You welded it up yet? 

The boys bought their welders last weekend, but while in theory my generator will run them because at idle the generator has low current it cannot ramp up quick enough to strike an arc.

It has now been moved so the welding can be done along with the exhaust.

Some chopping and thinking later and the box is in. The bumper is all melted from previous exhaust issues.

Some head scratching and some large ish gaps in the joints were welded but for a first attempt at an exhaust from basically scrap im quite pleased.

I am thinking about the end of May Bank Holiday weekend 29/30/31 May

By then we will be able to host 30 people so a larger gathering than the 6 only we have done so far this year is possible.

Camping/caravan/motorhome/car camping are all welcome and can be extended before or after the bank holiday. You are welcome to bring your family and use us as a base to visit the area for other activities.

What can you do:

Bring your own project car or non-car related projects

Sit around and drink tea

Toledo –paint anti rust primer on open rust wounds

Trevi – last year Zel put rust killer on the worst rust spots but they now need filler/paint on them.

Invacars – inspect all brakes on both cars

Cut the grass with a ride on mower

Condor mower needs starting and adjusting to run well

Garden railway Mrs6C has bought some garden railway track and there is an opportunity to lay some out and scoot on her unpowered trolley.

Campfire in the large chiminea – fun with saws getting ready

There is also the opportunity to pick your own project in advance, if I have a cars that you think I have neglected and want to do something about it subject to me getting the parts required in time then I can bring it to the FoD for you to work on.

Dogs, cats and even horses are welcome.

Our farming neighbour is using the main field so you can’t drive in it.

All weather dependent and I will keep an eye out post updates of the plan.

All equipment is dangerous and you must be responsible for your own well-being.

I might try and come up on the Saturday or Monday if a) there's room and b) I've not got a million late assignments.

@beko1987's parents have a garden railway, too! Maybe they would like to bring some rolling stock over and have a play? We can offer track in 3.5", 5" and 7.25" gauges...
