Work in progress with my TVR. Manifold gaskets needed to be replaced and of course one bolt snapped off. 8-9 broken drills later and my father can make a new thread.

TFL!

Great picture Maffe! You have captured the moment and the craftsmanship of your father very well in a nice BW conversion. He doesn't look frustrated yet, so he must be a patient man. TFS.

Ah; the joys of broken bolts in blocks. I used to have a Triumph 1850 Dolomite and had similar grief when replacing a head gasket - if you look it up I think you'll find that's half a Stag's V8 engine; and we all know what those were like if not treated kindly...

Anyway, the image is a great piece of work in progress and I really like the feeling of concentration this conveys; you are indeed lucky to have your father around and skilled in these 'arts'!

Good luck on the rebuild and best regards, Neil.

Great mood in this image - the b/w processing for me contributes to a kind of "in a different province of time"-feeling. Reminds me of the work of Douglas Harper (on repairing tractors and other agricultural gear).

Great work! TFS!

A patient man indeed - and a wonderful image.

I put myself through school working as a machinist and you learned real fast how to replace a broken bolt. After 8-9 bits my foreman would be glaring a hole in the back of my head while I sweated it out.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Love it. And the square crop works.

Lovely shot, Maffe though I think I would have pulled back on the clarity a bit and lightened up the skin tones (maybe even whole image) just a bit. But that's just me.
I detest bugs, especially spiders.
