2B crew cab build thread

Postby watson32 » Mon Dec 17, 2012 5:54 pm

Eventually got round to sorting the build thread out on the new forum.

At the beginning of this year i bought a 2B as a project (most bits came in the pick-up haha)

To make it a bit more practical i decided to fit a 300tdi engine and box out of a 110. At the same time i thought a crew cab would be a bit different so set to making the body work out of what was left of our 110.

To make it all fit (the turbo was the main issue under the seat box) we had to lift the top rails up. I made some 4" rails (the same as the original one) to go between the chassis and top rails.

I've had it all together with bits tacked in place to allow me to sort all the steering linkages out and have now stripped it back down to weld all the brackets / mounts on and paint everything up.

Will hopefully have a few more photos of progress soon.

Looking good, I'll be interested to see more progress.
Are you fitting power steering, and if so what's the plan?

Thanks.

No i've ended up using a 101 steering column and modified the mounting points to suit the 110 bulkhead.

Good call. Does it leave the wheel in a decent position?
More importantly, does the wheel turn easily with the steering connected?

The wheel feels like its in a good position (not too low to catch your knees on) and it seems to work ok but will let you know once its up and running.

The 101 is my little brothers project, it was on the road until a few months back (i've just posted a build thread in the 101 section)

Have eventually got round to doing some work on the 2B

The chassis is all ready to start fitting bits back onto it.

Think the 2B might have to stay in bits for a bit longer.
