In part 5 of our side project, we swap the rear axle for a much more modern unit from the DAF. But not before making even more mess of the poor old Cargo. The running gear exchange gets completed.

Thanks to Winntec for the terrific lifting gear and gloves, to Kielder for the awesome cordless tools and to Engery Solutions for some really exciting stuff coming soon.

It must have been said before, but I really can't help thinking that a Harrington Legionnaire, or any coach that had the chinese six Bedford VAL chassis would have been a better choice, because you can also drive them on a car license, they can take much more weight, have much more space, has lower floor height due to the small wheels (probably why it was chosen for the film) and you would not have had to modify the mechanicals. It would probably have cost less and been less work overall as a result. Plus if that is not enough you are allowed to take up to 8 passengers and tow a 750kg trailer too, so lots of options!

On my second watch of the Escargot and i'm probably saying this again, but damn they built this thing well back in the day. Had little rust issues, well thought out. The company that did this is probably defunct, but this is well made, i mean compared to the garbage you're liable to get today...

All bullspit aside, you guys are great. I love learning things I will never use or give a fat sh*t about. Noooooooo don't remove the floor, you won't be able to store things in it. Fawckn floor. Ok, I got a new idea for another 10 episodes. The guys rebuild a Radio Flyer wagon. Well now that the floor is out you might as well powder coat paint and plate the undercarriage. This whole project would have gone much faster if you had just set fire to it.🤤 Have you guys considered removing the rest of the truck, it looks pretty heavy? All trucks should come standard equipment with these two. I got a job drilling holes in sheet metal. Why didn't we we just put the box on the new truck. That would have made way too much sense. Besides, what use do we have for unbroken fingers anyways. FWD comming up.

I've got a vision in my head: Somewhere, in the depths of the DeathStar, are two English blokes hitting things with hammers, making brackets, fabricating bad puns and drinking tea. I just need to pitch it to Disney...

There's probably 200 dollars worth of copper in those cables and wires. I hope you didn't just bin them, and instead took them to a recycler or scrap yard, it may be worth your time if you still have them.

Why did I expect it to end up with Gas coil overs and new brackets everywhere. Gotta feed my bracket fetish.... back to the workshop to find something that needs a bracket, for no reason.

'Bad' Obsession Motorsport? Simple enough in English, but 'Bad' is German for a bathroom, pool or spa, so I wonder if you have any Belgian viewers who were hoping to see racing from Francorchamps. Or possibly some red-hot 'cars driven into swimming pools by rock stars' action. Or maybe soapy-boobed babes in bathrooms watching rally videos, or - Hey, that last one could happen. It may be niche viewing, but it could definitely be a thing. Indeed, once you've enjoyed this video, why not have a look at my new channel - 'Elli's a Bad, Bad Girl' - where you'll be able to watch me in the shower with - * * COMMENT CENSORED * *

Chris R
Chris R 3 kuukautta sitten
@Phil hanmer There is a little thing going on right now called a global pandemic, so it has kind of put a lot of things on hold, I don't know how it is in the UK, but I know earlier in the year here in the US, a lot of things were shut down making it difficult to get raw components to work with. Since these guys love to make brackets, I'm sure the raw materials for those were hard to come by. Just be patient.

Sorry for commenting so late but I thought it was worth saying. I'm sure you are aware but for anyone else, be careful welding to things like truck and trailer chassis because they are often quenched and tempered plate that doesn't take well to just welding on it without the correct procedures. Over here in Aus most truck trailer chassis are made of the stuff. At the age of this thing it is probably just fairly benign steel plate (especially how easily you drilled it) but it might be worth checking anyway.

The Truck of Theseus is legally defined by the Vehicle Identification Number on the frame. This is true in all fifty states in the United States, and clearly also true in the United Kingdom. It has to be this way because of repairs which replace a part, e.g. rear axle, drive shaft, transmission, engine, front suspension, front end. Just like Theseus' ship, some actual on the road vehicles have virtually nothing of the original structure, except for that all important Vehicle Identification Number.

Not Adjustable? are you lot going to put air suspension under it? remember you have removed a butt ton of weight from the truck. once you put the mini and all of the rest of the living mods inside the truck it will weigh a lot more. Also you will have the new engine so it will get a sh!t ton better milage, and and shed ton more torque, thanks to the diesel. I can not wait to see this thing painted white with the Bad Obsession logo and lettering on the side, instread of the yellow bannana paint job. Just wet sand it with 600 grit and buy a sprayer and a decent compressor. Just ad serious air dryers and water filters. buy straight white single stage paint and clear coat in 5 gallon sizes. start with the roof and work your way down. by the time you are finished making all of your mod's it will be next year anyway. Finish the Mini and concentrate on the Escargot. when that is done you can start attending rallying. WOOT! can't wait to see you lads actually driving the finished Mini! you have so much fun ahead of you.
