Saturday 14th

Not much progress today, as it was the AGM at 2pm. A little bit of painting was done beforehand to the rocker covers by applying the undercoat before we had the AGM. After the AGM we also had a 'project' meeting this to discuss the year ahead between the working members present and those who werent! (rob!!). After this meeting we retired to the local for our yearly pint, and also to celebrate the arrival of Chris Tatton's Daughter Lily.

Sunday 15th

3 members present.

Work concentrated on the power unit repaint, the rocker covers recieved a coat of gloss grey and the car park side of the power unit was primed using the airless spray gun we forgot we had! 2 Brackets that mount a conduit box were removed from the old power unit, drelled up and primed. The fixing handles for the rocker cover boxes were also cleaned up ready for refitting. Other work saw progress on one of D5705's cooler group tanks.
