Bamford EV1

Post by budda on Sat Sep 05 2009, 10:52

This is my Bamford EV1 with Stuart water pump. The pump pully is awating paint at the moment but I just had to show you as non of my mates are into this stuff. I hope you like it!
PS the pallet is only temp.

Looking good Budda, you've done a good job on it. Can I ask the reason for that colour or is it just your preferance? So will you build a trolley or skid mount it? You'll have to send us more pictures as you get on with it.

cheers Well done cheers

Yes thats the pump I had off of you ryan looking a bit diffrent now though!
The colour is a bit of a family colour, all my grandads steam engines were done in it.
At some point i'll make some trollys for them but first I need to find some wheels that all match and then take it to some rallys. Smile

Great idea for the colour, you know whats coming next lol have you any pics of your grandad's steam engines? I'm sure everyone would like to see them. Thats similar to the pump i'm hopefully getting once things get sorted and a bit of spare time is found. I think there a nice pump and make a good exhibit not to big and a great name, not to common Laughing .

Stu.

P.S. did I mention posting some pics of your grandads engine Very Happy
