OCTOBER - 2009

THE BEGINNING

Managed two half days and one full day on the Jeep. Firstly went through all the loose parts to see what was useful to keep (either again or as a pattern). Removed both wings, grill, radiator, carb, manifolds, starter, dynamo, fan and bolt-on engine parts. Took out as much of the body bits as possible, seats, petrol tank, tilt frame etc.  Disconnected all parts that go to the body (electrics, speedo cable, pedals etc). It took most of a whole day with help from Nigel to remove the bolts that hold the body to the chassis. Mostly the heads had just rusted so much that they rounded off as soon as you put a spanner to them. The next job will be to remove the steering wheel to allow the body to be removed. Visitors for the month were Stan (observing), Graham & Sue with Rubin.
