Last pictures of Pauls Bay.

It was only the other day when i was putting on the Ace cafe entry i realised i had not put on the last pictures of the work i had done on The above mentioned Bay. So i believe looking back i had just completed the front valance. So just the sill to complete and a few cosmetic bits and its back to Paul.
These pics are tha last ones i took and the van went back to paul a few weeks back but better late than never.

Sill ready to go back in.

Tacked in place.

This was either Dave or Tim not Actually sure though.

Exhaust Repair.

Well as you probably know in my last post from the ace cafe on the way home i had a small problem with the old girl not running quite right. she had a couple of coughs and a fart and then a bang a realy big bang & unfortunatley my exhaust was not best happy about reiceveing the increased load of unspent mixture entering it's orofice and at the point of re-fire the exhaust did not find containing such copiace amounts of igniting mixture easy to control, And as such we ended with a hole in my box larger than a porn queen's ring piece after a gang bang.

So i took a look on Vw heritage to get a price for a new silencer, Man what the fuck is going on £107.00 for a box i bought mine two years ago and with the four branch i paid £149.00 for the pair, i understand prices go up but man i could have wept, any way so i thought its no good i may have to fix it and keep the one got, so thats what i did £107.00 kiss my Arse.

Any way i took afew pictures of the repair for the blog see below.

See the swelling thats a back fire & a half

hat do you recon to that then BOOM !

End removed i had to split the pressed seems

It even mullered the inside.

Another one of the inside.

Cleaned up and a knock about to straighten.

Before i used the hammer.

And yep you got it after you clever Sods !

Ready to weld the thing back up.


Not  a bad job if i say so myself.

Tidy enought.

Back in place.

Jobs a Good One.
