Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

Finally,, I've had these few parts made for some weeks now but just not had time to post the pics up, I have folded up a pair of new chassis legs, these are similar to original minor legs but don’t have the pinches around the front lower arm mount or the kick up at the back where they will meet the ...

Re: PCD? Ofset? what do they really mean?

Hi All I have just measured two standard minor 1000 wheels, They both show a positive offset, i.e the wheel clamping face is nearer the outside (front) of the wheel, I measured 1 riveted wheel and one welded wheel the offset measured 3 3/8” on the welded rim and 3 ¼” on the riveted rim, now I didn’t...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

Yes always enjoy a challenge, to me the challenge is more about rebuilding it to high standard and building something that works correctly and drives well, I don’t want to just cobble it back together, and I don’t want it to look like Frankenstein underneath when I’m finished, No cant Platt fog, but...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

Yes it is indeed "a bit of a rot box" But it's a bit of a rot box that now has two new custom chassis legs. New custom bay floors. A new slim front cross member and the start of a one off center cross member. I'll take some pics of my endeavours next week and post them up. There's not much to look a...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

So now we move slightly rearwards, to the rear seat box, now this has been completely covered along its front face with full width and height repair sections, but when I looked inside the box all the rotten steel is still inside and shows no sign of rust proofing/waxoyling. Gotta love a specialist.....

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

So now the moment you have all been waiting for,,, or perhaps not,, First picture shows the dash, floor and chassis legs, or at least what’s left of them, OS leg is the worst, but both are rotten, still the dash is in great condition, so thats gotta be a bonus. Second pic shows the bulkhead and a ve...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

Hi all, Well I did say it would be a slow build, lol and work got in the way in the last few weeks, but here’s a little update, Now there comes a time when you have to be realistic (and apparently adult) and admit that the shell you have is so rotten that there’s really not much to work with and tha...

Re: Clip on door mirrors

Hi all, I have successfully used VW beetle mirrors on minors before, yes yes I know I used the "VW" word, A quick look on fle-bay came up with these results This first set is for a vw bus so more commercial looking, in my opinion. I have not used these on a minor commercial so don't know if they wil...

Re: A very slow build of a custom traveller

Pretty much yes, you can see from the pre blasting pics that both chassis legs are rotten, and as for the front cross member it was only attached to one chassis leg so I broke that off before blasting, The floors and main cross member have had it, along with everything else really, so your actually ...
