Hey everyone in V8 land. So – what has been happening in the “project inbred” garage?
Well the chassis has been at “Tomsoffroad” getting finished off, and what a bloody fab job Tom has done. He made some cross members, mounted the rear shocks and fuel tank, mounted the brake booster and made a trick brake pedal, fabricated a battery box and body mounts and made the front shock mounts in preparation for the shocks on their way from Summit in the USA. Check out the pics…
And what have I been doing while the chassis is away. I started designing the floor and firewall, cut them out and fabricated some inner wheel wells out of the original Bedford front guards. I don’t have any pics yet – not much to show, but have some of the start of it, which you can see in the above pics.
The chassis is back home now , I picked it up from Tom on Sunday, but not before we wired it up and started the 345 for the first time in a year. I bit of gas and a slight adjustment to the dizzy and she fired up.
The Chassis is back home now and I’m keen to get into mounting the body, building the floor and using my new found skill in welding (well practise makes perfect). Hopefully in a couple of months I’ll have heaps to show you – “project inbred” has been a year in the making so far, but it’s starting to take shape….
