Evening all.

The new slave cylinder uses a 7/16" unf fitting in one of the holes and the other's a 3/8". I've had to order the larger one off the 'net as they're not readily available in my neck of the woods.

New brake pipes made and just about ready to install. Just awaiting the union...a bit of finessing to get the lines all straight and the job's a good'n

:bounce: Evening all :bounce:

I finally finished off the handbrake job today, getting the brakes bled. It works very well. The cables tension applying the handbrake pads and then with the last two clicks the hydraulic circuit comes in. Should make hill starts with the Puck on a bit easier 😁

The rest of the day was spent modifying a belly pan to fit around the Red 9 steering arm.....

Just got to Gravitex and then paint. Should be fitted for VF :cheers:

That's all

I collected the modified belly pan from the painter today. Just got to get some stainless penny washers now and then I'll fit it :D

:bounce: Morning all :bounce:

So.....a quick job today, prior to starting to use the bus for some long journeys, and one that's sure to send a few if you scooting off to Rymans........😂

Wind whistle....from the quarter lights.... :evil: :cheers:

This is what I did.....

20180414_101556.jpg

and after a bit of cutting with a sharp knife....

20180414_101546.jpg

:D SORTED :D No whistle when quarter light closed :cheers:

Would be better if A3 length was available so no joint required. I'll check that.....

That's all folks

Steve
