Riveted,

Or should I say screwed? Clearly more preferable if looking at it positively

Don't get too hammered with your visitors, I for one enjoy my most favourite ever UK build thread...

A curiosity question are you 'fibre glassing' the aluminum to the floor? Maybe I missed something. Somehow I can't see you stopping at the puck.

Amazing work fella, hats off to you

No. The fibreglass tissue just helps carry the Synthaprufe from the floor to the wall. I picked up the tip whilst doing wetrooms.......

:bounce: Evening all :bounce:

I spent a couple of hours running errands and collecting parts needed to continue....... Puck tyres off rims.....off to powder coaters. Thick battery cable for inverter and a few boxes for install. Switches and MCB consumer unit turned up in post etc etc.

So, a mucky Pucky job, synthaprufing the Puck sides to the Puck floor as the fitter returns on Saturday to fit more Karndean....

Image

I want to fit a switch to enable me to choose mains power or inverter power. This switch disconnects one before connecting to the other so the two never will meet.......apparently 8O

Image

The Company that I bought the switch off wanted a small fortune for a mounting box which looked very much like this IP55 box that I picked up from Screwfix for £3..... :wink: and with a few holes drilled....

Image

that will do nicely....

Image

I'm just awaiting the 80A circuit breaker then I'm good to go. More later in the week.

Cheers,

Steve

Nothing on Rusty today apart from starting him up and moving out of the cave. Awaiting ingredients for next phase.......

So it was a Puck evening. It's not completely topless anymore 8O

Yes, I have been of late :oops: :oops:

Lots of "stuff" going on in the background though. Parts being ordered. Curtains being made. Wheels. Just about got all the bits for the inverter/mains hook up install. Brakes need to be bled. Then I'm done, more or less....on the bus that is :lol:

Puck roof the next big target.
