Been a while, lack of motivation due to the weather being crap the mainly culprit!

So, if the framehead wasn't looking too good from the top, it looked even worse from the bottom...


...an aftermarket repair section is 80, and I'd be able to save 20% of the OG framehead

Now even I'm not that mad :eek: I was offered a full pan for 75, 100 if I wanted it delivering, that was solid in all the right places, no brainer really :D

So, today I started dissecting this one, it's like deja vu all over again :lol: ...


...the all important framehead, in very good condition...


...TOP TIP if you have to drill loads of spot welds out, it's sometimes hard to see them from over the top, marker pen dots help no end...


...marvellous...


...even the naps hat is mostly solid...


...only the end needs attention, I intend to repair, reuse, and reposition the naps hat...


...the framehead closing plate is pretty unreal too...


...with some careful dissection I've removed the naps hat closing plate, what's left behind will stay put. This shows the naps head closing plate in what will be it's new position, the red line show how it will be filled in...
