*** UPDATE TIME ***
Firstly, I apologise. I've been pretty ill recently (major case of the skitz) and then I've been stuck in work until late etc. Was in London last weekend so absolutely no work done then. However! I do have pics to share and 2x orders have been made which should arrive in time for the weekend!
So let me start with a tastey curry...
The power food that my mister feeds me to keep me going and to remind me that diets aren't all that bad when you're sensible about it! (Yes, still dieting for my wedding dress... about 5Kg still to go!)
Then it was time for packages! ...of which www.scan.co.uk
deserve a slap for this one. Why?
Nice little package yes?
It's very well wrapped?
Remove the bubble wrap and... wha!?
is that a...?
Yes! That's right! All that wrapping and a £7.99 next day delivery charge from www.scan.co.uk
for 1 tiny frickin barb!!! I was meant to have grommets but they were out of stock (or couldn't find the stock) so didn't ship it next day... instead it came the day after and instead of charging £3.99 I was left still charged with £7.99 and actually - thinking about it - I think I'm still due the refund!
Annoyed at this waste I turned to another annoyance... the craptacular phobya rubber shrouds and grommets... these will be the bane of my life for some time. Biggest waste of money and lack of quality control I've ever seen but have to make do with...
*grumbles* and of course I always end up getting my hands stuck together...
A new day... another shop... more goodies!!! Nothing like new shinies to cheer you up!
Some primer, some paint, some dust sheets, some white spirit, some more glue and another £1 scraper!Another scraper Bex!?
Yes... I have much more to scrape off! But this time I'll be armed with white spirit!
Now at first, I tried a few different ways and the stuff still didn't want to come off...
So then I let it soak for a while whilst letting it seep in the nooks and crannies!
Now the horrible stuff practically peels off!
So the next day I decided to get my old friend "Mister Drill" out.. This is all GarethS's fault that I ever got into de-riveting cases! DAMN YOU MAN!!!
I present to you "Mister Drill"
SAFETY FIRST CHILDREN! Hair tied back, goggles on and a handy workshirt... Yes I've chosen a Gigabyte one! :rofl:
Off with the wheels!
And to bits with the case!!!
NOOOOO! Broke ma drill bit :cry:
A quick hunt around and I've found a spare! Huzzah!!!
...then she was in pieces!
Right! Hopefully my deliveries arrive tomorrow, then I can do some more work and provide you all with some more updates! Sorry again for the time taken to rehost my pics and make a post so you know I'm still alive!
