Thanks I must admit the bel is both very useful as a drying rack and a pain as it is sitting between my plane and my tool cupboard!

Any how some people go to gym in their lunch hour, I cut out holes.....

Would have got more done but unfortunately a client decided to arrive early! Engine is in having a thorough going over by Mr Doug Wood and then we can start putting it all together....

As requested here with a pic of the Bell. I have it on reasonable authority that it could be yours for R150K. It is complete minus Radio/Transponder but will need some seriASS TLC as it has been sitting in a hanger for the past 16 years
