Nope - not involving anyone else in the project - Dutch labour rates are not reasonable when I can do most things myself.

I have to think ahead a bit because I want to sand blast the grill on top other parts like the inner wings so I get the maximum effect of the sand shooting through those holes!

Then of course once that layer of rust is gone I need to think about protecting it before it needs to go back into the sand blasting cabinet (!)
