Hi Jim,

brakes

Hi Dough,yes I am leaving the hand brake off.The main problem is the damp/rust inside the drums It looks like a full strip paint and grease.Still it's good fun as they say,it has started to rain here after a sever frost and snow and it was like a monsoon at times I will try to do more blogging.Cheers+Whiskey Jim.

A break in the weather.

Hi to all,

It seems we are to get a break from the frost but the rain will be falling onto frozen ground which will catch some drivers out, but it might give me a chance to get some work done outside instead of hibernating in the house.
Trying to stay away from the shopping insanity of Christmas it is as if the shops were going to be shut until the end of January instead of just a couple of days.

Cold start.

Hi to all,

After clearing off the snow I thought I should get the old Bedford turning over and let it run for a while just to keep things moving, as a sign of spring the papers for the Kelso rally came in today which is not until the end of May.
But something to look forward to the first run out for the old Bedford!
