hi Tazio, hoped you would be along.

That's exactly what I was hoping to learn. Spax were the original? Where did you get your replacements please?

Anthony - it is in a queue behind my 21!

Yes, painting the aluminium is a good thing to do. On the 21, Rob is also going to apply silicone along the joints  between panels and frame to prevent water ingress.

Anthoñy, I am amazed at how good your chassis is, when I did mine, it was absolutely rotten, and required massive surgery, so much so most was replaced.....

Aye it has been suggested she doesn't need such extreme treatment. However, I want her set for the next 20 years, which takes her to 50 years. She looks good because she has been stored since 2004. What sort of life had yours had to be not so good?
