Harsh call from you one nut. I have plenty of other trucks and mobile plant that keep me far too busy to even think about the mongrel. Besides imagine the environmental harm I would do if I shifted it now? All those insects and rodents with out a place to call home :roll: :oops:

the only thing i find really annoying is that they still call them a "car" not a "truck". Maybe its a kiwi thing.

found some spare swivel balls for the rear axle

dis-assembly of the cab and chassis starts after QBW, still making space in the garage for it, going to be quite different doing this in a 1.5 garage instead of a fully equipped workshop with heaps of space :lol:

Hey all,

Thought I might throw up an update on this rig. A few months ago I was chatting to Jafa and the subject came up that he wanted to part with the Jalopy as living on a boat isn't great for workshop space. Couldn't resist having a nosy and couldn't say no to the opportunity :mrgreen:

20210212_175550.jpg


It was sitting for 3 years in a paddock unmoved or started and went with a new battery and fuel. Mice have been in and eaten everything including the seats, and the rear brakes were seized but luckily its pretty basic. Needs a lot of maintenance done but couldn't resist taking it out for a crawl (luckily have some convenient rocks near my house).

20210214_165643.jpg


May update the thread but not going to mod too much other than a deck so its a bit easier to take on multi day missions. Have already fixed a few of the broken things and replaced a few heims. Just got lots of servicing and rebuilding to go but having space to drive at home is great for the motivation to keep it running

From what I hear theres a lot sitting around in sheds collecting dust! Have also seen a few projects from people on here in the past come out of the woodwork in one form or another (often with jungle gyms welded to the outside)
