Winter Strip Down: Rob Harrad #258 – Part 4

Rob’s winter strip down and rebuild continues and this week it is the beginning of putting it all back together again. Follow from Part 1 HERE.

New front bumper with NZ style over ride bar which later had to be removed when I read the rule book again (Don't want another rollcage-gate )

Back bumper on hoping not to be seen by many this year !!

Welding in new front axle mount points

The batteries ran out on the camera so the construction of the side rails just magically appear, or it could be the work of the stock car builder fairies while I popped the kettle on?

Wow the side rails have appeared !!!

Outside ready for loading to go to the shot blasters

Back at Jones Tanker Services, a little bit of final fettling before repaint can start

Yours truly donned in all the gear and ready to start spraying, exciting times as I've never done this before !!

Son in law James White steps in to save the day.

Lifted off stands with our fork lift. It is a good job we have the fork lift, not as good as someone's telehandler though, but it does the job

All sprayed up in primer #1

All sprayed up in primer #2

All sprayed up in primer #3

All that is needed now is a bit of filler work on the body, rub down and repaint. For those who may be wondering why the cab wasnt blasted? That was because it took the young Mr Adam Perkins about 2 weeks to filler it last time !!! and I couldn’t put him through that again.

– Thanks for Looking Rob.
