Flickr:
Tried to log into the account I set up using their iOS App and tried every I could think of but no luck.
You would thing that would be simple, but anything Yahoo obviously isn't and I really REALLY cannot be bothered any longer!
Google Photos:
No way of embedding photos, just links.

I really cannot be arsed to download all of the relevant Google photos right now, BUT may do so once I've calmed down and steam out the ear holes ceases.

Someone please tell me what I am missing here.

Geoff - Pissed of I most certainly am!

I have to log into my Flickr account by logging into Yahoo. Pointless really, as I don't use Yahoo otherwise.

P45.

I walked away from Yahoo when they killed the Groups.

Geoff - Some with Flickr now as wełl.

What's wrong with postimage? It also accepted all the photos I had on photobucket with a single command.

Peter,
Oops haven't been on the Forum for a few months due to health.
Tried Postimage but for some reason we just couldn't get along, as happens when friends introduce you to someone.
However, the new owners of Photobucket have come to their senses following the utter greed fiasco and resultant bad press the original owners generated.
I will now be uploading pictures and will update my Thread as soon as.

Geoff - I hope/doubt 'new' P'bucket will make the same mistake.

Thank you to the the new owners of Photobucket.
You at least realised the damage the old guard did to thousands of Forums when they became members of the Ransomware Brigade.

Time for an update, starting with the Front Mud Wings/Shields, both OS and NS, as repairs where virtually identical.
Uploads are taking ages as usual so thought I would add whatever had uploaded, as the others are just showing patched holes and under coated when finished, and will add these later.











Geoff - I would think most/all Forums are breathing a sigh of relief.

The holes mentioned patched using TIG with a few swipes with a body file and a little hammer and dolly work resulted in no filler needed.











Geoff - Next will be the NS Inner Arch repair

Hello Geoff. Good to see you up, about and posting again. I guess that the monthly rates at PB will begin to climb in the future. I would wager that one day You-Tube will be by subscription.

With reference to magnets. I have a range of "welding magnets" some used as tool holders and one that is on the top of the pedestal drill. It looks after the chuck key and drill gauge for me.

Update

Mounted on the Workbench bolted to those two lengths of square tube.


That magnet holding the LED in place was replaced with one used for Dial Indicators and so much more powerful.


Enough light I hope for grinding.


Geoff - Time for a breather I think

Cylinder block slicing

I got hold of two scrap cylinder blocks, early and late castings, so that I could slice them up not only see where they differed, but more importantly with the later block, to see where all the metal was and wasn't to help me decide where to grind when doing the ports.

Slicing CylinderBlock

Geoff - Last one for now.

NS Inner Rear Wheel Arch

Photos of the complete process replacing all the bad metal and patches to accompany the video posted previously but added here.

Cut this section out to make it easy to use.







Next bodywork will be to finally do the actual B-post repair.

Geoff - That's really it for today.
