Happy with the rear arches, much better protection with plastic miners on the rear (unlike 2wd)

Re: 3 Sisleys and a 'HOLE' lot of TLC

Straight to work eh, with lots of work to do by the looks of it, and all of it to do again when you get to the red one...

Do look like you get some good parts off the rolled one to transfer though. That one pictured will fix up with the TLC that you're giving. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

3 Sisleys and a 'HOLE' lot of TLC

One panda spit, assembled just in time for lunch

3 x Acrow Props and some scrap angle came in pretty useful!

Wow that's a serious bit of kit! Don't jack the roof up too much and let the rain in

Keep the updates coming!

Re: 3 Sisleys and a 'HOLE' lot of TLC

Btw, does anybody have any recommendations on cavity protection? I will fill it with cavity wax when everything is welded back together but I want to make sure I get everything covered whilst I have them cut open.

I'm thinking a good covering of Red oxide/ zinc based primer. Any other suggestions?

Re: 3 Sisleys and a 'HOLE' lot of TLC

Excellent work Adam, no messing! Some work to be done, but it could certainly be a lot worse!

I use weld through primer to paint internal sections before welding, then a good coating of Dinitrol cavity wax afterwards.

Re: 3 Sisleys and a 'HOLE' lot of TLC

Great progress so far! At this rate them three Sisleys will be back on road by end of 2017. I presume that last meet at Freddy's was the final straw for you to get in to 4x4's.
Looking forward to see some sparks...
