(Catch-Up Update)

With the hoop frames made I then started work on the front and rear mounting locations and got the supports welded into place...

Front...

Rear...
Image

I tack welded equal lengths of RHS between the mounting plates to keep them square and straight when welding them to the rotisserie frame. The rear plates are offset and not central to the hoop as I wanted to have more clearance around the rear wheel arch...

(Catch-up Update)

To make for easy installment and transport I chose to join the hoops with a sleeve style method with plug welds on one side and a bolt through the other side of the join...
Image

All of the welds/joins/mounting plates etc were cleaned back and painted with a color matched blue to the existing RHS...
Image

I separated the rear hoop into a top and bottom half with the sleeve joins to make the installation easy...
Image

The front hoop was joined in 4 locations which will make it possible to disassemble part of the front hoop while attached to the car, to remove the front doors for dogleg repairs etc...
Image

The main part of the Rotisserie is completed however later on down the track I will add RHS supports which join the two hoops together and also supports to rest underneath the chassis in the centre. Very happy with the outcome of my year 12 school project from last year.

Thanks guys for the positive comments, I should mention the pic of the Binz DC is not mine, that pic was my inspiration for the rotisserie project

(Catch-Up Update)

During school holidays late last year I wanted to get something achieved on the bus, so I decided to tackle the broken engine lid hinge mounts. Took a little longer than I had expected but it came up not too bad.

A few shots to show the damage and what needed to be repaired...

(Catch-Up Update)

Started by cutting out, repairing and welding the hinge guide/ outside sections

Then I started to fabricate the sections for the inside. From factory the tapping plates are spot welded to the hatch. For adjustment purposes I decided to create a cavity for a tapping plate. The OG tapping plates were buggered so I made a couple of new ones...

These sections proved to be very fiddly but I got there eventually. All welded in and ground back :)
