W55003. October 2017 Update

1st October

The Bubble car has received lots of attention since Friday, with young Ashley going over the undercoated body work and finishing off final filling. The Malvern side bodywork has been wet and dried and is starting to look the part.

The Sunday gang have been busy, the Cotswold radiator filler pipe and housing has been measured up and is ready for final fitting. Some more door hangers have been drilled and tapped. The hangers can be a nightmare as the side profile changes as you can down the door. Hence it may take 2-3 times marking the panel and then opening and closing the door to make sure the marks or the door hangers have moved. Some more door struts have been chopped out, cleaned up and rewelded.

Two of our younger members of the group have nearly completed the second man’s side desk modifications. Doesnt it look good!!!! Well done!!!

The Bubble Car will be 60 years old next year.

The group is making a big push to get the unit out in time to celebrate. Can you help us? For more information email gwsrdmu@gmail.com.
