Taking a break from the welding. Dishwasher cleaned the carb parts nicely then some elbow grease and polish on some visible and important parts.[frame]Image[/frame]

looking good! Make sure you get those bits (all pistons and bores) oiled before they start to oxidise. Can happen very quickly once they are cleaned up (of old residual oils).

On to the home straight regards the welding. Thought I'd do some mechanical buts to break it up so fitted the rear axle and suspension:[frame]Image[/frame]
