Explorer 7 build .

I started this a while ago when I really didn't have the time . I rushed it as usual and then forgot about it .
Its Bank Holiday today so I pulled it out and oiled it up . Not many progress pics for obvious reasons.

Re: Explorer 7 build .

Thanks for the comments .
Well the trem arrived today all well packed and on opening it had a big gouge in it and a few scratches
I'm in negotiations with the seller (it was a new FR) right now so this could be quite fortunate in a twisty evil way .
