I had a bit of time this evening so I though I’d make a start on stripping the 2500M or Doris as she is now know.
I wasn’t going to start until October but I’m itching to see what I’ve really got so I put her up on stands and removed the wheels, bonnet and wheel arch liners.
I had a good look round the underside and the chassis don’t seem too bad, but there are some rather clunky repairs and some iffy looking welding. The centre part of the chassis and the rear seem pretty good. The front out riggers have suffered a bit though.
Bloody bonnet is massive and heavy. Not sure if I’m going to get that in the van and off to the storage unit very easily 😐
Anyway, feels good to make a start. Now where can I buy WD40 in bulk!
