Rear wheel covers currently in primer.



Thanks to my Dad, we managed to lift "Beryl" onto her wheels for the first time last Sunday.





Now to start on the steering and brakes.

Thanks Richard.

Russ, I got the Hubcaps done by Steamplates.co.uk (pic on their website). Engraving was 48 pound and the enamelling 24 pound.

Hi Russ

Beryl is progressing slowly, been busy with work but with only two kits to go I have a lot of catching up to do. Luckily I have some time off over Xmas and New Year. Pics to follow.
