Oh Lynn, donít tempt me! Right now I have one roller roll built on top coat, one roll built no paint, one rear wheel just mocked up quick and another on the way this month! I have no time and so far my painting leaves a lot to be desired 😤

Cladding all back at the other end of the country now, and I have to say Lynn knows how to do a lovely job, considering the mess that I sent up whats come back is nothing short of a miracle Cool

Regardless of the time I would have spent I'd never have got the same finish, well pleased, just need to get the rest of the engine to her me thinks Laughing

The scary bit now is trying to get it back on without damage affraid

Well I can take a few of the cladding on the window seat if you want Laughing its the only "safe" place I can think of currently and it means I can show it off to the locals before it goes back on the engine, which isn't going to happen for a good few weeks I suspect.

Stripped down the siren today and found now why it needs such a huge force to operate the lever even without steam, its got a massive spring on the steam side which seems somewhat pointless unless they expect you to hang a 2kg chain on it scratch need to lap the valve in to stop the dam thing leaking (even though it has a spring better suited to a Cortina Estate Laughing ) and look for a lighter spring.
