I have had to alter the front to be able to fit the hand brake and linkages, made a new asymmetrical front armour, still have to make the folding bottom half and correct hinges, while I had it stripped down I made and fitted the hydraulic tank

Cut a new lower armour in steel and made new hinges, these are only fixed on the bottom half’s as they still need to be dismantled

Had a few days away from the pak, looking at it today I realised the new front armour and hinges were not up to scratch so I binned them, made a start on the brake drums, these are just loosely fitted while I sort out the rest of the linkages

Bit more progress on the brake drums, parts loosely fitted, the arms for the brake cable need making and fitting

Linkages fitted and working, just the hand wheels for the adjusters, and the attachments for the brake cables to make, then stripped, fettled and small detail added

Thanks for the kind words Bob, the brake drums were a bit fiddly but nearly there, just need to trim a few bits, and reposition the oilers on the adjusters, they should be facing forwards

Made a start on the hand brake, this showed that the brass front I made for the chassis was not wide enough, made an over size one and will trim as needed, made the hand brake cable guides and levers these all function

Handbrake made and fitted, brake cables fitted to front and rear linkages but not yet connected to the brake drum arms, this is how far I got today
