10-19-2012 06:32 PM Hand Brake
Stared on the parking brake. Had to remove the oil cooler for the gearbox to fit the hand brake cables.
Photo-1 Using the Ford Fairmont brake cables I covered the outer sheaf with high voltage heat shrink to get a better look.
Photo-2 Made the first bracket that needs to be welded to the body.
Photo-3 The two parts fitted together before welding on.
Photo-4 The second bracket needed to be a bit longer.
Photo-5 Temporary setup of the cables & the fulcrum arm.

09-10-2012 02:26 AM Gearbox Tunnel
Once again I decided to change work already completed. I found the gearbox tunnel was too high and not enough room for my feet so I cut the old one out and re-fabricated it narrower and shorter by 4 inches it also looks much tidier.
Photo 1 The old tunnel.
Photo 2 The new tunnel.
Photo 3 Both side by side.
Photo 4 New tunnel in place but not screwed down.

08-18-2012 01:35 AM Front Light wiring
Onto the front light wiring.
As you need to hide all the wiring I purchased some stainless steel braided hose.
I machined a nipple to go into the frame and a Ferrell to keep the braid from unwinding.
Photo 1 the nipple I machined, the thread provided a challenge.
Photo 2 the ferrell over the stainless steel braid.
Photo 3 one end fitted to the frame. I need to clean the bucket as its getting very dusty.
Photo 4 the light end took a bit of playing around to get it to fit.
Photo 5 the completed cable cover.
