State of the Trailer Mast

Wheels

New tyres and tubes on the wheels.
Brakes need inspected.
Left side Hub needs looking at (after the wheel fell off during transit)

Chassis

Wheel arches have been removed. These need measured and remade.
2/3 of the chassis has been ground down to bare metal and painted. The last 1/3 needs ground down and painted.
It all needs another coat or two.

Electrics

Trailer electrics need redone: New lights, new cable, new plug. This will be done when the main chassis is complete.

Mast

Mast needs stripped down and cleaned and regressed and the new seals fitted and the whole thing put back together again.
We need to take measurements (tgreer to confirm which ones), so we can order the new seals.
Need to paint the mast once we're putting it back together.

Compressor/Engine

Box needs scraped/painted.
Engine needs looked at and made to run again.
Compressor we believe is fine but we might want to check.
Control valve needs checked to ensure it's ok before it's mounted back on the chassis.

Money

We raised £375.01 in the pledge.
So far we have spent:

  • Tyres - £95
  • Studs & Nuts - £45
  • Tyre Tubes + Fitting - £55
  • Paint - £33.42
  • Paint Stripper - £38.72

Total: £267.14
Amount left: £107.87
This is a slight problem as the seals, o-rings and grease are £200...
