roadworthy items
« 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!

Thanks heaps  Drifter, what a tremendous job you & crew are doing, and the complete story too! I don't have the spare cars around, wreckers are not keen to let you stroll thru wrecks to find stuff. I must the only guy going back to stock standard on a project, I might run it by an auto elec see if the old one can be made go again.
     

 gotta push uphill. . . .still!

$500 is too much. You can get your old heater box recored for around $250 at a radiator place. And did you try Robert Ross in Loganholme for door Springs and fan? 0402 989 175. The fan won't push much air but that's how they are originally.

Pedal rubbers are a perfect fit. The accelerator pedal has an old cracked rubber I found somewhere, but I think when I got roadworthy 20 odd years ago I never had one and it was ok.
