As a lot of you will be aware, the 242 Mike Heywood car resides at my workshop these days myself and my mate Dennis doing the car and Mike in charge of the kettle.We can't let him do too much without keeping an eye on him but he does make a good brew these days.
Unfortunately, Dennis collapsed at work the week before Christmas and only got out last Wednesday so he's in dock for the foreseeable future so we need another body to help out. There's not much to do with the car, a new front bumper needs making up for when he manages to kill this one and a bit in the sump guard so no real panic there. If we can find a decent sump pan that'll be engine out but other than that the car is pretty fit. My big problem is a new truck he's got. A box van, 38 foot nose to tail with a 10 foot tail and 9 1/2 foot tall inside the box. We need to chop 2 foot off the top, get the floor out and drop the rear into a boot, fit a new rear frame and shorten the box by around 4 foot, all in the yard over winter because it's too big to come in. Generally we could do with a pair of hands through the season as well.
We do Tuesday and Thursday nights and Saturdays, more if we really need to plus if and when it's quiet work wise i can get a bit done during the day. If there's anyone in or around Rochdale, Castleton to be specific, and fancy being part of the team we'd like to hear from you. Preferably with a mechanical or engineering background but it's not essential if you can get stuck in and have an idea of what's needed.
Give me a ring please if you're interested. 01706 712198, day, evenings as above and Saturday
Thanks for reading this far.
