Well, after far too long, work has restarted.
Having returned from our excellent 2 week trip to Scotland with the Barker family and with James off school for the summer holiday, he made a start earlier in the week getting the truck ready for work to restart.
The poor old thing had been sat in a corner of the workshop, getting stuff piled on and in it for far too long. So he spent a while clearing things away and getting it out from its corner into the middle of the workshop and onto the ramps.
He then spent some time getting the seat box and rear tub panels partly ready to strip off. After numerous sheared bolts, skinned knuckles and blood sweat and tears, he had made a really good go of it.
Today, we had some work to do on the L200, but once that was done, we set about getting the seat box out and the rear tub off.
Really happy with the condition of the chassis and all the ali panels. The seat box will need a bit of work, but I don’t think the chassis is going to need much. But, then, those who have said that and then set about cleaning a chassis up with a wire cup brush in an angle grinder will know how this can all change, very quickly … we’ll see.
