    Just taken on a 72 single cab project fresh from a barn in Italy. Won’t be posting many picture until it’s completely finished but will be picking all of your brains at some point!

  13. The last image is of what I pulled from inside the tank. Guess someone syphoning when wrong. The big lump is plastic pipe

  15. thanks!!
  16. Single Cab update:

    It moves under its own steam it doesn't leak and it stops.

    Still needs height adjustment on the front....but you all get the idea
    Just going through electrical gremlins. then it's off for MOT. Thought I'd share an image of current state of play. Needs a good wash which happens on Monday.

    Thanks to all those that mailed/got parts/gave advice etc.

  17. Looks spanking that! Single cab/Doka is on my future project list if I see something come up.

  18. Cheers. Finding all sort of bodgery from the previous owner which has taken time to put right to find the right parts etc. But he owned it from new until it came over this year to the UK.
