Hi Kev,

This is looking amazing! I keep saying it, but this is just like my current Corvette Resto now! My looked like it had been at the bottom of a swap like this!

Keep it up mate, fantastic project!

It's looking amazing! . How the hell did you have the audacity to attack this (previous) pile of crap? :)

I know your finishing off Led's on their way :)
Its been struggle Dave, but thanks to the help of lots of people on here donating me parts it's slowly getting there!!!

When will you have your cool LED frosted type 44s back in stock ?

Cheers Kev

Shipment was meant to be here today. But just been told they not back to work until Wednesday after the Chinese New year. So I am pushing the thumb screws hard. 86Kg of Led's should soon be on their way :)

Kev. Got my Phos. Acid coming soon. How long you dip them for?
it depends on what it is - with fresh acid it can be rapid so be careful, but i put some lampholders in over night and it still hadn't removed all the rust. The acid does seem to neutralise fairly quickly, watch for the effervescence and judge it by that. All a bit hit and miss i'm afraid!!! dilute it 1:3 and remember, add acid to water, not the other way around.

Cheers Kev

More playfield progress. All the insert and GI LEDs are in now and plastics starting to go back on. Hard bit next is making some ramp flamps. Anyone any pointers on how to do make these ?
