Great update as ever Pete. I love the genuine outrage at the end, when they actually destroyed a 'new' (Mk 2) Granada in crash safety tests. I'm in complete agreement - utter vandalism, and shouldn't be allowed :rofl:

shiny things

 

very very happy with the high quality work of Brinksway of Manchester.

 

PLEASE note to get a better finish sandblast and clean all items first. you get better results. nuts and bolts can be put in a parts tumbler.

 

brinksway require clean items but results are well worth it.

Very nice.

 

If you're anything like me you can now have a pleasant evening sorting all the bolts out.

 

I expect you've already made notes of what's what, but if you need it I have a spreadsheet of the size of bolts and what they're from.
