No worries, I don't think you can used wet and dry on a mechanical sander? Think you have to use sand paper, then use wet and dry by hand, I use an electric polisher to finish off

Nos just did his ballistic seat pods so maybe he can help?

new'ish roller coaster 1 trailer

collected a trailer for the SR4 project yesterday, many many thanks to Biffer for waiting for me to get down to his place to pick it up, a true gent and great to meet him got back home without a hitch, so just need a few small bits to do on it for now, the it's ready to go, absolutely made up with it
also met up with Rogue Wave while is was in the area, great to meet Stu for the first time, after a slight technical hitch with phone numbers n post codes, but eh who cares, old age comes to us all Stu
ain't Ribnet ace

Great stuff Chris...did a set today in ten minutes flat(hub and bearing) . Such a good feeling to hear nothing when you spin the wheels...

Anybody seen an SR4 trailer sized LHS galvanised mudguard lying around near the A303? :-)After getting the SR4 wet off Fowey on some lumpy sea, I want to be out there again.
That A frame looks good. Might work well in carbon if the design is available to be used??
I have a pattern for late 80's early 90's tubes for my SR which appears to have same hull strakes and transom supports as CC's.

I couldn't hear anything either, but that was due to noise the bearings were making think I was a touch lucky getting back home, but still made it with no fuss
