Nice work, it's looking good.
Those tail gate locks are brilliant as are your square nuts. I made some of them for my tractor a while back but you have made a better job than I did.

I "lurve" the curve in the tailgate, it takes away the plain flat panel look and I love the hinges as well. I might have to do something similar for my 1939 Morris 14 horsepower Ute when I do the body, although the panels either side of where the tailgate should be appear to be straight, not curved.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Got the king pins done now, turned up a mandrel for installing the bushes. Love making stuff on the lathe. B)


I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Yep, love getting on the swarf - o - mat! Tried using end mills last weekend to open out the holes on sawbench pillow bearings for the swarf - o - mat MkII (my lathe's a little Chinese lathe mill drill) Good fun. MkII is an antique line shaft powered lathe I'm converting to electric power. Really testing my meagre ingenuity.

Still ticking off the jobs, I've been through the steering boxes and made one out of two. Also re raced the gearbox. Just a simple 3 speed box with a huge input shaft.

An update on the C1.
I now have a floor, still to be painted and bolted down yet.


With access to the battery...


All on a steel frame.
