Workshop Progress Updates- 2

The original chassis was so badly rusted that it was impossible to maintain panel gaps, this was substituted for a better chassis while the third chassis is down at Graham Robinsons in Castlemaine being boxed and suspension re-worked.


The door hinge areas have been realigned and temporararily braced to allow panel gaps to be set.
The cab was sent to be abrasive blasted and epoxy primed.
This process exposed more rust.




Replacement rear quarter panels and tailgate skin was made, and the sub-rails and rear tray sub-frame are being developed from 25mm X 25 X 2.5 mm steel tube.
I have purchased a tube roller and a tube bender from Pro-Tools in Tampa, Florida, to be able to form the curves necessary to reinforce the structure

  1. nice to see that the technology is having cheaper and that they are doing new things like using wax to fill voids, instead of messy powder (I found it a really tricky job to remove out of fragile tight joints)!
