So the rear axle is back on and it now sits back on it's four wheels.

Now to address the bent tubes!

The passenger side took the brunt, with the drivers side looking a little bent from previous outings and so I will replace both.

With all the rivets drilled out.

I could then trim the roof to access the tubes to be cut out. I will then decide to patch the holes or trim whats left of the roof back further.

I also took the roof scoop off.

Next step is a bit of chopping!

Right, so I still haven't chopped the tubes off!

But we do have a new member to the team, so as they say.....many hands make light work!

Progress has obviously slowed, but I'll hopefully get back out there later in the year for a race. Don't worry! I'm not selling up!!

It is my first and to be fair she hasn't been too bad! She sleeps for 3-4 hours between feeds, so only a couple of feeds during the night! Sleep wise, I'm ok at the moment!

Well to start with the car seat fits in the 90 and I've reinstated the middle seat!

Right, so I got the tubes cut out and sent off for new ones to be made. In the mean time I started to grind off the welds and make it smooth again ready for the new tubes.

Old bent tubes

New bent tubes without the third bend!

Still more making good needed, but I have the new tubes ready now which also need to be trimmed!
