Pictures laying down tend to be related to the way the phone is held when the pic is taken. I have to hold my phone horizontally for the pics to post the right way.
Keep chasing that black dog away and stay with the project, it is comming along just fine.

G’day fellas
I know it’s been a while and I committed a mortal sin by not taking photos as much as required, but we have some progress.
New Master Cylinder
New Wheel cylinders front and rear ,(all s/s sleeved)
Rebuilt Brake Air Actuator
New wheel Bearings front and rear
New Tyres front, 2nd hand good on the rear
Home made rear bumper

Had a dose of COVID and the Black dog has been about a bit but had a couple of good mates Bill and Steve helping a great deal and poking me along
Photos for your viewing

Thanks for your encouragement fellas
Bill is comming up tomorrow and we are going to try and fit the HIAB and get it bolted down.
Then i can have a proper go at the wirring and plumb it up and hopefully get the desired result.
Next after that is the Tray

Looks excellent, I assume the extension is the somewhat rusty bit at the back? Doesn't look like there has been any distortion at all. Was it a particularly difficult process?

G'day Driver
I just cut at an angle like the chassis men said to and welded it together a little at a time. We were lucky and got no distortion and a pretty good join.

Fuel tank and Battery relocated , Fuel del and return plumbed up

My mate Bill came up today and we fitted the Hiab. I was so paranoid about it not fitting properly , but I suppose the dozen or so times measuring while I made the subframe paid off. It simply dropped straight on and we tightened up the 20mm mounting bolts. Sprags on and plumed up. Hopefully in the next week or so, will get some wiring done, plumb up the PTO pump and give it a test run
Cheers fellas

The cab has kinda shrunk once the cranes is on board, it might brow a bit or the crane might shrink a bit once the hurdle on the tray is up near it.

Looks pretty good to me
