Panels, Locker doors, cab roof and bike rack


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.


Panels

Big day today I have ordered the panels


They are very busy so I may have a wait


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.


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
