The buddy seat looks awesome, are you going to have covering over that screen? You can get some pretty funky plastic materials that you could make into a roller style shutter for it!

I'm getting 2 cushions made like on the folding buddy seat. When the tv's not being used it'll be covered up and the cushion will be held in place with Velcro.

Not much to report really.
The cushions for the tv seat have gone off to the upholsterer.
I was meant to be getting the ICTs sorted today but due to a couple of things that didn't happen, but when I went to get it out of the garage the starter just didn't want to know.
So, I managed to eventually get the fecker off, as the top nut was a bastard to get to, (even the Bentley manual says it's a 2 man job).
Anyway, with the help of Obi-Nomates-Kenobi I managed to sort out that the solenoid worked but the starter didn't.
I might whip the bugger apart tomorrow and see if the electrical connection needs a clean up, I'll get one ordered on Monday though.
Nothing really to show, but here's a couple of piccies anyway.....

The ICT's are on now, but the frigging diaphragm in the rh carb decided to go and piss fuel out everywhere this morning.
I jumped on to Eurocarb and ordered up a new one, hopefully it'll be here in the morning, so then the carbs can have their final tweak.

I've also got to chase up the upholsterer about the cushions for the tv seat.

In the mean time I need to stencil out the design on the side of the tv seat ready for painting.

Hope to have the seat in, upholstered, stained with all the electrics in and running for VoWo.

ICT's now sorted.

71 Early Bay (formerly known as Superdry) - Page 8 Ac4fb1e5

Had a scoot round this morning, really pleased, has made a huge difference.

Had a small issue with Fuse 10 in Worle High St but that was easy to fix.

Need to sort the earth on the fuel gauge and also get the speedo running again.

No, stock pump ATM.
I did wonder about going electric and running a regulator, as they like a nice low pressure don't they?

I did query it, but it has gone from a single stock Solex to the twins and have been told it should be fine.

Had a tinker this afternoon. Went out to just change the plugs but got a bit sidetracked.
Took the rear valance and rear tinware off as I'd dropped the nut from the dizzy clamp. Glad I did as one of the clamps on the exhaust had come loose. Got that sorted and then thought I'd have a play with fitting my breather.
Until I realised that one of the frigging breather's was missing.....
So I couldn't bolt the breather to the fan-housing as the bolts I'd bought were a tad too short, I was a breather sort and the plugs were the wrong type.

On a plus note I got the exhaust sorted and got my upholstered cushions back today too.
So now I've got 2 folding buddy seats.....

......and I can crack on properly with my tv seat too....

Love the colour dude looking awesome, I would personally roll the corners of your TV seat, Err take the corner off and make a flowed curve if you get what I'm on about!

Spent an evening in the garage, listening to the football and fitting the oil breather.

All timed up now and thus was one of the final jobs I wanted to do before Sandown.

Got some riv-nuts fitted in the fan-housing and bolted the breather box in place.
Fitted the hoses and bish bosh.

I then decided to whip off the gales fuel filter and replace with a plastic type.
The bloody pipe from the pump was too short though and I was getting frigging soaked in petrol! lol!

Luckily I had some spare 6mm fuel pipe that was just the right length.

Next is to give it a few runs put and about to make sure it's all ok.
