Yay for a project thread finally!!!

Wow @ the rust. Yes- you should buy a shrinker stretcher. I wish I had bought one years ago! Just buy it and think this- once you have finished your resto you can sell it on to the next person who needs one. Everyone wins.

I bought one from Machinery house- I got the double headed one on a stand, worked using foot pedals, because nice to have two free hands. Plus its a pain swapping the jaws all the time between shrink and stretch.

Thanks for that recommendation - that's cheaper than the options I'd found. I'm quite constrained in terms of workshop space so don't know if I'll have room for the stand, but looks like a good Christmas present.

I've been a bit inspired by Project Binky so keen to try doing something a bit different in the load space. I need to change the spare wheel well anyway as the standard one is too small for the spare wheel now it has 12" Revolutions.

Well that is a neat idea and I think we will all look forward to the updates!
