Sunbeam’s Land Rover


Recommended Posts

G'day 

I'm quite a fan of LPG, got a pic of the old tank?

There will be a valve where the fuel line meets the tank. Shut it off and crack the line, there will be some hissing but it just the gas still in the line, it won't hiss for long.

You can take the tank out from there.

I took the dash off yesterday too. Pretty straightforward really, though some of the screws are in awkward places. Also, slotted screws are of the devil, and should not be allowed in any automotive application. The lower dash panel obviously contained a lot of detritus, so I shook it out on the workshop floor...

Actually a bit comical really. More live ammo too. .22, .22 magnum, and 12 gauge shot gun. 
 

 

Scabine would be a great name for the truck

Go with the sanding discs for sure, I mostly use 36 grit, they take a lot of material off for the first 5 mins then settle down sweet. For fine stuff 60 grit, but once it blunts it takes too long to do anything.

I almost never use a grinding disc nowadays.

Sorry, poste din the wrong bit before. But Yeah, when you re mount your flat deck, don't weld brackets to the chassis or you'll have to get a LVV cert. I did that on the last 109" flat deck I built and it was a pain! Make brackets that pick up on existing fixtures, or make a clamp arrangement

Good to know. Sounds like a ballache. How did the re-vin people know the deck wasn’t always mounted like that?

They didn't care. It clearly wasn't from factory so they weren't happy. The LVV cert guy even thought it was a bit over kill, but was happy to cert it and collect his $600
