So this is how the off-side looked this morning;
These are the home made bad boys going on;
First the rotty one was cut out as well as the “metal” beneath it. All the inside of the a-post looks fine. Old, but fine.
Then the front one which looked fine underneath until I smashed it hard with a screwdriver. Better to make sure there’s no thin metal left.
15 cups of tea (cheers, Dave) and one amazing cheap take-away pizza later this is what it looks like;
I had to stop early as I’ve got plans for the evening (I’m putting on my chefs hat) but tomorrow I’ll tidy up the rest of this side and then start on the other. Which looks like this right now…
