How did you mount the mesh to the radiator?

This used to be used on Toorak Tractors in the 1980's & 90's. It gave you the look without the effort, or risk of damage

,Just finished a three day ride in the QLD NSW outback. Dry as a dead dingo's  donga virtually no rivers or creeks  flowing. Had to clean visor at every stop due to bug guts. If there is a market I can package and ship. If there is a market for dead Roo's we passed hundreds on the roadside, luckily didn't encounter any suicidal live ones.

There are also glue-on soft tissue chunks from select mammals, including marsupials and humans. Impress your friends; baffle authorities! Send dead dingos' dry dongas to Amazon for use as packing material. It's paid as piece-work. Payment varies.

Almost! I was away for an overnighter to Oban on the West Coast of Scotland with the "On yer Bike" group that I went to the Isle of Sky with in May this year. It rained the whole trip, that combined with greasy roads and fallen leaves made for a challenging ride through the difficult twisty Scottish roads. There were only a few big moments, a couple 90 degree slides and Steve on the GS had a brush with a Deer, visibility sucked but overall it was still a great laugh and the beer in the hotel was cold. A good 460 miles covered all in.

I did a quintuple take. :-) Even at that, the subject doesn't hold a candle to David's Revive but it is surprising to see it sold as wall art. I guess the 'tweens have more disposable allowance these days. :-)

You’re very welcome, Laitch.

Had to do a double take when I saw this Dave.  :johnny

Close, but no cigar! Thanking you for the kind words. :D

I sold my house and moved out over the weekend. This is the final photo of Revive, at least in this chapter, where it all began. You CAN build a K100 in a 3x3 meter space.
