    while my Duchess is waiting for spring I’m replacing stuff people do not think of . all the little grommets nobody sees fuel line where it goes into the tunnel, clutch & accel. cable through back , heater cable tube ends , speedo . into the spindle & the end of the boden tube . I plan on doing a lot of trips next year with her & try to connect with as many members as I can . it seems our group is  a little dormant lately I would like to see that change that .

    I did the one for the clutch and throttle cable when I shortened the clutch cable to the correct length. I wasn’t thinking about the fuel line, thanks for the idea. Sadly, one of the previous owners pulled out the tubes and cables for the heater. I’ll probably put them back in when I rebuild the seized 1600 I got for a song this summer. I’d like Maggie to have heat. I’ll have to find the parts. If nothing else I’ll steal them from Little Red, my Speedster replica, her heat is pretty much worthless.

    I’m finally finding a little time to work on Maggie. I’ve got the missing support brackets for the rear apron modified and fitted. Just have a wee bit more welding to do, then I can undercoat and install them.

    Looking good. I just spent the day welding and, man…yours are better.

    Thanks! My secret is a MIG welder. Nothing fancy, just a Lincoln Pro-Mig 135. I use gas, not flux core wire. It’s way easier to make good welds with it than my old Montgomery-Ward buzz box, and there’s no chipping slag because there’s no flux. Just hit it with a wire brush, that’s it.

    Yeah, eventually I gotta up my game.
