just when i thought i am overloaded, ineveitably i had to re-start on one pending project which never took off initially anywhere.
This Standard Herald was a nice running piece, belonging to one of my friend.
He brought it under the intention of restoring and gifting it to his dad on his Birthday. Somehow time flew and his mechanic made a mess of things and left the car to rot.
The car was handed over to me to bring it back to shape. Having so many projects around, i somehow did not find the right time to start this sleeeping beauty.
Just when yesterday when we were aligning the Morris engine, one frail gentleman comes to the workshop and starts speaking to my mechanic.
After a long chat, i ask out of curiosity who's he?
My mechanic says "He's known as Bombay Tinker" and one of the old timer and finest tinkers around town. 8-)
He had just made a customary visit to the workshop. I seize the opportunity and offer him the tinkering of the Herald.
The mechanic also agreed upon this and requests the "Bombay Tinker" to show his craftsmanship on the Herald. The "Bombay Tinker" agrees upon a timeframe, as he works elsewhere.
So the sleeping beauty was waken from its looooong slumber and one more project kick started.
