Smoothing The Rough Edges

The open road is a beckoning, a strangeness, a place where a man can lose himself.

Daryl spent most of the day beneath Marigold on on his back again. He managed to clear out the wiring, brake cables and pipes. Most of the cut edges have been smoothed with a grinder and there is just a bit of tidying left to do. I have to make up some strong struts to slide into the channels at the top corners. Visible rust is mostly just surface rust caused by the high rainfall in the past fortnight. You can clearly see in these pics that I have cut Marigold just ahead of the main strengthening supports, while Kombi #2 was sliced just behind them. This should give me a double-strength join when we glue them back together.

Thanks for stopping by
