    What, no rebreather..... not even a dust mask? :eek:

    Yes, I can see the extraction on the tool..... but that's only 90% of the dust removal at best.
    And that 90% is the bigger bits that rarely do damage. The really fine stuff is harder to capture, almost invisible, and does the most damage.

    Sorry to be pedantic, but her lungs are worth more than the finished project.. ;)

    Duelly noted with the breathing aparatus grantus (good dad joke)

    For some crazy thinking the washer holes where welded over (no longer)

    THought it was going to be easy but there not round holes

    Great to see the birth of Grimace as it rightly returns to some sort of original form. Great work Doc, certainly this went to the right home....

    Looking good Doc, great to see Grimace getting that smile back.

    I found the deluxe trim from Grimace in the back of the shed yesterday, if interested, it is yours, has no clips, but looks to be pretty straight.

    Cheers, CHris

    I might be wrong but I think the wiper setup is for LHD.

    yep correct bolts, all bays up until 74 had the LHD wipers. 73 was the last year of the LHD-type wipers, in fact my 73 has them :)
