Hybrid_From_Hell Posted May 29, 2006 Share Posted May 29, 2006 Run out of BOC Agroshield, borrowed John Ws "last dribbles" - Ta John, now thats run out Ran out of welding rods for gas welding, "Aquired some" (ta Keith) - then run out of Oxygen Made a Cardboard "Mark 1" snorkel top, took ages, ... binned it, looked revolting So nipped to PW Workshop and bought some 4 1/2 tube from Paul W (ta Paul) made a better Mark 2 version, but then b*ggered that up, so went back to Paul W, bought ANOTHER bit of tube (ta gain Paul - sorry I was grumpy ) and made 'Mark 3' version............. I have had enough of it, tinny of Guniess later and thats it for the bank hols, has taken ages so far, and yes the top curve is Stainless (PITFA to work with) and yes its welded to Aluminised Steel, ......so don't comment on some of those welds ! Heres the Part 2 version : Now have to weld up the tube everywhere leaft to do, ......and make the bends underneath to go to the airbox ...... KIN FABRICATION takes ages..Snorkel top is in 4.5 inch verses to tubework in 3.5 inch, gives 25 holes at 20 mm plus drain holes underneath Madness on a silly scale. Yes I have the hump with it...how many more hours ???? Nige Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
