    Telford 2013 Musings :)

    Post  Ray on Mon Oct 14, 2013 4:58 pm

    My SSM Bros cheers 

    We used to fuse off our ADRENALIN with this topic before a EuroMilitaire or two (I guess there are a couple of threads or even more, some started by yours truly & some by the others Mad )

    So while I AM STRESSING MYSELF with Lt.Weymar to try & get him sorted out in time for Joseph's LVG, & while I might not be coming to compete in the "flesh" with you lot, STILL an International Competition is round the corner & SSM's name & reputation is at stake once more :twisted:so my Adrenalin is pumping up the volume as without any doubt, this is SSM's benchmark where we as a Club, ALWAYS went MOST, ALWAYS competed MOST & ALWAYS won Most on average per SSM Capita lol!   

    So my SSM Bros, in between your STRESS pale  why not stretch your legs & fingers a bit Evil or Very Mad  & post your thoughts, your PANIC LEVEL (for those who are still not ready pale ) what are you working on during these last remaining days & what are you taking with you to Telford  scratch 

    Besides Lt.Weymar who will stand on the LVG's starboard wheel pirat , I will be sending some "old Embarassed work Embarassed " with Joseph & nephews depending on the available garage space for hire in da boxes lol! 

    Viva l'SSM cheers 
    God Wills It cheers

    Tweaking & sandig should be ready & done later today & as I said I'll shoot in progress pics before I proceed to the "Coat" Twisted Evil

    Until 17:00ish (when the LVG comes here) I'm gonna be STRESSED GALORE, after a turbulent brain storming night till bloody 06:00 Suspect & after just a 4hr "sort of stormy sleep" Evil or Very Mad

    PRAY PLEASE pale pale pale

    F-5 still not yet finished, it is fighting back with teeth and nails. It should have been ready 2 weeks ago, but the after market decals(only one option) would not stick no matter what I threw at them. Ordered a 2nd one as I have no option and the 2nd set, somewhat adhered better, still not good and the cherry on the cake - they broke in many parts so it was a jigsaw puzzle assembly of the decals. Still in the race for now!!
