Well a little bit of a quiet week on the work front, here is a bit of an update:
Car 1 – Chassis is having its second coat of paint now, will be turning it over tomorrow and doing the bottom.
Thanks to the sale of the 2.5 Diesel that came with the chassis we have been able to buy the bush kit so that will be the aim for the next week.
Car 2 – We have removed the bulkhead to assess the wiring and also some rust repairs that will be required.
Rear tub cross members arrived from Paddocks, they have had their paint removed and are set to go to galvanising soon.
2 x 10 x 5 Sheets of 1.5mm ali have been ordered to remake the rear body work so we will be starting to cut them out in the next week and be ready to make up the tub and side sections hopefully before the chassis arrives.
Also ordered is a load wiring from Vehicle Wiring Products so there is a big job looming.
Car 3 – A sheet has been trimmed down that will cover part of the cab which is one of the first jobs to do, then decisions on the way to go.
Blimey, I’ve got enough trouble finding time for one build let alone three all at the same time 🙂
well on car 1 there are 4 of us doing bits on it. car 2 there are 2 of us for now as we are just taking to bits and buying parts. Car 3 is just done on the side when other jobs are finished.
it will get difficult when the chassis for car 2 arrives then we will be doing both together.
All this along with work and other commitments makes for fun times
In order to get my vehicle finished ASAP I’ve had to book most of my annual leave from work as Fridays or Mondays over the next few months. This gives me about ten long 3 or 4 day weekends. I’m hoping that this will allow me to make progress on my truck. This weekend proving the point. I took Friday off and in the last three days have done stacks. Shame all weekends can’t be 3 day’ers 🙂
very true, we are normally productive on bank holiday weekends. I think it should be law to work 4 days and 3 day weekends
