Kate Reborn!

Below Kate's inside left and right wing following Lee Wakefield's beautiful repair. Spot the difference!

OK, the left side with no obvious join is the repaired side! In the first photo there is what looks like black tape. On the repair side this had separated from the bodywork and Lee was able to do his Super Hero impression and just rip it out. Investigation (and the photo below) show that the join was full of air bubbles - a little worrying for the quality of the rest of Kate :(

And the outside after my efforts at fill-tea-sand-repeat...Not beautiful but it is good enough to get her back on the road. I'm waiting for a new rear tie rod and am hoping to get her back together for a test ride on Wednesday evening...

I'll post tomorrow night with a few more photos of the rebuild work underway...

  1. Oh, the white spots on the repaired side are my dirty fingerprints from sanding the filler - now gone!
