Back from the dead
« on: June 22, 2016, 10:58:25 AM »
So i have found photos of my basket case R65. Some photos when I started and some during the rebuild. I will post a couple here and there as time allows. I had mentioned previously about the engine looking a bit like it had come out of a swamp -  Here she is!
