(And as it was, we also got stuck in a shopping centre with no power this afternoon!)
Bloody hell! What variety of disaster overtook you that you had to take refuge in a shopping centre? Sorry to hear that.

Great Pic of the day if I do say so myself Mike :D That Avdel gun was shear bliss to use compared with Rivet Gun and block. Even Dawn was singing its praises when she was wielding the old Avdel gun and banging the old blind rivets home. Its a shame we could not use more of them but we have to be original.

Barry from Grimsby turned up with the end plates one day fully machined from solid and by means we didn't question too closely then Mike set about adding all the nuts, bolts and twiddly bits so it perfectly mirrors the one good reference shot that's been on the computer screen for the past couple of weeks. Very much a solo effort on the part of the anal-widgetry dept. an outstanding result and a big clap on the back for Mickey Bullfrog.

Oh, and the PRC interfay is perfect too...

Agreed, congratulations to all, especially Mike. As good as the original may have been, I am sure this is superior in every way, whilst looking absolutely correct. Brilliant!

Looking at todays pic and guessing that whatever goes over the top will require a crescent-shaped rebate to clear the cover (as well as remembering so many other examples of similar trickiness), I can't help but wonder if Ken had a secret hatred of 'tin-bashers'. :D I find it easy to imagine that he's having a quiet chuckle to himself somewhere.
