Trident G-ARPO 2014 latest

Postby Tony Jarrett » Sun Jan 19, 2014 9:41 pm

Hi All

It has been a very busy first part of winter and now we have got all the seats back in situ in the front cabin after rubbing them all down and painting their frames. All we need to do is refit the lap tables to the back ,reattach the magazine nets and cover the seats with new fabric.

In May we shall be painting the outside with the paint that was kindly supplied by PPG before we move onto tackling the undercarriage legs.

For us to achieve this we need to raise the monies for just two areas and that is for the seat material and also we will have to pay a qualified sprayer to paint it so we get the best finish we can.

We really need all your support on this so if you can help with a donation towards these two areas that we need to raise the money for we will be very grateful .Our website for the trident is www.savethetrident .org

Kind regards Tony and the save the trident team
