Pinstriping ...

By sut68      
As I didn't get many shots of the Green Arrow in service, this will have to serve as my tribute to the broken machine. This bloke worked tirelessly [as did others] to get her sparklingly clean for the days' service.

Feel free to comment as you wish, have a great day and an even better weekend ... cheers for looking in.

It's the little details that make this such a joy to look at Paul. The bucket and little bit of sock add so much.

And the crop is perfect Wink

Lovely. And like the reflections suggesting he has not an easy job.

Classy as usual mate. Showing my ignorance now, what has happened to damage her?

Cheers Glynnis and Phil. Basically she's got some cracked tubes in her boiler Phil, to repair them could take up to 8 weeks but she's only got 3 weeks left on her boiler certificate, so it's been decided to put her on static display from now on. Don't worry mate, it's not ignorance, just that hanging around them every now and again, you pick up snippets of info.
