Now now, team effort and all that- the guts of the inlets were freed by Rob long before I ever turned up, and part-fettled back to life by the lads and chucked together for the dry build before I was about too. Mention making the new duct to Bill and you'll still hear the faint tremor in his voice and the sound of a cuckoo/tweeting birds somewhere.
We fully repaired the formers and internal structure together in 2010(!) and then I really settled into the intakes last year with a big chunk of work fitting and detailing the new outer skins, before the final fettle and build was commenced which has taken something like the last seven months solid and counting- the last month and a half of which has been almost nothing but me choccie sauce and blind riveting. Even then, Bill's done the snap rivets around the back (some with Jordan) and there's more snaps needing to go in yet for one of the more experienced/up to speed rivet teams to finish off. Just last Saturday, Checkie was working on the gas seal at the back- see, team effort.
For me, the most exquisite thing is that they look, without question, exactly
like they used to.
