Hi Martin and Jeremy,
Thanks for your interest.
I did rebuild the battery boxes myself, but they are not new fabrications as I used the top half of the old boxes, and re-made the bottoms.
The seccond box is finished now and you can see what I did if you look at the first photo.
Fred.

Hello again,
Project nearly complete, :D shes out in the sun today. :thumbup:
I'll have the new seat in a day or two, but I still haven't located a domed precleaner. :(
I've used half a plastic bucket for the time-being. :lol: :lol:
My last job was making a new tool drawer, see photo, and some pics I took today.
Looking forward to some vintage working day fun now. :thumbup:
