I could do with the sleep, Paul, but unfortunately it's just too entertaining!

A lot achieved in the short time on the job.
Planning for the side reinforcement too.
Cattle in the top deck would be most interested!
Looks like side panels support a lot of the load and
make the unit rigid, bit like a pan.
Big wrap from the checking station on the condition
of your restoration of the prime mover.
Good luck with the next few days Paul.

MrsMackPaul the first and second videos are fantastic! Where did you find that actor? :huh: I think he is in the next Mad Max film :woohoo: The bit where you drill out the rubber bush brought to mind one of my Father's favourite sayings:- There are more ways of killing a cat than choking it with cream.
When I watched your videos, there were a lot of other videos that came up. Several of them appeared to be made by you. Is that so?
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!

Morris I have made a few videos over the years, there's must nearly 25 at guess maybe more
Pretty sure there is 18 just on the Mack, might half a dozen on the Federal, 3 or 4 on the D7, a few farming videos

And the count keeps rising lol

Anyway I hope you all get some sort of enjoyment out of them even if it's only a good laugh

Where'd ya pinch the Haynes gear from?

Princess loves opp shops, plus overalls are getting hard to find these days, as a rule I dont usually change my overalls or wash them until the job is done

Some times I gotta tie the legs together so they dont run away

It is getting harder to get the normal old boiler suit style overalls

Yeah tell me about it, I only wear overalls but everywhere I go lately tries to give me pants and shirt, apparently overalls are expensive now, maybe thats just my size. I used to do a bit for Haynesy many years ago, I think he's still going up Townsville way somewhere.

Have a think about dirty overalls. You may have heard of a well known military vehicle bloke in Adelaide. Many would know him for doing beautiful rebuilds on 1930-50 instrument panels.

About 5 years ago. He was a pom so used to putting on his greasy overalls to work on his blitz half track project. Upshot was overalls caught fire during a heavy grinding job and burned him so badly he died in hospital.
