Ok folks, the photos are on for everyone to see.
Now it has changed a fair bit since the photos wre takin,the back storege box is gone,i have takin all the old paint off,2 coats of etch primer,then 2 coats of kill rust paint in a cream colour.
Now as you will see inthe pics there is alittle photo thats how the lifting arms are supposed to be.
My problem is that all the top locating pins are rusting or gone,now as i can't get the roof up to have a look , by feel with the under the edge of the roof,the head of the bolt(locating pin) is housed in sortof semi circle fibeglass section.
How high i hear you asking I DON'T KNOW when i can get a few jobs done out the way & some time & a few mates over to lift the roof we wiil know then how high, what am i going to do to hold the roof up while we are working out height,etc. get 2 step ladders the same height& a plank to go across the top of the of the stepladders.
has anybody seen the balckwolf turbo tent? They have a 188 degree lockable knuckle joint.
My idea was to use 4 of these knuckle joints(1 on each corner) aluminium tube over the outside& bar on the inside for strength.
As i don't have a digtal camera (can get access to one), i will endeaour to get some pics of these knuckle joints.
All this is done on a small budget.
As the gas struts are more expensive then the SPAMER arms.
Sorry for rambling on ,but once i get started i go on &on.
yes i have looked at the web site , registered but have not had the time to do a serious look..
