    The landcruiser heater motor turned out to be a 1 speed. I modified the housing to take the Ambulance type fan with 2 speed mtor heaps better air flow

    A bit more done today the new wiper of a prius arrived I had to mod it a little bit to fit. I plan on heating the plastic to bend it down a bit flatter.

    also picked up a pair of late Patrol door mirrors with flashers I had to do a bit of modding to fit it I will plastic weld bits on to cover the gaps & make a new spacer to fit it straight. good visibility from drivers seat.

    Does this bus have a name yet? :rolleyes:

    If not, “Heinz” is a good Germanic name, especially with it’s 57 varieties of build parts....;)

    G'day all. Happy & better New Year to you all following my build . here's some of the work involved in fitting the mirrors right the 1st time so the mounts don't fail. Start with good material off the shelf. then cut it to suit required angle of the base. then shape & weld ends on the linish to shape of the curve in the door. you will see as I go through the pics. It will be held on with rivnuts & 6mm cuphead screws.

    [​IMG]

    This is for the front edge hence the curve to follow shape of the upper door

    finished front plate
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    this is the rear filling plate
    [​IMG]

    finished job. It needs a fine linish on the bottom edge to let it sit down flush.
    [​IMG]

    unavoidable gap due to cuts needed
    [​IMG]

    solution a wedge welded to top pf bracket then sealed to mirror with black polyurethane
    [​IMG]

    I just realised the plate is back to front on the base
    [​IMG]that's sort of stuff i have to make that takes so much time out of the build. Tomorrow is engine detailing day. I have the block stripped of heads & timing case & sump to clean it.

    Afternoon all. I started fitting the 2nd filler to the left side yesterday. A bit of work involved including the removal of the spare wheel tub. I'm using a long range range rover tank. It's away having the 2nd inlet added Along with a baffle plate & surge pot. I found the fuel spill flap is a modified hg holden. they were dearer than a ve valiant. I had to cut it & make a spacer band to have tigged into it. [​IMG]

    prior to welding [​IMG]

    the original unit at the back/ I cleaned it up on the wire brush It looks like they filled it with magic metal bog stuff .

    I had to remove the spare wheel tub to make room for the fuel pipe

    I cut out the right hands side to allow access to the battery. there will be one on either side. one for accessories & one for powertrain. fitted nutserts to the fuel filler area to screw on the covers.
