    well August in France I usually get most of it off so I am at home messing about...I bought this off Silver...

    Trouble is on a winters day it would be nice to weld it somewhere inside...I have a hanger but would be nice to have it enclosed a bit more and a concrete floor would be nice..

    [​IMG]

    so I knocked up a couple of walls and a acrossy bit...

    Evening LEF,

    Top photos :) I like the one I have seen of your pick up being the anchor for a crane?
    ps I like the cats hiding place :)
     
  8. Decided not to turn him over but today I decided to cut the rear axle off.....

    Was a picture of the back axle

    It was quite simple apart from forgetting to cut the brake pipe over the box and I cannot get one of the drums off... :arrggh:

    Here is the gap...

    was a gap

    one last look @ acro props... ;D

    Imagine two badly welded acro props



    ;D

  12. ahhhhhhh so if the move images into a subfolder they change the codes... :thinking:


    so here is the old back axle

    [​IMG]

    cannot get the swing arms off, both bolts have corroded to nothing...

    decided there was a lot of crud in the locker ,decided to make a big hole and push it all on the floor.. >:D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The old tophat the back axle sat on was not very good so decided I needed something meatier...

    [​IMG]

    now to cut it to size without a tape measure or pencil ..[scratched it with a nail]

    [​IMG]

    fits nice

    [​IMG]

    My plan is to make two threaded bars and kinda screw the new beam up... :thinking:

    Having seen the abuse that truck gets, your modification is probably essential. :)
     
  15. In the last two days that's twice you couldn't get something off/apart. Are you ok? :(
     
  16.  
  17. Here is my prototype

    [​IMG]

    here it is welded in place..

    [​IMG]

    Now comes the chassis cutting part ,decided to leave it another day.....

    Happy new year to all my subscribers and may 2013 bring you everything you wish.... :hippy:
     
  18. Finding life is too busy for me ,Sunday is the only day I get off ,unfortunately today was rebuilding my ride on lawnmower engine...its aircooled...

    [​IMG]

    one picture for Silver I have been doing plaster boarding all last week ,in France they screw then onto metal rails ,these rails should be flat ,my apprentice decided to make this..

    [​IMG]

    It just fell off the ceiling.. Botchtastic..:lol:

    Silver Needs points/will pay!

    That's custom fit, some call it bespoke...keep up the good work :))
     
  20. Today I decided to get back under the bus....

    Cut the chassis and the axle...

    [​IMG]

    more yellow?

    [​IMG]

    Now when I cut the front bits the axle will go up at the front and the gaps should be gone...hopefully... :chewie:

    I did catch fire to myself ,again....

    [​IMG]

    Let it burn a bit cos my grinder was in a too good position and I did`nt want to stop ,just for a little fire. ;D

    I will probably will buy this in avril ,maybe just use it as a garden object..
