Acquired a new ride...

 

(Working toward moving back to NZ permanently so starting to get the basic necessities of life in place)

The smaller end of the size scale is designed to allow fiscal headroom for the list.

allow fiscal headroom for the list.

What a great phrase and even better thinking.

 

I wouldn't worry much about either, it's not like they get checked and in the odd case it appears some inspectors don't even know their Regs.

 

In fact I'd argue the lights are better there than where my ones are which do comply.

I think they officially have to be above the sheerline

Yeap but often that can make them very vulnerable.

 

 

Nice work IT. Buggered if I'd have the patience for that.

 

 

About 4pm Saturday I'd finished the mumble mumble West Coast Brewery Organic larger and thought 'I'm sure I can, lets give it a go' so by 8pm I had 860kg of lead hanging off a old willow branch via some web strops of unknown age, an old mainsheet and a few other bits of old shitty crap plus a small come-a-long. At 8am Sunday morning when I saw where I'd got to I thought 'You utter dick'. I got away with it but it was so so SO sketchy. Older but seemingly not getting any wiser.

]Well, finished my 1st attempt at saloon seating covers. New Naugahyde covers...

 

Room for improvement, but I thought OK for a first try. :-)

 

Looks fantastic IT.  

 

Have you done upholstery before, doesn't look like amateur hour...?  

Where do you get Naugahyde from...?

Thanks Sudden. It's a bit of work, I reckon took me 4-5 days in the end.

The naugahide came from sailrite in the US. It's a bit of a story, but I ended up with enough for this for free :-).

I've done a little sewing before - made mattresses for the boat and van, a few clears and covers, but nothing like this. The next one would be better! I learned this as I went along, mostly by watching sailrite videos on YouTube. Worth the time and effort, saved me 1000's in the end, and now I have another basic skill :-).
