You're very welcome, Steve. A boxful of screws doesn't seem much but when they're the RIGHT screws it's manna from heaven and we really appreciate it.

Is the choccie sauce on internal panels just for corrosion protection ?

I was just about to ask the question: Why do you need sealant on that piece? More trouble than it's worth, surely?

Zinc plated steel screws through two different grades of aluminium - it's a two minute job to splash some polysulphide in there and know it's not going to fizz if / when it gets wet. Belt and braces but that's how we roll.

Just wondering why the heat shield was painted? Would paint not blister in proximity to heat requiring a shield.

Good to see the original trailer wheels returning to Ruskin Museum.

Thanks for clarifying.
The wheels 'will go on display at the Ruskin Museum' - presumably when you have built the replica cradle?
Apologies, must have misread the article.

Why let the facts get in the way of a good story?

Problem is folk will rock up at the Ruskin to see the new exhibits which won't be there.
