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
