bought as a chassis cab
originally used as an aircraft hydraulic ladder
the original cab has some serious rot
so a replacement cab was sourced
along with a heavy duty spec-lift
the work begins
front end sheet metal all removed
followed by the doors and screens
next thing to remove was the fuel tank
the cab is lifted off showing good floors
but very rusted roof
caused by water getting in through the roof window.
Frame is as solid as the day it was made.
a quick clean reveals a tidy motor and trans
360ci on a stand
Trans on a trolley
frame now completly bare
heavy duty rear leaves
Axle stripped and being preped for paint
got a little help from a friend and his sand blaster
frame is primed and looking good
and the rear leaves.
at last I get to apply a little colour to my project
axle in my favorite colour
rear leaves too
even the helper leaves and shackles
The rear end is now refitted
today I started the fabrication for the spec-lift and rear body
200L LPG tank above the frame.
