  1. Hi Andrew, Yes the triangle plate thingy.
  2. Thanks Richard. We gave some thought to painting the gearbox but we were keen to get it in place to progress on with re assembly. Now awaiting some parts from UK to set up handbrake and final brake plumbing. I am looking for some rear vision mirror triangle shaped brackets if anyone out there has some. Phil
  3. Fire wall components cleaned and re fitted
  4. New plumbing for brakes & steering.
  5. Progress continues with more parts being cleaned and reinstalled in the turret
  6. Last night a big step forward when transmission was placed back in the hull. Lessons learned - have the drive shafts fully pulled out to give as much free space to position the transmission - the 1/2 moon spaces that sit under the transmission can be inserted after the transmission was in place - also easier with brake calipers not installed again to give more space. We are happy with this progress as it is starting to feel that we are turning a corner putting things back in. Still a lot of hours to go.
  7. Elevation and traverse gear installed and functioning very nicely.
  8. Fire wall has been cleaned down and ready for painting.
  9. We had a tidy up and change around in the workshop. Scorpion pulled out into the cold and turned around. All the motors and gearboxes were then moved from the back to the center and the Scorpion pushed right to the back. Means we can now get the digger in and use it to lift the motor and gearbox.
  10. Put her back in the shed for the night and then tensioned up the tracks.
  11. Lovely sunny winters day so what better to do than pull her out of the shed and put the turret back on. All went easier than we anticipated as it was gently lowered over our home made guides.
  12. yes it is taking some time but hopefully light at the end of the tunnel.
  13. Thanks. Slowly working on all these bits whilst patiently waiting on parts out of UK.
  14. More parts cleaned up and boxed ready to be re installed. Before and After.
