|So we start dangling the cab on. The steering box has been removed and dropped to the floor, then we can just drop it straight on.
I have to admit to a few nerves doing this - a heavy lift for the hiab, and after all the welding - is it still straight!
|Went on very nicely - used a few bits of wood to support it, and make larger landing pads.|
|First the front is bolted down, as it lets the back pivot.|
|Then the back gets bolted in. the Middle mounts are solid, and the backs currently are meant to be mounted on rubber, which we don't have.
So we used a bit of wood.
|All bolted down now. I'm very frustrated by having to wait for the loom to be fitted before any more of the mechanics (radiator etc).
Be a while till we can go for a spin.
|Oh, this is the loom - or at least most of it.|
I'm _so_ very glad not to be doing it
|Finally it makes it into the mog, there are so many wires, I have an urge to comb it!|
|This is how it looks now, very much different to an earlier picture Here.|
So much painting, so very much!
|It doesn'nt need combing anymore, looks fabulous. Derek has done a fantastic job.|
All brand new and properly made.
|Which allows us to start putting the dials and switches in, making the cab fantastic. Going to brush paint one of the doghouse covers so I can bolt the seat in.|
We need to terminate a couple of wires, fit the seat, fit the radiator and put trans oils in - then we can drive round the farm!
