Building the Tray - Part 5

Work on the build has been slow and not without a few problems.   Working five days a week and still trying to maintain some semblance of a social life leaves so little time to do all of the work that is required – however the job is progressing and beginning to take shape.

After installing the wheel arches and tray floor (which I forgot to take photos of), the next step was to fit the outer guards surrounding the tray floor and half of the back wall of the storage locker.  All of this went very well and I managed to get the work finished in the day and a half I had at my disposal.






 Last weekend I only had the Sunday to work on the build and spent most of the morning with Paul (my brother-in-law) at his work cutting and bending the sheet metal for the panels.  In the afternoon I was able to get most of the right hand side completed and the storage boxes are starting to take shape.







I think that I am about half way to completion and Eileen and I are so looking forward to our maiden trip with this rig.
