It wasn't always this way...! Hats off to both the vision and the execution - we're probably looking at BoTY 2008 right now...

Thanks MrK. Was hoping you still had that picture.

It was a truly awful build - those wheels :shock: Its a shame the picture doesn't show the rust, siezed BB etc.........I lost all my restoration story pics :cry:

I'm not sure it'll even be BoTM let alone BoTY but thanks for the compliment. I'm well happy with it.
