It's starting to look really good like all your restorations. This is one of the machines that I allways wanted, yet when I finally acquired one I didn't really know what to do with it so was quickly sold on for a profit.
Can't wait to see the finished result.
If it isnt orange it isnt a rotavator

That's looking lovely. It makes me guilty about leaving mine sparkless for so long. It might inspire me to go and fettle, maybe spend some money!
