Well, finally got around to at least starting the cab repairs/rebuild.
Sometimes don't fully realise just what I have taken on!
As can be seen, quite a bit of cancer in the lower sections of the cab, but surprisingly it is pretty straight without many dings in it. Will test the mig welder out, as well as my own expertise (HA!).
Biggest problem looks like being getting replacement box sections folded up for the cabin floor supports. The floor plates are flat and can use the old ones as templates.
mate came around and had a look and reckons that he had seen far worse than this refurbished, even the door lower sections could probably be simply removed with the angle grinder/cutter and new sections welded in. Just as well I'm retired and have little else to spend my time on!
Cheers, Dave_64

there aint no turning back now LOL
I was on the blower to Chocs a while ago and he mentioned some tool that you can buy that puts a double set in the panel you are putting the patch on so the new but welds up flash to the old bit but also gives it support
And on the other half of the tool it punches the holes for your plug welds
Apparently a real time saver and helps to do a much neater and stronger job |
If he sees this he might give you the low down to what this is called

Thanks, Paul. Certainly like to know more about that tool, anything that makes it easier worth looking at, Dave

Flange and punch, air operated
The stepped section works a treat when welding, very little distortion and very strong.
Google will work to find it, think I paid around $90 for mine.
Can dig up the info on mine if you cannot find it online.

Look forward to following the build Dave, some of these butt
welding clamps may be a good investment.

Some good gear getting around these days, come a fair way from the old trying to hold everything together with vice grips or using 'G' clamps and pieces of timber/metal.
Mrsmack, Chocs sent me the link, thanks.

I bought this trolley on Ebay, I think for about one hundred and fifty dollars I think it started out as a lathe stand.
I have put the pictures up on my site before. ( sorry to the other viewers )

Chassis away at the sandblasters at the moment. Then start installing engine/trans. Tidy looking jigger, that. Dave

The cab on my Leyland Harrier tilt tray is far worse than that one.And was worse when the truck was still on the road.In fact some of the worst rusty cabs Ive seen were on fairly modern trucks(at the time).The windscreen and quarter window surrounds/frames look to be stainless or brass.
