While a renovation is going on, it is easy to forget how the different parts looked like before we did order them. Therefore, I have done some before and after pictures to show the incredible difference cleaning, painting and general tidying-up does. Not to mention the feeling of knowing that things work as they should.
We start with the powertrain: engine, gear box and steering gear.
Instrumentation and wiring.
We have also replaced the modern rod antenna with a loop antenna.
Since the holidays are over it is time to start again. There is still much to do before the work is done.
But we are back on track.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
Now we make a break for the holidays, but in January we are back.
