The body in place

We have taken a big step forward, because now the body is in place on the underbody. Getting the body in place was quite simple,but it was a big job to mount all the bolts that holds the body and the underbody together. If I’ve calculated correctly, it’s 109 pcs.
 A good crane was an invaluable aid when the body was lifted in place.

Ready to attach the body and the underbody.

The engine is mounted in the body and the steering gear is put on the underbody. The construction is a bit odd because the engine and the gearbox are attached into the body while the steering gear is attached both in the body and the underbody.

The next step is to mount the body on the underbody, lift up the steering gear and mount the brackets. I’m getting a little worried about thinking of the job that’s left; crowded, hard-to-reach and bad workplaces.
