What colour paint you using will, I opted for a tin of Massey industrial yellow from my local Massey dealers John


I finally remembered to write it down, and bring it home.

Update.


Re bushed the front axle. Cleaned up, primed and painted all the nuts/bolts.
Did a bunch of painting.

P1010245.JPG

The brake, PTO, gear shift, and diff lock linkage rods, which where originally galvinized, I
degreased, washed with vinegar, wire wheeled, and then sprayed with laquer.

P1010242.JPG

Unbutchered the rear fender pan mounting brackets, and straightened them out.
At some point, the left side, must have taken quite the blow from the top. Both brackets, where
twisted, and leaning to the left.

Yes, pretty anxious to take it for a spin, but a lot to do yet.

I decided to weld some gussets on to the fenderpan mounts. I noticed, looking
at a picture of Gav's Elf, that his brackets are bent, just as mine where. I guess,
most people board/dismount their nobble steed on the left side, and eventually,
end up bending it. Gav, you might want to do something similiar.
The joint, where the diagonal meets the upper horizontal bar is a weak spot.

Thanks Will I will have a look at that when I get going with mine for real.
I noticed on mine with the mid mounted mower fitted it is very awkward to climb on, there is just no where to put your feet. So I can see how the Mudguards get used as a support/handle to aid mounting

The Green Elf has made its way to Newcastle :D so I will collect it on monday, must remember to take the camera with me!
