DIY project involving some de-rusting and much black Hammerite.

Did anyone notice the prototype drivers seat? :roll:

Nice bridge in the 8th photo. Somewhere in Paris?

French? yes the general ambience would indicate a Gaelic influence. In particular notice bridge construction and stonework indicative of western European influence. The ladies shoes also are typically French.

This was a very difficult photo to take. The subtle contrast between dark bridge arches and ladies leg shadows needed lengthy on-site observation to establish an acceptable exposure, also the focus from bridge to lady required much adjustment, and hence time, to obtain optimum sharpness.

Overall, I think the time to achieve this photo was well spent. The lady's stance was later repeated elsewhere when much enjoyment occurred by all parties.

HELP.
After the French delights, I find myself faced with an embarrassing dilemma.
My Tiger soft top was past its sell by date and the frame had more rust than the Forth bridge.
Lacking the experienced personnel to trawl over the said soft top frame I opted to remove it and send it to be powder coated.
Its now back looking much better. But having dismantled after a few bevvies I cant remember how the f*** it attaches to the hinged arms in the brass housing.
Can anyone help? A photograph would be nice.
Regards to all.
