G'day Dave.
Yeh Snayle found some and bought 4 but as it turns out I don't have any room for them so I can't use them........yet.
Depending on where the 2012 OCR is I might make a bracket up to sit in front of the mudguard.
I'm not a big fan of exposing jerry cans to rocks and things but if the 2012 OCR is at Drysdale River I will definately need more fuel as there is a rumour going around that Rabbit Flat roadhouse (Tanami Track) has closed.
How close are you to getting your chair finished?

Finished fitting the last of the side panels today





Then started with the rear deck lid





Then fitted the lid lock, luggage rack and tie down points


















Fitted the rest of the sidecar brake, and hooked up the last bit of the bike calipers.

Thanks Steve. The length of time this job has taken, I reckon I could have painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling a bit quicker

Then I fitted the rear lower floor section. As well as screwing the aluminium panels in place, they will also be glued to stop any rattling. Sikaflex 252 is the stuff to use. They are now using it to fasten the big aluminium panels to the big semi box trailers. Apparently the ally will tear before the sikaflex lets go.


Hi Neil

Sikaflex is good stuff sticks like shit to a blanket. But it has to to be applied to bare metal. Applied to a panited surface the only bonding you will have is the grip of the paint to the metal. I work for a bus company when we took delivery of a new bus with the alloy panels and side glass panles which were held in place with Sukaflex. Have slight problem with glass coming unglued. This was due a black panited border on the glass. The paint came off the glass and the glass panels fell out. New glass was fitted with out the painted border. No problem after that.

I do like those Upper chair links. Compared to the standard mounting system; this design just looks almost unbreakable.

As to external jerrycan mounting; nothing wrong with some insulation material curved around the leading end. I have fully exposed plastic containers on my trailer, but it will be rarely offroad . . . and the rear wheel mudflap should do that shielding job.

Thanks Nev.

And Marc, I used the Sikaflex on top of the paint. I don't want it permanent and never be able to take it off. At least the paint will come off first

Well that's it! Between Alex's and Neils outfits I don't have a hope in hell of meeting their level of brilliance so it's back to the passenger body idea for me.

Kids really like that idea so it's all good.

The outfit is looking fantastic Neil.
