Delivery of the Dodge went smoothly today, it was dragged from the garage behind a L-R Discovery, out to the road where a LARGE recovery wagon waited for it. The journey is only 6 or 7 miles so didn't take long via the back lanes, and its now safely sat in their workshops. Will sort some piccies over the weekend and drop 'em on here! Being Friday 13th I did wonder if it'd all go to plan Smile

Ok here are a few pics of yesterday's activities..

firstly, it had to be pulled out of the garage and out to a waiting low loader



then we went in convoy over to the resto workshop, 'somewhere in England'. Bit of a squeeze down some of the lanes but we got there ok



And at the farm, somehow the gloves that I'd left on the back step made it all the way..





Once off the back of the tilting trailer, it needed some shunting around with the other haulage guy's Disco to get it into the shiny new workshop



Finally for now, in its new (temporary) home..



A flashback to the early 50s, before its dark green painted faded and crumbled..

Hi

Glad to see it went well, I came past on the way back from my trip and thought I had a glimpse of your Volvo, earlier today, nearly called in but had to get back. I will look forward to seeing her in the shed later in the week!

Did 'Er,indoors like the place?

cheers

Yeah there'll be plenty of visits from yours truly and photo-taking going on Very Happy

PS yup erindoors was impressed with the size of the workshop, the Dodge looks lost in there, unlike in the garage here!

It`s good that you`ll be able to visit her once in a while. So much easier than to be just cut off all at once.
I LOVE the language by the way.....I`ve figured out what "fiddly bits" are, LOL!

Hi

Been working away on the Dodge today, We have got the engine and gearbox ready to be lifted out. All sorts of bits and pieces off, like the pedals, steering, manifold, carb, oil filter, oils (engine and gearbox) dropped and floor pannels etc, and anything else in the way of the engine/box coming out! Taken lots of photos too!

Cheers
