Re: New Traveller Restoration Undertaken

I got the wood from Steve and Tim Forman at Woodies.

They took the time to get the outter graining just perfect....A long wait but well worth it for the quality and fit.

Re: New Traveller Restoration Undertaken

Base preserver/weak stain coat on , Now a few weeks preserving and staining, I will give it three days to dry in between treatments this will allow me to finish painting the panels. Im hoping to end up with a nice light oak colour 1.jpg The second coat starting to bring the grain out nicely 2.JPG

Re: MMOC Van & Pickup Register

As a new member .......
I have found it a bit expencive but so far worth it .
The technical help side needs a bit more moderation but on the whole it seems a worthwhile membership money wise.

It would need to expand somewhat to keep up with other sites but Im sure it could.

Re: Braking bad! (Pun intended)

I have found that the critical area is the hub that the drum sits on . having said that all [new] drums these days should be trued up before fitting the same that new shoes should be champfered to fit ..there are no origianal parts anymore to be had so the pattern parts need this extra work .
