Sidecarland

Man in Shed

After now owning a URAL SIDECAR for quite a number of years attach to my Mystic BMW l greatly appreciate its STURDY construction & road holding capabilities/ground clearance on TARMAC or OFF ROAD also it FLOATS VERY WELL! However now it needs a little tender LOVE!

1Before the LOCKDOWN l had to move this LED spot light from the mud guard above the front light cluster.

The weight of the LED spot light & vibrations/potholes/SALT/WATER my mudguard was in a HOLEY STATE!

Yes we have a spot of bother caused from “Hydrated Iron Oxide” = RUST.

In NORMAL TIMES l would just take off this mudguard and take to my local sand blaster/welder/paint powder coater for repair but that’s now CLOSED DOWN.

PLAN B. Become a SHED WELDER!

l decided not to weld the mud guard its self because l might make things much WORST with even a BIGGER HOLE!

The mudguard bracket that fits underneath the mudguard and then allows attachment to the sidecar frame.

The SHED STICK WELDERS own WORK!!

Underneath the mudguard and the position for the bracket.

Preserve Protect: Car Underseal, Rust Proofing & Prevention …

I have used Dinitrol 445 stone chip protection also used by the MOD & NATO.

We seem to have ILLUMINATIONS again.

A few months ago l won this book at the Panther Owners Club “Chip Butty Raffle”

When you read this book you will learn about SHEDDISTS and SHEDDISM and now l believe that

l am starting to TURN INTO ONE!!!

Bye for now from a man in a SHED.
