    The last two shots are to save you from getting bored.
    They are of tha absolutely breathtakingly moving memorial to the crew of the first HMAS Sydney, at Geraldton, in West Oz.
    Each seagull in the dome represents a sailor lost.

    The others are largely self explanatory---rust, rust and more f***ing rust.

    There are more, lots more!!

    I'm glad you're getting the hang of it. Definitely reckon the kids made it harder initially by pointing you at a fancy camera. Hands down, one of the simplest ways to get passable photos on the forum is with a touch-screen device like a smartphone or tablet.

    Have any other members dropped in to see your projects?

    Jim, did that car once belong to John Couche? It looks vaguely familiar.

    Not sure. I've been so critical of the bastard that sold it to me, that I'd never admit to knowing, even if I did!

    Struth, the pop-riveted bodge panels were a nasty find.

    And the rivets stick out likes dogs, and any pre-purchase check done with due diligence should have picked up the dodgy work.

    Hang on a minute fellas, remember that this car was done in the era in which they were next to worthless, and by a fellow that was struggling to pay a mortgage and raise kids. His short cuts at least ensured that this example survived. Many others went to the scrappers with less damage than seen here. I caution that a high and mighty attitude is quite short sighted and does not pay respect to the dictates of another era. Be glad that the car is now getting the attention that it deserves.

    Yes, it's something that we tend to forget when looking at a car a few years on.

    In time gone by the main aim was get a RWC so the car could be driven.

    If I remember correctly Johns 11bl was originally cream then, dark green and later Volvo blue so i guess Jim will have seen some of those colours if this was it. Did John have those easyclean wheels from a Slough traction Gerry?
    Wow there are certainly some swiss cheese panels there. Hope it can be improved!

    I've slagged the previous owner off, so, as I said before, although I really can't remember his name,I would not confirm it if I did. He did a "snow job" on me, and he did it without flinching.
    Most of the bodged up repairs were pretty skillfully camouflaged, and the engine and gearbox "worked", although the GB collapsed soon after I got the car home.
    The crankshaft had no spare metal left, and had to be replaced, the timing chain looked like the elastic in your Grannie's knickers New cylinder liners and pistons have been fitted.
    The "Swiss cheese" panels have been replaced, either with new Citroen stuff, or very skillfully fabricated by "The Oracle", and his big Maori mate, who says he used to race Tractions in NZ.
    I am really enjoying the whole process, and appreciate all the helpful advice that has been so freely given here.
    More piccies tomorrow.

    Jim How is the rotisserie fixed at the front and rear? I am curious as I would like to roll mine over to detail the under side and get this part of the car up to the original standard. Did you make your own rotisserie?

    The rotisserie is home made.
    I'll have to get you the details from "The Oracle" as to how it was attached.I do know that he said it madfe everything a hulluva lot easier.She's up on stands again,now.
    Would you like me to get some drawings of the rotisserie if I can?
