Title: roadworthy items
Post by: downhill on December 13, 2018, 06:45:43 PM
Hi All , getting my jumbo up to roadworthy standard, any one got a lead on pedal rubbers? Im finding its a challenge to just build a standard machine up to scratch, its the little things that can hold up a roadworthy. In my workshop I have a two post 4T hoist, any Brisbane Bugas welcome to come around and check out my clan, CF 280 with Holden 6 & Trimatic, Vauxhall Camper built by AutoSleepers Britian, shipped from NZ, & my fave is the Sliding Door with a 302 Clevo, C4 'box & slippery diff. E-mail craig@hobbyhoist.com.au , Hobby Hoist, open all hours, I live upstairs. Quietly restoring Beddys!

Sounds like a good setup you have! I just ordered pedal rubbers from the link below

Hi Beddites, after a preliminary inspection for roadworthy, Im happy with progress. Two items that require parts, door check springs, holding doors open is a requirement, also must have a demister fan working. Any one with these parts spare? Was given a price of $500 for a fan and heater, could probably rebuild one for that cost. Any one gone around this with a different fan set up? Didn't snag pedal rubbers, was more interested in seeing full perimeter weld on all patches, time for another weld process. A keen body worker I met at a show here, Beddy owner too, does gas and solder work for those troublesome areas, then a good sand back. Can work better than MIG which can blow out when it contacts a bad patch. Tack in with MIG, fill in with the gas and solder. Can only improve my skills I guess.


Keep pushing uphill to get the downhill thrill!
