Cab roof and Bike Rack

Plugging away with a few jobs while I wait for the panels and the GRP angles

Started lining out the cab roof....decided to make a frame out to support the top...pics later.
 Then started to paint up the bike rack
 Quite liked the pink galv primer
 but prefer the shiny black
Second coat tomorrow

Locker doors

I managed to buy some locker unfinished locker doors at a good price.
They came without lock or panel but with all of the seals so I made a start on finishing them off.
First cut some HDPE pegs 1.8mm thickness to keep a space for my Sikaflex.

Cut some Grp sheet and plywood strengtheners.
Then made up a clamp on the bench to press them until the morning.

Update

Well I have been away for ages as I have had other things on but now intend getting back to the truck.  Just a quick catch up.
New longer stronger springs fitted
Frame for crawl through cut and fabricated
Cab cut out and frame fitted
Aluminium frames for windows cut, fabricated and tested.

I have also sourced an Ex MOD aircon kit to go in the cab.



The truck is now at home which should make it easier to work on.  I have an appointment with the panel manufacturer this week.
