Cleared out the back of the 7cwt Tardis yesterday to fit a rubber mat that I had acquired.

Went Yesterday and fetched a Truckman top for my pick up. On the way back stopped at Gaydon, had a very nice afternoon looking round. Found the BL prototype stuff very interesting and had a good look at the pizza delivery van first time I have ever actually seen it. In the new building you can look down on the workshop some very interesting old rebuilds going on including what looked like a 1920's chassis sporting a straight eight with inboard finned front drums and front wheel drive, not got a clue what it was.

There a distinct possibility looking at the technical drawings. There was nothing by of an explanation, as it was on ramp being worked on were able to look down on it.

Looks cleaner in the photos than it actually was!

I dropped truck man top on my pick up for trial fitting. Some catches from a previous top need to be removed for proper fitment.

Had a look yesterday and today at doing some door repairs on PDA. This one is hanging, quite literally :eek: :lol:. I'll post more pictures on PDAs thread when I'm nearly done :thumbup:.
IMG_20180210_131418.jpg
Today, while freezing to death, I also removed the fuel lines from PDA for replacement, drained the fuel tank into my van minus the lumps of rubbish and cleaned it out, removed the oil and filter and some other bits, while my girlfriend made a start on the interior clean up :thumbup:.

Tomorrow is a weldathon with an early start and late finish :-D
1976 1.3 DL Coupe - Retired daily after 3.5 years, smashed up, now being fixed (PDA 827R) (Lumpy)
1971 1.3 SDL Saloon - Next endeavour (After Kanga)..rotten though (VGV 616K) (Rusty)
1971 1.3 DL Coupe - A Solid project (ish), nearly done now (REW 5K) (Tigger)
1998 Peugeot Partner Chairman 1.4 - New daily, not like a Marina
