Further dramatic progress on this very rare tipper truck.
Cab floor being cut and fixed in place.
New chassis/load area support timbers.
Good view of the new fabricated inner wings.
All new metal, yes that's the end of the throttle pedal shaft.
Left hand side view of cab floor.
Wow, this is a whole new, freshly fabricated front end.
View of the offside inner wing, with shock absorber and brake shaft mounting brackets clearly visible.
The rear chassis rail has been replaced. (21-7-2010)
Trial fit of side panels and front engine cover.
The overhauled engine is now sitting in the chassis.
The seat! well wooden base/box, having a trial fit.
Another view of the engine.
Replaced central cross member.
Another view of the engine refitted to the chassis.
It's come a long way, still a little bit more to do, before the MOT.

This project is coming on in leaps and bounds as a change from "tin bashing" rather a lot of work has been carried out on the engine as can be seen in the picture below.

Flying the flag for Britain?
The "B" series lump, the radiator was missing when purchased, note how they cut the rubber pipes to rip it out.
Rear cross member is very bad on this one, a common problem but with the extra forces due to the tipping gear mounting this member is in a bad way.
