The new chassis has been road tested and found to need some modifications to improve ground clearances.These are ongoing just now.
We are also working on ways to reduce its weight further. When alterations are complete the chassis will be road tested over many miles before commencing with the build of a new expedition body.
This “work in progress” body has been made from plywood. The cutaways reduce weight whilst the remaining material provides significant structural strength. The body will be weatherproofed using a combination of Correx and weatherproof fabric.
Many thanks to Bob Deegan of www.deeganharpsichords.com, Lancaster, England for his help with this.
