  1. So heres my adapters ( front only) i braved another print. Unfortunately i havent quite got the air sping pin holes quite right and my support material needs cleaning up ( its fusing too well). However, im now considering a 5mm steel ring at the base instead of relying on the plastic to retain the sping. The plate can then have studs welded for the turret, so it becomes a plasic sandwich instead of using the strength of the plastic to retain the turrent bolts. from memory its a 5mm shell and 50% fill. 15hr print. Stl file: the actual print:
  2. Sorry been awol doing that DIY thing, ill try and sort some pics this week. I may ever retry the print now i have identified why it went wrong ( over heated stepper driver) ABS gives off fumes, so might be worth friggin up an extractor if you don't already have one. My adapter was purely to keep things located top end and i have the added issue of larger spring seats on the rear as its for a 130 chassis.

  6. Does your workshop have its own gravitational force yet? Nice to see what works and doesnt, keep it up!
  7. Proper 6x6 envy now. Whats the plated weight of a 6WD TGB. I'm guessing its over my microscopic 3.5t license? Eagerly watching this progressπŸ‘ Doe anyone know its kept... i may have to steal his axles. Just out of interest how easy is it to source volvo parts? I don't seem to beable to find 2nd hand parts let alone new.
  8. unless mo ventures that way, Im probably the closest. (hemel hempstead). Would give me an excuse to take the bike out for a blast!
  9. Thanks guys, much appreciated. I've got to replace the cam seals, and water pump (cambelt driven) so i think i will use the opportunity to replace the lifters and give it a general spruce up. I'll take a few pics when i do, i lost most my conversion photos to photobucket.
