    G'day all. had some luck today. I was concerned that the diff offset would not allow room for the left axle but it fits & has enough plunge

    Good evening all. About an hour on this afternoons job making the upper support brace & brackets for the steering column. the black tube is from behind the plastic bumper on a Nissan. The column is in rough position. It has to go down 3cms to the bevel box.

    Good evening all. these are the little jobs that keep cropping up. the shifter cable bracket off the Tarago fitted on 1 bolt to the bellhousing on the rover so a cut & shout I had to make a piece to weld onto it pretty simple job. I had to run up a nut on the linisher to fit as a bush into the eye of the shifter cable. about an hours work. I found that 1 cable needs an extension made up to reach the linkage on the box because of the route it takes under the motor.

    I had to modify the modified cable retainer bracket as it didn't let the cables run square to the shifter linkages on the box

    I made the tube nut to set up. I'm having a longer 1 made to do the job.

    did a bit today I made up a set of dolly wheels to roll eclectic into a better position to be able to mount the body tilter when the new concrete floor is laid next week. This is the approx ride height

    I dream of a concrete floor , sick of working in the dirt/gravel/grass :(. I do have a tared area along side the house but its on a slope so not ideal, hope to be rectifying that in the new year.

    Good morning all. I have to agree Blunderbus tar isn't ideal for trolley jack use. looking forward to being able to tilt IT so I can do some work without laying on my back.

    Good evening all. I put a small tyre on to get an idea of lift height so far it seems enough.
