Painted

Other projects around the house and workshop keeping me busy but did manage a bit of progress…

Painted up the catch tank and the coil pack brackets.

Fitted those and then put in an insulated bulkhead fitting for the battery cable.

In doing this came to the conclusion that the stainless rivnuts I pressed in for the steering column were not the way forwards. As they’re not flush fitting the column was wobbling even with a third bolt added in for stability. So I cut the rivnuts out and welded in some captive nuts. Those combined with the third fixing means it’s solid now.
