Lay out all the u/c parts first to check all ready … Ivor has made a great job of packaging all parts in neatly labelled packages.
Some joints to pre form … The ones done in the factory have set the standard ! Very clean .. No pressure !
Getting hold of drill bits like 3.2mm and 4.8mm are impossible in Jersey ! Special order ! So this is very frustrating and holds up progress.

Called for very accurate leg alignment – any fraction out could mean toe in or out later and no chance to adjust
Shaping and filing and lineshing (getting ridof all those awful looking scrape marks)
