Spud mobile has arrived !

Post by JonnyCJ » Wed Mar 20, 2013 7:28 pm

The Spud Mobile (65 CA import) has arrived and was very safely delivered by Phil at Autodel.

The whole van is extremely solid, but the front panel could do with a new unit from the window frames downwards.

Can someone kindly point me in the direction of a replacement supplier who provide good quality panels at low low prices !

Pics now sorted !

Just spoken to Nick at Deaddubs - they're going to have a look at it and give me a quote for fettling !

That looks pretty fair! Front panel looks fair, needs tidy? Seems ok.

Gonna get the front panel changed. It's had a ding at some point in it's life which has been repaired pretty well, but I like things doing properly, so rather than fill it full of filler I'd rather have a straight base to start from and then have minor bits of filler if needed during the prep stage to get it perfect.

Makes sense, no bondo if possibly, lead loading is cool if needed.
