Another quick up date I managed to finish a job a day early on Friday so I got to go home for a day which meant I got to play on the cab for a few hours in the afternoon , which was a bonus 😁 after a bit of head scratching and double checking measurements I finally marked it all out and started to butcher the cab here’s a few pictures of the progress E4261375-0F4D-487D-BC60-F1079C370079.thumb.jpeg.6deaf6ba056a04072c543e325ef949b9.jpeg9622B02D-9169-41B3-8C50-E9911E32126F.thumb.jpeg.37549c2b8460336ae60436640a288d62.jpegAB718D6E-FE0F-47A6-BFE2-4FBD373957B0.thumb.jpeg.1bea55fe7d356c5eb35c4d9f5b1ec5a5.jpegEF89CC09-F362-488B-9C72-F9DE70835AF9.thumb.jpeg.75d8bdd9465779deb0acfaf1a0e6f2c6.jpeg49485AAF-1A1A-44A5-8C76-AA1F72DF29EC.thumb.jpeg.3c23715ba564af70cd4ad2517a768178.jpegD0D60F81-4933-4DC3-8C52-8E8785E85435.thumb.jpeg.2e66f828f406a0d29aba7facc019c808.jpeg53BC35C8-CD7F-4B35-8BD3-02142045CA4F.thumb.jpeg.9ea6f5fe57da78acae10b02b5132b78e.jpeg945F4511-118F-4773-95B1-06397BFA85EA.thumb.jpeg.46266e3ab152830efaf40563032e81ce.jpeg4E01958A-531A-431A-91B4-47046FD370D6.thumb.jpeg.38c451e6c3fb4055b4da149f0182fd70.jpegF4D52339-FFD8-48C8-AA19-96173D9B7C45.thumb.jpeg.46f6b6ab7a3eee53be29a79cb1c6c691.jpeg9D4584F3-A2C7-420A-B17F-3FC3B1E6E5F3.thumb.jpeg.d75cf01df53237fb6f62a2d179272b0b.jpegI’m really pleased with the result so far it’s all glued back up together and has set in place nicely now , I'm going to make a new base for it as the mdf base was a bit bashed at the sides and then going to give it a good clean and polish up next weekend , I’m in two minds on if I change the t moulding as the original is not too bad but it might be worth doing it as it will give it that final new finish 👍 next job is to sort out the meters as on the club cab there down to the left hand side and on the arcade cab there in the center on a plinth so I’ve got to make a plinth with my off cut from the bottom of the cab where I cut the new door in and clean all the rust of of the meter brackets and give them a good clean up while I’m working away , thanks for reading cheers dave 🍻

Good point about the rubber and not plastic I hadn’t thought of that  maybe I will leave it then as it is good still to be fair and will save me £30 😁9C0BA3BE-D157-471C-8F32-8D80E10CDCE7.thumb.jpeg.b161cdb69f13839270e3a01c0b591a63.jpeg1F34550D-9144-4909-9FE5-F802C9AA8327.thumb.jpeg.e53497691f1ba783b669ff92dd04f803.jpegEEBA12B7-8968-4727-A3C9-411E7FABA5A4.thumb.jpeg.8b222c34eacdef578697f12701e626f5.jpeg4B4D0D6D-06AC-47E3-9AEA-8DCED7D1B64A.thumb.jpeg.997164cc9f10f777d2da5a237e73fb72.jpegstarted on the meters and the brackets today as i brought them away with me , giving them a clean up and will probably  spray them up silver or black ?

Ahh I remember you mentioning about it now 👍black spay paint is easier I think,  just got my fingers crossed that I have re connected back up the meters properly as I did not have the special tool to reinsert them properly in to the connector so used a fine tipped screwdriver in my haste time will tell 😉

So spraying all done now had a go on a couple of extra bits and really pleased with the results and I’ve just tested the meters and they all work fine , result 👍I also sprayed the reel deck base as i got the powder coaters to sand blast it but told them to leave it bare as I thought it might look ok but the more I looked at it I could see the rust trying to start again so a quick coat of rust remover and then anti rust primer then black satin and it looks much better , I also sprayed the token sorter and token catcher and they have come up like new as the plastic was looking tired ,time will tell if it was the right decision 😁hopefully after I have sorted the base and made the plinth for the meters it will be time to start putting this baby back together again A1CE90C2-B6BC-49EB-9ABD-00BED0EEEFB8.thumb.jpeg.8bd3fae2f338ff07e672164e631dca20.jpeg4E18F7C4-7CE5-4CD3-9A4C-87AF0A83BA3B.thumb.jpeg.782e75a411c3c480932907ea9cd3cc0e.jpegimage.thumb.jpg.da42380aaee507b309f688043ba7f750.jpgimage.thumb.jpg.d988d7277a1c46da9b1914d660bbefc3.jpgimage.thumb.jpg.e4f2bc4698aa13254987a753a4a5f534.jpgcheers for reading 🍻

Meter plinth made out of the off cut from the top of the cab and the old door which was black ash effect but you won’t see the black ash as it’s going to be inside the cab under the mpu4 mounting plate 68F1058F-8026-4F72-9666-E587250DA207.thumb.jpeg.0b1b5ce46b7e135793c6ac0c217e1ec9.jpegED468D9C-64B7-4E95-8EE0-2E671D44CD83.thumb.jpeg.7e8275e0c18ca334b423fd07d593bd25.jpeg

Hi nick I do have another reel deck base In original condition I also have the vents in original condition the only thing I don’t have is the meter base so if it doesn’t look right when I’ve finished I can swop them bits over 😉

yep I still have the kick step I’m going to make a new base as the sides of the old one were a bit bashed up

Sounds  like a plan dave and carry on with the great restoration which I'm enjoying hugely .the black really is fine BTW .if im using a silver colour I use smooth hammerite which is really good
