Ok update, most of the project has received two coats of undercoat so I'm inching along, I plan on using this loader 'in anger' in Sept/Oct so I've created a deadline for myself. 

Patience loading shovel fans!   :D

Not possible to rush a 'Work of Art' . Excellent project and Thread Rex. Lookin' the Dogz ***** (or is that CAT). You should be safe on here if it's not Green and Yeller :ph34r:

Did you ever finish painting this beast? We would like to see it in action at least.

Really sorry for not giving an update for so long but I have good news, l got everything under coated last summer but missed the weather for top coating. I have some time now and it’s nice and warm so I’m well on towards completion. I’m keen to share this project  with RS so as soon as I’m done I’ll be posting. :handgestures-thumbupright:

After my last update I set too and completed the wiring which was pretty straight forward, basically LED work lights and a LED tail light (don’t want to get rear ended) :)

Then the sound system  got tackled, this involved  removing the old exhaust nipple and fitting a new slightly longer one allowing a better fit for the silencer. 

A couple of days ago my decals arrived. Thank you very much Mark and Ewan (RESTORATION DECALS.CO.UK) you make excellent decals (trouble is they make my paint look like cr@p). :wacko:

So this evening after dinner I spent a very pleasant hour applying them and here’s a pic, more tomorrow. :rolleyes:

Curse you LED.  :ychain:

Yep it’s my lawn roller, 36”x18” :blink: it’s full of water, don’t know what it weighs, made no difference.

No counter weight

No wheel weight

No ballast

No driver !! 

I’ll get a video up soon. :greetings-clappingyellow:

If I'd know how you planned to do the rear stickers I would have come up with a custom design for them!

One of the best builds ever! 

Deserves its own webpage and you could sell "The Book" to build it. 

Seriously!  (add a forklift option too!)
