part 2

Also restored my early steering wheel and box/shaft. Schaft was siezed in the steering wheel...what a pain
Came out nice though!!




Into the mill to cut the nut out



Then i cut a piece of a nos studebaker us6 shaft that i had and welded it to the HT shaft ;D




on to the steering wheel..




2 part epoxy for plastic repair


some sanding later..




And the result!







Also got myself a runing angine with like new compression! price was to good so will rebuild my other engines when im bored sometime hehe




made some brake lines


Sow front axle done new brakes, lines and hoses with new chevron tires and early rims.
The plan is now to clean up the engine and install it and also put my gear and transfer box back together to trow it on the engine.
After that the rear bogie assy will be next in line..got it al nos so i dont have to tear down my old bogie stuf wich i pretty nice
Then i'll trow some tracks on it and take it for a spinn 8)

Got loads of things painted (like front armor and dashboard) but it has to wait for install

Also need to find more time as its crazy busy with work

Thats it for now, not the best updates but you guys get the general idee ;)
