Making brackets.........where does the time go?

I've been spending plenty of time making brackets. The most time consuming by a long way - 4 hours - was the U shaped one to support the rear mudguard. Part of this time was spent supporting the mudguard in it's correct position so that it was central and the curve followed the tyre as perfectly as possible. Then it was heating up and bashing the ends so they followed the curve in the mudguard when fitted.

Sunday Scramble at Bicester,Oxfordshire this Sunday - 7th October

It's the last Scramble of the year at Bicester Heritage Centre this Sunday 9am - 2pm. If you like looking at Vintage and Classic cars then this has to be probably the best value event of it's kind in a great setting of a WWII former Bomber Command base. A good deal of the old buildings are now Classic car businesses - Sales, Restoration, Racing etc - and the day is best described as a Open Day where you can walk in and look around. Even more classics turn up as visitors. The site is huge so you definitely need a good few hours to fit it all in. And all for approx £6 per person pre booked or £8 on the gate. Check on their website for more accurate details.
    Here are some pics from a few years back.
