Shotblasted both sides to remove surface rust, then sprayed primer and couple of coats of black QDP POLYGUARD

So do the 'travelling community'. Mate who lent it to me warned me to ensure that it was secure at all times - about £4000 brand new I believe! :shock:

As mentioned earlier in the thread, we welcomed Baz into the yard on Friday morning, sorry I didn't get to have tea with you Colin, (busy out on a repair), but Adam said it was good to meet you.

I have spent some time having a close inspection, between other work, so we can provide a near accurate list of the work required to bring Baz up to scratch.

An email will be coming your way tomorrow Colin, that way you will be aware of the work required.

PS. I gave him a 'cuddle' before I left for home this evening.

Help Needed Please.

I need a new panel for Baz's backside collecting from WS9 8TH (Walsall).
I need to get it to Tim (Kent) ... so need to get a 'trusted relay' organised. :wink:

Anybody able to help?
