January 2020 – A new year, a new phase
A slow start to the year due to the festive break and member’s holidays, however work continued on fabrication the starting mechanism which will allow a handle start via a chain driven sprocket on the engine flywheel, early February.
The grant for phase two, the coachwork of our project, funded by the GVC Fund, administered by Foundation Scotland, hit our bank over the festive break. These funds allowed us to procure sheet-metal working tools, wood and aluminium sheet for this phase. We also sold the Riley 9 rotax switch to add to our funds. A start was made on the cockpit coachwork to fix datum lines and fixing points for items such as the bonnet, boot, windscreen and cockpit fittings.
