More truck work

It’s good to get a break from work at Christmas so I can get some work done. That doesn’t really sound quite right.
I spent the day getting the truck sorted. All the tyres are off the rims and I’ll be giving the rims some much needed love over the weekend. Once all the rust is removed I plan to give them a good coating of gloss epoxy to keep the rust at bay (hopefully).

Here is the truck up on axle stands, minus the wheels.

And all of the rims ready for some loving.

The pictures don’t demonstrate how big everything on this truck really is. I had to buy a new set of axle stands for the back axle. These are 12tonne stands and are enormous compared to anything the landcruiser uses. Even the rims weigh a tonne and are such heavily constructed lumps of steel.
