It's happening again - why me?

For the entertainment of those members who enjoy seeing a poor soul suffer I have started another web diary of an engine rebuild. This time I am disembowelling and reconstituting the engine from 'The Honourable', my long-suffering 20/25.

Day-to-day progress, successes and cock-ups will be recorded for posterity. Hopefully, the information will act as a guide to some, a warning to others and a source of amusement for the remaining visitors.

The site address is shown below: dive inside and watch the nightmare unfold.

I could introduce you to a smart young lady who is very deft with whips and spikes wouldn't that be preferable? Good luck and sincerely many thanks for sharing with us all. I have known two mentally deformed owners who kept all their activities secret until the finished product emerged. Very helpful for other restorers.

Bill,
Could you sneak her in without management finding out?

I can't believe that it is just over two years since the first post on this thread. Where did that time go?

The latest updates have just been made covering the final stages of the rebuild of GGA27. To see the latest pages go to: -
http://www.boddice.co.uk/boddice3c.html
and click on the thumbnails adjacent to the 2007 dates.

Click "Next page>>>" to advance without returning to the menu.

There is now a section showing the rebuild of the rear axle on Jonas Trachsel's GZU7. The text is in draft form, at the moment, but gives an interesting view of the innards of this rarely seen assembly.

For the whole show, including the rear axle, go to: -
http://www.boddice.co.uk/index0.htm
and take your pick.
