lorry convo so far


Recommended Posts

well following goodheads lorry convo,heres mine i started at the weekend,got a bit of the way in,but am having huge problems getting the chassi to bond/glue,so far i have used superglue,superglue and bracing,and 2 part exopy super super glue,and it still won't bond properly,so am going to use small self tappers to join with bracing unless someone out there has any other ideas, as i am stuck on it now,can't move any further until i know the chassis is stable,plus all the screws will be covered by the sheilding pannels,the body is going to be a bulk blower for feeds

I'm at our swage works behind CWF this week on nights Sean. They may be a bit distant but I'll see if I can get a few pics of their 8wheelers. If the security guard is there he may let me have a wander around. Will be dark too so all in all not the best set up for taking photo's but it maybe worth a try.

Looking smart Sean, is it going to be labeled BOCM Pauls?

'BOCM' don't have trucks that smart mate , just standard chassis & cab for them , but 'Countrywide' do get their drivers some good kit  :)

this truck doesn't belong to an owner driver , the countrywide transport manager recognises the impact of the trucks image that represents the company & buys the best for his drivers , this goes for farm delivery wagons as well, often seeing a VOLVO FM with a globetrotter cab & all the whistles & bells that drivers want with a smart truck :)

it's something you won't find in  BOCM fleet colours

She is pearlrscent aswell lads, it is the dangleys. Two Globetrotter XL's and two Toplines make the fancey fleet up among a host of other artics with bulkers, tautliners and rigids and wagon and drag outfits. Shame most of them are on their way out soon  :( :'(
