    The angle grinder's been working overtime this weekend.
    Spent yesterday morning drilling/grinding off the front mudguard mounting bolts, then giving it a bit of a clean up.
    Finally got the swinging arm out today, thanks to the next door neighbour and a serious amount of cutting. It wasn't pretty but eventually done the job.

    Congrats... always a good feeling when you finally get the little bastard out. Good that the factory used (sacrificial) spacers in there, so the cost to cut it out is minimal.

    Another 10 hours spent in the shed this weekend.
    Finally got the sump drain plug out with a hammer and chisel.
    Picked up more parts from the powder coater.
    The rest of the time was spent cleaning up a few bis and bobs.

    Ah, nothing like pounding on a classic with a hammer and chisel. Really makes you feel like a craftsman doesn't it?
