Expedition Truck Progress

Big Red is almost ready to go. I got the front bumper on today after sandblasting and painting it. All the wiring is done and everything is working. I had a serious hold up with the brakes. First the master cylinder needed resleeving then the booster was seized and needed rebuilding. So finally all is ready to go. The pod is the next stage and I need to start giving some serious consideration to the layout and mounting system.

Here is Big Red with a shiny new bumper.


Now that it’s back together and the brakes are sorted, it’s time for a road test.
I put the Go-Pro camera in the back but didn’t realise there was a cardboard box sitting just in front of it which obstructs the view a bit. Hopefully the video gives you some idea of what it’s like riding in Big Red.
