An Exhausting Christmas part two

I'm delighted!!! The guy at Mech Weld in Catford did a perfect job of welding a bit of steel pipe to the plate that bolts to the engine and I have just finished bolting the whole lot together. Althea now has a proper exhaust for the first time. The job Chris had done was so bad that the Mech Weld guy kept it to show his friends. Not only is she quieter than ever but has more power and the cab doesn't fill with fumes. I can't wait to give her a proper drive now and see what a difference it has really made. I'm sure my neighbours will be happier too not having their windows and (as one lady said) foundations, shaken every time I start her up.
