Coming on nicely. We are getting a bit of a battering down in Blackpool from the wind - but only getting 60-70mph gusts!

Be careful sorting out the fence - don't want you getting hurt and delaying progress on the TM! Had you thought of telling Mrs Okdoky that, as its only going to blow down again before the weather eases, its not really worth doing the repair this weekend and it would be far safer and more productive to let you hide in your man-cave and fiddle with plastic? No? To be honest I wouldn't have tried it with Mrs BtM either!!

Howling gales still and not worth fighting mother nature !!!!!

Hoping this passes muster to give enough of the look needed when break actuators, leaf spring hanging brackets and other wee bits are added !!!!!!

:bye: Nige,

Looks like it's time for me to get :poke: or :whip: .

Haven't seen much activity for a while now :D .

Have a go at doing just a little piece now and then and I'm sure the lust for plastic filings and dust will soon reappear (I know you're thinking ​pot kettle black) :winkgrin: .

Hope to see some progress soon.

Thanks Folks

The trucks I try to build have a personal connection being a type I have had a chance to drive so I almost relive some of the fun off roading while in the TA !!!!!!! Scratching them is taking longer than my time in the TA !!!!!!!! HA HA HA HA !!!!!!!!!! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 9 years in the TA with 13 years to build my DROPS and King Trailer ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and 2 years on the Bedford TM !!!!!!!!!! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I have a KFS Bedford MK and L/R Lightweight in the stash still to start and part built scratch L/R Lightweight and Sanky trailer still to complete (50%) !!!!!!

I have to say that I am getting heaps of help from all directions on the TM which is fantastic !!!!!! And more offers of pics under the cab due soon !!!!!!! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Can't thank them enough !!!!!!!

Spent a couple of hours in the office pinning the leaf springs in place ready to tackle the brake actuators, stearing links and other bits and bobs !!!!!! Then had a go at making the step rings for the front wheels !!!!!

Plastic tube from an old marker pen was the perfect outer diameter, still to be thinned out inner face a little more !!!!! Took the tin foil from Coffee Mate tub seal and embosed the detail from the saw blade thumb tightener !!!!!! Then wrapped around !!!!!!!

Will add the tiny plates that the nuts lock the step rings to the wheel much later !!!!
