Panels, Locker doors, cab roof and bike rack
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.
Big day today I have ordered the panels
They are very busy so I may have a wait
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.
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
