Trevor Barnwell, Lewis Orrow and myself spend time last Thursday working on 240, some things went well and others need further tools/ investigation.
A brief update on what we achieved:
Attempted to change wheel which has a flat tyre, unfortunately, we were unable to undo wheel nuts, we need a rattle gun or longer bar.
Checked out jack that is not coming down, screw thread appears seized but as far as we can see mechanism is trying to work.
Trevor fitted one of the blue light "inards" he had had made to make sure they will fit.
Removed all of the indicator equipment, switch, flasher unit and front indicators to be re furbished.
Removed all seats to be re covered.
Removed all chrome work, handles, light surrounds etc for re chroming.
Attempted to remove locker hinges but found some of the wooden frames very "ripe" so this will need further investigation/ replacement.
It was a successful day (despite the cold and drizzle) and most of the parts that needed to come off for refurbishment have been removed - hopefully this can be done over the winter so that they are ready to go back on in the spring.
