"i learnt not to throw stuff out from that, well not to until I’d confirmed it as junk" No such thing as junk its all "stuff". Partners might not agree though...🙄

Wow Jerry, nice things you are doing over there. Keep the pictures coming as I am just as eager as Steviem to learn from it. Looking at bodywork repairs, Often you see waves in the panels or an area w

Maybe it's a good thing that we will be doing ours this end then,  I have a pot of money put aside for the drive train and would prefer to have that done professionally,  body work can be done and done again until its right,  hopefully mine won't be nothing to bad for you.

Don't know if I've had a good or bad day, turned out passenger fender was welded to the chassis along with a very thick plate,  not sure how Jerry will tackle that one, plus side was drivers seat out not to bad really,  fuel tank out that will go for repair,  im sure the old girl has seen better days

Hopefully that thick plate has protected the frame underneath. My frame had similar on the other side under the battery tray. It appears the battery had leaked acid over the frame and eaten it. Someone then welded plate over the top after the frame failed but didn’t bother to realign it. When I cut the plate off there was a misalignment of about 1/2” between the 2 half. This had put a twist on the leaf spring and the front hanger was really badly worn. 
 

fortunately the rest of the frame was exceptional so I made a new front horn and fitted a new battery tray and it’s as good as new.

Yes bud you are right it is modern, if reqd i could use it again, mainly EC bolts and few unknown thrown in, that halftrack must be a great project, any links to it, no pun intended.

My mate hires out Horseboxes (and his business is booming) and he’s got a little box in each vehicle. It’s not wired in at all and just has a AA battery in it. He does recharge the battery every time it’s rented so not sure how long it lasts. But it’s brilliant, connects to his phone using an App, can locate in seconds, gives him speed, g forces etc. and gives him a record for future use should he have issues from the Police. It’s small enough to be hidden anywhere and isn’t as expensive as a monitored tracker obviously but worth it.
