the trolley does look good, I bet that was hard to move on the gravel, - great bit of work, well done.

That's how I like em, the next engine I have to do up is a Hartop M that has been sexually assaulted with loads of paint, so I need to work out how I can de-restore it Very Happy

I bought it at an auction in august looing really rough, got it back to the van and managed to get a spark, and we had it running briefly but it knocked and the flywheel turned out to be cracked, don't think it had run for at least 30 years
