Working on it


ETA: I've left this entry here for posterity, but I finished the restoration and shut down FenchurchCam some time ago.

I've moved Fenchurch over to the garage below my office where I'll be doing the respray and various other bits and pieces, and I've set up a CCTV camera so I can keep an eye on her. As well as acting as a webcam and a motion sensitive security camera, it's also recording a 24x7 timelapse video of my work at 250x realtime. Here's what I've been up to today:

(If you get "This video is no longer available" try again later - YouTube seems to be acting up a bit.)

When I removed the wing it revealed yet more evidence of the dreaded steel-worm. It's going to need a bit of patching where the back of the wing bolts to the body (looks like there's a natural mud trap there).

Here's the live webcam (click on the image for the big version):
If you watch it long enough you're bound to spot me picking my nose or setting fire to something with the welder.
