Done a few more hours today. Gem helped out and started the nearside chassis leg while i carried on with the offside

Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_1091

She did pretty well in the little time she spent on it

Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_1093


I finished off scraping the sealer off the offside ready for a wire wheel. Pretty tricky with me deciding to keep the drip tray

I'am keeping the heater so the drip tray has to stay so fumes don't get in the cab. My first caddy was terrible for it and was partly why I sold it on.

Little update

Dash is out along with the heater matrix. pretty much the whole bay is ready for a wire wheel now.

Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_1117
Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_1118

Removed the sealer around the offside front wing so i could take it off safely without distorting it. Then started doing the inner arch

Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_1121

Same as the bay, i'll get the worst of the sealer off then go over it with a wire wheel. Then its welding time!

Moved the caddy yesterday to a much better workshop
Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_1361

It also happens to have a spray booth in it Very Happy

Hoping progress will speed up now until July when my wife is due to have our first child I love you
Workshops got a little office that might be handy as a nusery though Very Happy

Whoop whoop, progress alert Shocked

Its a bit tight for space down the unit so rather than leave my caddy on axle stands, i knocked up a dolly which bolts on the front wishbone mounts
Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_2123_zps973b7f76

I then removed the shocks, hubs, wishbones and steering rack
Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_2129_zpsd2dc4681

Now i was going to keep the drip tray but i've changed my mind(as you do) so out with the cutter and tin snips

First stage
Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_2125_zps019a7683

Then used my spot weld drill bit, pliers and screwdriver to do the tricky bits. I done pretty good as i only made 1 tiny hole Smile
Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_2126_zpsb74896dc
Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_2127_zps5ac1674d

Worst bit i need to sort is the clutch hole which i'd welded a repair plate over some years ago. Was also bad under the wiper motor support. Being deleted anyway so no big deal.
Caddyrages truck, now smoothing bay - Page 20 IMG_2128_zps81f6b3dd

Thats it for now

I'll be prepping the holes ready for welding next
