I'm glad it's not just me that works like that! I thought it might have been a character flaw

when you're creating from 'useful bits' and 'doofers', it's not always possible to do it any other way, other than 'grow it'.

As James says, it'd take longer to sit and draw it all, than it does to make it fit

Very little progress on my project ....purely a time issue.
I should go back and see how far I got with the pics..but here are a few from its current state, seamed it all up and now needs a bit of a clearance issue addressing, I sort of knew it was coming, but thought it best to wing it and do it on the fly as it were, too much going to to work it all out before hand. Pit falls of a build as you go job, but no problem.
And then fit the panhard rod mountings and air bag mounts on the axle.

When will I get time....who knows....

Dug a bit of lime out, early this year, during that cold snap! Well one of them anyway!

Donít think Iíve dug it out so wet for a long time. We had plenty of snowy days, I managed to delegate the greasing , and plenty of water too! Coming into a flooded job in the morning is demoralising....but we ploughed on and got it done.
