To break up the endless grinding and painting on the Jeep tub….
On a crisp Saturday morning we also spent some time on the Shopland Sawmills Bonser fork lift truck.
This tired old workhorse is an invaluable part of the fleet. It helps us keep the workshops and yard running, especially in the run-up to the show. It has a hard life and was very much in need of some TLC.
The truck is currently in the workshop, engine having been taken out and decades worth of crud and sludge removed. The internals are being rebuilt, so hopefully it should run like new.
It also needed a lick of paint, so we’ve been rubbing back and priming the panels.
The engine block arrived back and was heaved into position, then the cylinders were fitted.
