    I am feeling bad as I hadnt thought how much effort it would take to produces some slats. However I should have known that Grant wouldnt just produce some slats, that he would produce something stunning, after all it is his nature and his talent. What is left for me is to ensure that beer is bloody cold, well done Grant and looking forward to meeting soon to complete the deal, thanks mate. :)

    So who's the lucky bugger who has to drill all the holes in the slats for the pop rivets. Can prove to be a fun job - measure and mark with a tape but check against holes in tray before drilling - the old measure twice and drill once.
    Are they going to drill the stepped hole or just a single hole and leave heads protruding?

    Pretty sure my contract was for "Supply & Fabricate" only........;)

    Always good to help out another KCer, especially one that has a T3 parts tree in the backyard! :)

    Lucky Phil to have drill press - mine were done on the work bench using spade bit to countersink then normal drill = great to see them all appear and oil after you've drilled to save time with touch up on holes :)

    Still awaiting a final sand on my return to Oz next week, and delivery to Phil on the way to Old Bar....:D

    They were included in the sale, and I'd like to think these one off custom items were the "deal clincher" for the sale..........but I doubt it. :)

    I did wonder during the fabrication process, whether Phil would still be the owner at delivery.....:p

    That is a great thread, can't quite put my finger on the genre though.
    Kudos all.
    Evan and Janine.
