Model A - a stand, and a mudguard

A couple of new parts arrived for the Model A last month - a 5" D section mudguard blank - actually a rear, but cut down it will be perfect for the front:

It matches the original rear mudguard and is far more appropriate than the 1931-1949 mudguard it arrived with:

It's had a coat of black enamel. The plan is to let this harden, age and chip by leaving it around the workshop for a few years, then it will look the part:

I've also got a rear stand - an excellent reproduction from the Ariel Klub Slovakia. Apparently Slovakia was a strong market for Ariel before WW2, and there is a great following for Black Ariels there.

That's had a coat of black enamel as well:
