Hi all

I have a quick question which I hope is easy to answer. Very Happy

Can I assemble and paint the Smokebox before i fit the perch ?

If i was able fit the perch once the smokebox was painted this would mean i could continue with my build, as I am awaiting paint for my perch.

Thanks for any help you lot can give Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hi prid

I can help you there as well.I had to take a flap disc to my smoke box door ring so all the holes lined up so I could get the rivet bolts to go through.
Just be careful not to over tighten the nuts as the threads will strip quiet with ease
