Hi All,
Thought it was a good time to introduce myself whilst we all isolating.
I've read all your posts and thought it was best i put my money where my mind was, so order a 2" Burrell at the beginning of the month, with a little help and advise from Dean and Tony T. Think I've almost built one in my mind but sure it will be more difficult than that!
Still waiting for my first kit to arrive but got all my garage set-up and ready to go.
Should keep me busy over these upcoming month's of uncertainty so get ready for my questions when i get stuck.
Wishing you all are staying well and good luck for the future! Smile Nigel

Hi Nigel
Welcome on board, looking forward to seeing loads of pictures on here from your build.
The pictures will also make it easier to understand if you do get a query.
Never be afraid to ask questions someone will have the answers on here.

Good news, I just received Kit 1, should keep me quiet for a while. I've been using Swarfega Jizer to clean things up, good stuff and not as caustic as the Cementone without the rust blooming afterwards. It is more pennies but all I could get as nowhere's open and Europarts did free delivery. Nigel Very Happy

Whilst waiting for paint to dry i thought i'd show my progress and try posting photo'sNew boy on the block! Img_3710
Only trouble i've had was the thread wasn't formed on one of the oiler tubes, wouldn't fit on the hub or the cap wouldn't fit, but Rosemary soon sorted and sent me another. I've got the wheels in undercoat awaiting flattening and Kit 2 finished. Very Happy

Looking good Nigel. I am in Western Australia so with COVID kits are taking a very long time, had to park the engine up and find something else to do with my time. Hope everyone is safe. Nigel C

Thought i'd post where i'm up to; Fed up waiting for issues to be resolved with Craftmaster paint and STW for bits to be rectified, so i thought i would put together all the bits i had lying about.
Still stuck on Kit 7 but progress okay when all put together.New boy on the block! Img_3715 Smile
Put in a box to save it from dust, still waiting for the Large Name Ring. Got some bolts to paint!

Had a great day breaking the heads off brass screws today! Sad
Trying to put all kit 8 parts on so i can seal the fender/tank, firstly broke the heads off the 2 screws that fit into the bottom hose bracket, the holes in the fender are well out making the screws go in at an angle, went a few turns before the dreaded creak and broke. secondly ttried to take out the big screw for the Water Lifter and blow me if that didn't break after 2 turns, good job there is fixings with the Water Lifter. Oh what fun! Sad
Thought i'd fit the Large Winch Bracket only to find the screw that goes outermost isn't long enough to go through all the material Sad Gave UP!

Oh well tomorrow is another day!
