Sounds intresting. You have any pictures. Be good to see.Finished making a new Land Rover chassis from 5mm wall box section with the extension to make it a 6 wheeled vehicle, it was assembled on a jig and the basic chassis was welded solid. The various mounting brackets for everything from the suspension mountings to the fuel and water tanks were welded in, and the body mountings were welded in also., it has been primed with anti rust primer so it can be ground off again for any additional bracketry to be added if necessary.
Mate collected it tonight and will fit the engine and transmission as well as the custom suspension during the week to the tacked brackets, once they fit they will be seam welded.
would be good to see some pics of the build,The Land Rover chassis returns, mate took it Saturday night and spent Sunday fitting it out for the mechanicals, engine and transmission fitted fine, front axle fine, front of the two rear axles fine, rear of the two axles fine until the wheels were fitted as they touched each other even with flat tyres.
I did point this our when I did the original CAD drawings but mate worked on standard suspension and wheel sizes, I worked on the basis of his modified suspension and the oversize wheels he intends fitting, but hey the rear axle mounts were only tacked on for fitting up. These were duly removed and re-tacked in what I deemed the correct position originally and aligned, fortunately mate ran back with the empty trailer and collected the rear axles and suspension which were fitted, and the wheels which were bolted on to check clearance. Once he found they fitted fine I zipped all the brackets up.
The ol work station is in bit of a mess mate ain't it ))
