The chassis came from Richards Chassis, this was their first.

Last time I talked FC chassis with them I was told they'd do it for a similar price to the One Ton chassis.

Best plan is phone and ask, they're generally happy to offer advice.

:2b: The 2b has now gone to ground for the winter! parked in a Friends garage along with some serious toys, Diamond T Wrecker, 1920's Bedford Charabang, 1930's Jensen, plus a few others.

Before it went away I took a few detailed photos which may be of interest:-

This is a beautifully folded battery tray made by a local electrical cabinet manufacturer, so good I thought I'd get him to do the engine cover.

The rear body was dismantled and all the steelwork galvanised

The cab is looking tidy, but is still missing the vital tranfer box levers and a heater(should it be a round or square one?)

Now for the deliberate mistakes, Don't remove the doortops with a hammer (even a rubberone!)

These doors were refurbished and galvanised by ashtree, but I can't say I was particulaly happy with the job , I'm sure the drivers door has a twist because it doesn't shut well.They were very expensive as well! It appears replacement are now available (does anyone know if they are any good?) so it could be new doors all round next year.

Hi.

Looking at your heater mountings, I'd say a round heater.

Great build.
