June 2018 – Frame Assembly

On receipt of the side frames from Paterson Engineering the basic frame was assembled , allowing measurements to be confirmed for the design of the Gearbox rear support, chassis drop arms, running board & rear spring supports – drawings of these parts were sent Patersons for laser cutting from 6mm mild steel plate.
