My visit coincided with some wet weather, something we're not used to here lately. The birds were wet but still hungry...
...and the lens subject to some fogging, too.
The (ex-BMW) electric fan has been fitted to the new car:
Bob considers this to be important as there are always times when an engine needs to be running while the car's not moving. It's spaced away from the fan with some nice pieces of plywood he's cut out with the bandsaw.
Here's something I didn't realise before. Bob's wheels have been the subject of a few posts, but these were special wheels he made for the last BN2 (BT14 replica), and I can't at this time find a pic of a complete wheel. Bob's pursuit of the ideal wheel that's not wholly cast dates back to the late sixties, first with the 'monocoque' wheels, then the split-rim design, but for this car he had these patterns made by someone with a 3D printer:
He then went off in pursuit of someone who spun rim sections to suit. Finally he found them just around the corner from his place!
Meanwhile, he was very happy with the 3D printing method of making a pattern.
