Yeah, its been a slow year here too. Just a mount vision, XCFRS, another RC200 (F2), the Lobo, a caygill project started, and I finished the zaskar and hantrax projects from a year or two ago. Lost a Hei Hei and gained a HHKK. Oh and the Backwoods too.

Cr@p, not very slow after all when I think about it :D

It's red. Some slightly better shots showing the handy work from Dan and the tidy finish.

There are some little blemishes where the tubes had been sanded prior to repair and not quite pulled flat and smooth again. Just goes to show the advice to get the finish spot on before paint etc. is given for a reason.

But on the whole the finish has come out really well. When we get some daylight I'll try to get some shots with good light :-)

Next, decals....

Just got my hand on some long crankset bolt nut things to hold the rear dropouts on.

Standard ones are about 5-6mm so protrude from the ~5mm thick detachable piece by barely 1mm into the frame. I figure some longer nuts will hold the two bits together more tightly and be less prone to failure.

I got some long truvativ ones intended for use with bashrings at about 11mm which were a teeny bit too long so when tightened up there was just a little bit of wobble in the system. These new nuts are about 8-9mm long so don't extend the full length of the hole but more than standard ones.

Maybe its all in my head but I think it makes sense.

Likely to be busy doing Christmas for the next week or two but hopefully I'll get some time in the shed while the kids are busy to make a start putting this back together.
