Ah well. My workshop is warm, dry and has plenty of roomand I can sit on me chair and lower or raise whatever is on the lift so I can work on it. Bliss.........

If we are getting into garage/workshop/shed envy ;) this is Neil's sanctuary. Never had a car in it just a race bike. I have to knock before entering. :roll:

I do hope I haven't started a garage envy thing!!!

Its taken me a while, but this has been the long term goal of mine for the last 16 years or so.... the end use of the garage has changed but the workshop principle has remained constant. Its going to get better once I buy my bandsaw in the next few weeks Screwfix have a 10% discount on all items if ordered between the 4th and 18th of Jan!!!!

Cheers

Just a bit of fun. :) I read somewhere that all men should have somewhere to go that they can call their own, that's why potting sheds and garages are so important.

Cool,

I have a 10kw propane heater and a carbon monoxide alarm to keep the workshop warm when I'm in it at night. I normally switch it off after an hour as 30 def c is too hot!!!!!!!

Short answer:-

Yes,

Yes Please, I would like them very much.

I'll PM you my home addy.

I did get a CD of pictures from Bill which was Rob's and as good as they are, there is always some that are not at the right angle or are too far away or what ever. I'm sure you get the idea. It looks to be of teh same vehicle as the one that Rob took pictures of so that will help fill in any blanks that I have.

Brillint - cheers

PS just milled out my winky w*nky light, going to take a mold of it tomorrow and try casting some orange lens for it, then if succesful, I'll drill out teh ar*se with a 3mm drill bit and insert my LED and hey presto, a convincing fashing beacon. Will post pics and perhaps a short vid as I see photo bucket lets me do that now.......mmmmmmmm

Gents,

Hello again, I'm still living and working abroad, and the poor CrARRV is still in Aberdeenshire! but recently taken up the Inventor bug again and have been busy CADing some dwgs up for the front dozer blade......

Now this is where I need some help from fellow CR2 owners out there.....since I don't have the model at hand (it being 2000+ miles away) I need to get some chassis dimensions confirmed.

Please see the dwgs below showing the mock Glacis plate dimensions. I'm looking for confirmation or correction of the dimensions I have got stated on the dwgs below.

EDITED:- DIMENSIONS ARE A BIT SMALL - I HAVE 125MM TALL AND 295.5MM WIDE............PLEASE CONFIRM.

Image

EDITED:- DIMENSIONS ARE A BIT SMALL - I HAVE 125MM TALL AND 70DEG FROM HORIZONTAL OR 2O DEG FROM VERTICAL............PLEASE CONFIRM.

Image

The drawings below are the dozer assembly modeled to check clash angles etc, once I get the details done, i'll look at how to drive it via a motor or small electrical linear actuator..

Image

Image

Comments / criticism as always welcome.

Cheers
Andy

Photos of my modeled fire extingusher. Depending on the bowman aerial rapid prototype will determine if I get the fire extingusher done as well, all depends on the quality.

It costs a small fortune.......

If anybody has any pictures of the graphics that go on the military spec bottle i'd appreciate a photo of it, so i can draw something up?

Hi all, nothing much to say other than I have found the manufacturer of the CRARRV main winch:-

Rotzler, the winch is a Rotzler TR 2000, which has a wire diameter of 35mm, which incidentally Accurate Armour correctly scale the wire............very accurate......

Rapid Prototype on it's way, will post some pics when it arrives.

Cheers
Andy
