    Had to drill 6 holes in the new front guards because Peugeot did not pre-drill them for the trim bolts or hood buffers. Coated holes with ZINGA (99,9% Zn) and a bit of body colour.

    Today I installed the rubber flaps (which I had to remake) for the front inner guards, which are intended to keep the mud out of the back of the front guards.

    I also derusted three of the rear brake lines and painted them. I may remake one or all of them, but I wanted to inspect them carefully first.

    In just over two weeks, we will be in Japan for our son's wedding so work will stop until mid-May.

    Great job again Mike

    Good luck with the wedding. Japanese weddings are interesting, we had one last year. Have you folded your 1000 origami cranes yet?

    Fascinating place. Love it.

    No not yet, we will see. It's a civil wedding but there will be a big family dinner and of course kimono shots in a park.....

    Latest batch of plating, including engine hood latch, support mount for SEV wiper motor, three of the four decent used front suspension bolts (spare, but with better plating than the new Peugeot-supplied ones I have installed), and of course the 10 rear side window trim clips.

    Son got married last year in Oz

    Tradition is that family fold 1000 origami cranes for luck. It is taken quite seriously in many families. Bride, mum, grandmum and all rellies folded furiously and mailed to Oz

    Week before wedding. No cranes. Shit, what to do

    Spent week folding furiously, whole family included, also Aunties primary school class. Task completed.

    Mine were the crippled looking ones flying in wonky circles at the back of the flock. It is no easy task, at least with my visuo-spatial skills..

    Week after wedding the mail arrived and we were knee deep in bloody cranes.

    Wedding ( and return match in Japan ) were fun. You will love Japan, especially if you are a foodie.
