This was back at the NEC for day two and it was a busy day again... first off was removing a front wing.... and then the refurb of the rear brakes and accidentally, the rear hard lines! Wish I could have got stuck in a bit more but doctors orders :sad:

Arriving in the morning and the stand looked the poodles privates....
Image

An eye for a straight line?
Image

As easy as that!
Image

A bit mucky but otherwise no rot or rust....
Image

All the tools you can possibly need including the biggest breaker bar EVER!
Image

Loving my NEC purchase... just need to find the right place for it :grin: may need to cross out “sales” as I’m not very good at that bit :lol:

We really were worthy of the award. The effort and technical prowess is seriously impressive, and I'm more than happy to boast about being a part of it!

Most of the pictures I took were to help document Ben's ambitious and impressive dashboard removal. I took a few of the stand though:

The lower picture appears in this weeks CCW with a brief (favourable) comment on the stand and it's appearance as a Class winner.
