Catch-up time

posted in: Tikal's preparation | 0

There have been no articles regarding the truck for several months (roof rack installation excepted), but that is not because we stopped moving forward!

So we had to give you an uptdate with some pictures and an overview of all these little stuffs we worked on during all this week-ends:

The rust in the cockpit

Before:

During:

After:

The hole in the floor

This washing machine passed away at the right time!
Cut
Rustproofing treatment
The hole
Plate set up
With sealant and rivets

The old toilet hatch

The hole fixed with fiberglass
Door insulation with recycled polystyrene
A piece of washing machine again
And here is what it looks like
A brand new door!

Some other holes

With resin and fiberglass

Old clearance lights
Old water outlet
Old fuel heating fixations

And with some new hatches

Water
Boiler
Electricity
The old refrigerator hatch become a cabin aeration

And the last home inside the truck

Failing soldering it, we decided to put some rivets on pieces of iron plate, and to finish with resin and fiberglass.

We renew all the seals

The roof window
The wheel arches
The gaz hatch

Then a coat of paint

A layer of rustproof white, the second one of anti-condensation.

It looks a lot cleaner...
Voilà!!
