thunderstorms. It didn't take *that* long, but plenty of bolts for sure.

Will see how she handles the commute speeds in "surrey" configuration.

So, not a lot been done lately...since I got the D110 she has been somewhat neglected

But - painted the roof limestone yesterday - and installed the new jump seats as well. Still got a member to do, and a paint job. Picked up a nice brown church roof rack that I can put on now that the roof is painted.

This issue has come up many times in the past.

Got the Brownchurch rack on...I hope that after I tune it up - plugs, fuel filter, points etc and get her running like a top that I will then take her for a "makeover"

Lucy will then be "restored" (yeah yeah I know - need the member done)
