Please document how it's done, the Wheelbarrow and ambo probably need the same treatment.
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

I note you are planning TDI ?The trend is clearly away from diesel. If it is running cost that bothers you LPG will give you similar costs but be more environment friendly. Just a thought.

You dont need to run just diesel through a TDI runs just as good on veg oil.

Thanks for you comments.
I'll be putting up more pic's as I do the front.
 LPG was considered,but the tdi is more suitable for our application.
Big miles and caravan towing.
 Our nearest lpg station is 15miles away.

That front steering arm looks a little bendy? I think you may have in your possession a spare pair of steering arms that were coming to Big-Chris land? If you need to use them mate you can, I have fixed the application they were required for so would just be in the backup stash now............ Still have to sort a couple of beers out in trade but I'm sure I will catch up at-pit......

Looking good chaps, keep up the good work, will have to pop over for a cuppa and catch up at some point.......

Oooo that looks good. I might need to get some welding lessons from Uncle Gadget. Does this now mean that we'll be seeing the lovely Lesley rock up under her own diesel power at future events?
