Still WAY behind but still at it
--- Howdy All, had a few days a couple of weeks ago where I could try and get a few things done. Like a lot of folks here, I probably have too many different "projects" going at once and when you only get to work on them once every few months...well, just figuring out where you left off is half the battle.
Anyhow, at least I did move ahead a little. Got the brackets fabbed and welded on for mounting the rear deck. Had my local sheetmetal shop put together the interior can for the fuel filler...and...mounted the altered brackets for hanging the little Manchester propane tank. Did get a few more odds n' ends advanced but nothing to crow about. With any luck, I should be able to spend a little more time on this never ending story during the Fall & Winter.
Modified LPG tank brackets
Through wall box for fuel filler neck
Frame extension for rear deck prepped for bracket
One of the deck mounting brackets welded on (the deck frame will bolt up via these brackets. I have decided to go with a fold-up rear deck to limit hangout when on the road). They are angled out to accommodate hanging a 145 pound, 36" in diameter spare under the deck
Also located what appears to be some well engineered motor mounts for the little Cummins engine I am installing. Look to be a b!tch to bolt onto the motor, but should save a heck of a lot of custom fabricating. I'll know pretty soon.
