The best bit in the second of Karl`s pics is the glimpse of the wicked 4 branch extractor exhaust.

Bertie was a victim of the "Schutz Commando" (not a crack German army unit) but those beloved of the 3M product for covering bodge job repairs.

Karl informs me that they were particularly adept at sealing original drain holes in the front cross member.

Bertie is now in Karl`s safe hands and will be a true survivor.

1st picture is after Karl peeled down part of the cross member n/side (Oh look you can see right thro!!!!)

Why is some of the metal shiny not brown and flakey?

Next you'll be telling us we all have at least 1 shiny bit if we grind enough :wink:
