Back again after 5 years!

Post by mtmartin » Mon Apr 16, 2018 3:27 pm

Hi all!

Im martin From Crewe in Cheshire,

i used to be on here a while back but life gets in the way and my 350 ended up in many bits as a project as im sure a few of you might have experianced.

Anyhoo i think 4ish years is long enough for her to be in lots of bits and i am hoping to finally get it back together. ive had the frame and a few other frame bits shot blasted and powder coated plus one wheel??? im in the process of trying to tidy up the engine as it got some quite bad corrosion on the fins but im struggling on how to get the rot out of the fins??? so and advice on that would be gratefully recieved. also any advice on what to paint it with after? I guess any advice with regards to doing a refeb would be welcomed.

Anyway thats where im at right now. so hi to all and im sure ill be chatting shortly.
