    hi guys, i was trying something with the clock, something that didn't work:eek: was thinking as its different to all the other gauges i'd offset it.

    little bit done today, made a fuel log on a mates mill, haven't really used one before so that was fun, nice to have a job that you can finish and then stand back and look at something done, no matter how small:eek:

    G'day Rob, been reading your thread, shame you missed the event with the A and a shame for Thommos Flattie, but its looking good and coming together nicely. I have been collecting parts to build an AV8 in late '40's style for over 20 years, I hope to make a start next year. Good luck with the rest of the build, I will follow along. Cheers Ash down in Tassie
