Hey Alex, what's happening with the camper body you have on the Beemer at the moment?

As for water, I was thinking of putting a length of 150 mm pvc pipe along the side of mine for water. 150mm X 1500 mm long gives me 26.5 litres. Just fit a tap to the back end. No need for pumps and stuff. It would fit above/between the mounts and 3 or 4 round clamps would hold it on. Could have two if I wanted. Just a thought.

Hi 3Legs, Yeah I have been struggling with the heat in SA as well The new project looks interesting! There is A LOT of work to be done especially when you start with some steel lying on the ground with a wheel and the rest you make!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SCray's new outfit is SLOWLY getting there (wherever there is) Finding it difficult to find decent temperature for fiberglassing etc but progress is progressing!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep up the good work on the new project, Leigh

Hi guys

As Johno and Leigh said it's just too bloody hot to do any work, besides I have to go to work to pay for these things.

Phil, I actually tried that on my camper outfit and it sort of worked but it leaked a bit and it looked a bit stupid to be honest. Looked like a rocket launcher when painted black. Good for scaring cage drivers I guess

Leigh, your'e right lots of work to be done but you know what, I reckon once I get off my arse (and this bloody heat pisses off) and I get stuck into it it should be finished fairly quickly. I reckon at the end of it I would have spent more time doing drawings and getting the gear organised that it will it will to build.

Clancy, with Snayle that's both him and the outfit

TD, I only found out today you were/are on the "other side" so once again, sorry. As for the camper, not sure what I'm going to do with it. Depends on how much I like sleeping on the ground again as this new chair will only take a swag. My original thoughts were keep the K1100 camper for rallies that require very little dirt work (although it did do the OCR comfortably) and use the new chair with an appropriate bike for full on dirt work or just change chairs as required. After all it's only 4 bolts and an electrical connector.
If I decide to sell it I have promised Snayle the first right of refusal but you can have the 2nd.

Gad and McCardigan do you accept bribes?

Hey it's alright for you bludgers who sit at home on their fat arses and let someone else work on their sidecars. I have to go work to work to pay for my toys (and my daughters,bloody hell she's expensive)

I get started tomorrow morning. I have all the parts (except the ali skin), bits and pieces, electrical stuff etc etc etc. Decided to get quality bits and pieces like stainless steel hinges and the like. I've just discovered marine stores (not being a boatie) and I was like a kid in a chocky shop. They have really good quality gear but bloody expensive so this is going to cost me a little bit more than I wanted but at least it wont rust.

Relax petals I will post some photo's tomorrow night.
