I knew there was a gem hiding under the grime all i had to do was spend hours polishing it, to bad you wont see it but its good to keep them clean.

This is where im at with my tug, i could have given it a clean and just used it but the paint was a bit ruff so it ended up with a full strip and rebuild, so its ended up with new paint, pressure gauge, smoke unit, drain tank and full lighting, next on the cards is weathering  ::)
