And now for something completely different

Another day of beautiful weather here.

Got a large chunk of the chassis work completed today.
New rear section and repair/closing plates welded on. Nice and sturdy at the back now
The 20 tonne jack that had been welded into the upper structure finally came out too, bit of a beast.

I don’t think I’ll update this as frequently as I have been, thought it would be interesting for lockdown reading and it being series Land Rover based, but perhaps more interesting to me doing it :D

Anyway now the chassis is almost ready for paint and the day was threatening rain, we made a start on fabricating some of the replica pieces.

This section weighs probably a third of the original, and that’s accounting for when its sheeted in 1mm steel.
Hugely unnecessary weight for a non structural part.

It’s funny that in remaking fully in steel it will end up lighter overall than it was in mdf form :hmm:
