Part 22 May 2018
Today has been a good day, the grey leather steering wheel cover arrived, and I was also advised the repairs to the rotten body were completed, sufficient for us to finish the fitting the new brakes, skimmed brake hubs, make and install a new wiring loom and fit the body, prior to assembly of the doors, windows etc, ready for bodywork painting. I also managed to finish some work on the wiring conduits, the last bit of sandblasting by my local stonemason cleaning service, “Noone Memorials” of Glencorrib, Co Mayo.
The daffs and tulips have come out and the countryside is looking much happier. Martin and I visited Martin Nyland, the upholstery/woodwork specialist, who is rebuilding the rotten woodwork and making virtually new seats from 2.5 hides of leather (£150 per hide). In total, the 4 seats will cost €2,000!
