Re: Build progress

Bit overkill with the bottle, bearing in mind the reverse box only has about 250ml of oil in it. I glued a pill bottle to the petrol tank, pipe was a push fit in hole hopefully keeping dirt out, going to bottom, sucking any oil back when it cools. Probably been better under the bonnet!

Re: Build progress

Looks good from here. Hope you've recorded all the relays and fuses on your wiring diagram, not that she's going to break down!
Will the relays on the glovebox be under the body shell?
What is the clear plastic bottle for?
Good pictures that can be zoomed in, thank you.

We have seen your car at Founders day and other gatherings, is it in this picture from 2015?
See you at Colmworth.

Re: Triking Transporter

Well engineered Eric.
