More metal bashing....



Just waiting for some heavy gauge bar to arrive so I can finish the spare wheel carrier., then the jerry can support on the near side after that is all the pipe work (and supports) for the taps  (Still looking for pumps and filters)

We'r all looking for pumps and filters :)  I can only think that when the tanks were removed from the trucks probably to sell to Farmers the filters were removed at the same time time and weighed in as scrap as they had no use.

Spare wheel carrier nearly completed, the part that fits on the tank is done and is way for git blasting and etch priming (along with the mudguard supports). Just got to mill a 1/2" slot in the bar that attaches to the spare wheel.

So I started on the jerry can holder and water pipe gallery support and pipework.


A few holes to fill


Hope to pick up a decent 1944 dated jerry can at War and Peace if the prices there aren't astronomical


Won't have a chance to do much in the next couple of weeks as I need to get ready for W&P
