Thumbs up

Pete
That's right handy looking! I'm sure you'll get good service from it.
Ignore the yonks of silence from these shores and continue on your mission with the thought in mind that you've inspired many others with this thread. Your succinct narrative and clear, descriptive pics are a pleasure to view!
Good on ya!

Pete, nice clean work as always. I do some stuff I think looks pretty nice but then I see the level of work you do and I'm like "oh, man, THAT's clean."

Guys I am still here (but no longer have work access to this site, it's now barred ) and will have updates on the GTV soon. My work and back transport motorcycle has developed engine trouble so that has kept me busy ... plus the family wanted a weekend away .

Keep up the good work.
Pete

Yep ... and now held up on parts for the bike. Apparently a box was lost by the trucking firm ... and they didn't find it until it was too late for my weekend 'work on the bike shift'

Oh well.

Sorry, doing kitchen work at the moment ... nearly ready to paint walls, thus running out of excuses

I promise I will weld or cut something on her within the month!
