Dear All

Last week after a busy and exhaustive week I have a stroke, I am alive but will not be going to the workshop for the foreseeable future.

I trust you all understand.

I would say in light of what has happened, please discuss with family's and loved ones the signs of a stroke, my parents sat looking at me if I were making a joke. No joke, no hand movement, full face slump and nothing coming out of my mouth, nothing.....

I have to go on with new meds, more tests, and hopefully a stable outcome, but until that time, I am resting and looking daily to the future.

Nameste

My landlord somewhat forced my hand this week, new power cables and dedicated 15A lines for welder and mill. So in being in the workshop I had to find something to do, apart from the obligatory tidy up, and yes. It’s a mess.

I decided to start finding the front end, the Armstrong dampers, fully cleaned and soda blasted, boy were they stinky inside. Drilled and tapped to take metric stainless bolts, all drill and fill bolts zinc phas coating with new fibre washers, assembled and noted to add oil when ready.
Nice and easy and for me a bit of a milestone.
I’m taking one day at a time at the moment, meds are working and next week starts the investigating at the various Cardio units.
Thanks you kindly to all the
Kind words, sometimes one feels they are writing blogs for the eternal out there, nice to know people do read it.
Plans know are simple, weld final plates in engine bay and suspension areas, paint, wheel arch, bay and underside and assemble, suspension, engine install and start finishing the fab work on the front end.
Update next week, thanks

As the rest looks good, think I will paint the cast arm, just to keep it tidy

Doesn't sound much when you say it quickly but that's a lot of work so take it slow and easy. A good tidy up is always a great motivator, I'll have to try it sometime :D

Yes - glad you're feeling better but don't over do it.
