    Go into a news agent and get the editors details out of them on the shelf, free then :D send them the link to this thread as well, well worth a shot.

    thanks mate, keep plodding on, sometimes the fun ends and it just feels a drag, then all of a suddern it comes to gether really quick, be nice to see some pics of your build :)

    tractors had new head gasket, starter motor and bit of wiring made up where the sheep ate the old stuff ... and a fresh tankn of petrol ...then after 40 years standing it was a runner , ( ok i had to free the seized engine and re grind valves , rebuild carbs etc) but was only half a day to get goin, now its all coming to bits to respray .

    sadly the rollers still sat waiting for the workshop to be free, thats gunna be an epic restoration i think, parts just aint available, its gunna be hours spent on the lathe and milling machine by the looks

    will keep you all posted

    Would a polish help darken the colour a bit?
