  1. Three coats on so far Bowie and I’ll get some chassis black to top it off 😊👍
  2. Wee update on the repairs...... crossmember is now fully solid, took the NATO hitch off today along with the electrics tow connector. Surface rust only, all grinded down and coated in red oxide for now. No wonder these things rust, to try gain access to the back section is a mare !!
  3. Chassis good, all scrubbed down and freshly coated in oxide. It’s a fix for now and if it gets any worse then new crossmember it’ll need to be at some point. 😊👍
  4. So the rest of it is looking OK, other side will be getting a good rub down too but it ain’t no where near as bad..... just to weld.
  5. The Chassis seems to be in good condition, I’m always having a tinker and checking on things. This weekend weather permitting I’ll get under and have a real good look. So far doing a section repair is winning.
  6. Thanks guys, I’ll have a read over things when I’m in from work. 👍
  7. The rest of it is in very good nick, not sure if my budget this year would stretch to a full replacement but something I’ll ponder for next year. Is it an easy enough job? Went here ver to my mates for another opinion too, I think a bit of fabricating for now is the way to go...... ?
  8. Afternoon guys, so after a tinker and a check I discovered the rear right hand side of my crossmember is very bad. It’s solid everywhere else apart from this section. What would be the best option to repair? Can you buy sections? Thanks!

    Sump Gasket removal

    Go easy with a chisel, I used a small razor blade and kept soaking the gasket that’s coming off in old oil to soften it. WD etc could be used as well I guess. Careful you don’t chip the metal 😊👍

    Best horn replacement

    Hi guys and gals, thankfully I’ve not had to post in a while 😊 just wondering if you guys have fitted a simple horn that’s better than the original as it’s become tired. I seen @Jocklandjohn mentioned a substitute a while back. Would like it a bit louder if possible but simple replacement. 😊👍

    RRC Rear Prop Fitting

    As far as I can remember it’s ok to run it as two wheeled vehicle. Not 100% about the viscous though.

    New heater in the 110

    The timer is ok but you have to set it day by day. The FB page is a real good source of info and they are getting more and more popular. Some are finding it hard to get a true 2kw as most are seemingly 5kw. You can tweak the setting if you get an LCD controller to adjust fuel and fan speed. Mines also has a remote control. So when I want the truck cosy I lean out the window and switch it on to heat up 😊👍

    New heater in the 110

    @pete3000 hi bud, having the air intake inside for me personally makes for condensation. The parts for this heater are decently priced. Ebay is the best way it seems.there are loads of sellers but a few seem unreliable. I used blue005_de on there and didn’t have a problem. There’s a few claim to be registered in uk but probs are not. Just research what you feel is the best supplier. Avoid million.billion
