A video of the last trial I attended before lockdown. It was at catlow, was nice to go there as I've been attending that trial site since I was a baby and this was the last time it was going to be open because the quarry is re-opening. It was unusually slippy this year, and I now have some Fedima Sirocco 225/75R15 100Q's being delivered, they're 10mm skinnier  and a softer load rating than what I have atm, so should be a lot better even though they do have a theoretical 12mm smaller diameter.

The welding a nut to a bolt is a personal favourite of mine, it proovides a heating and "quenching" element at the same time. Another method to stop the bolt snapping is to work it back and forth a bit, for example 1 turn out, half turn in, 1 turn out, can be time consuming but it's saved a lot of bolts in my time.

Welcome to the forum, any chance you could start a build thread or show us some pictures of the cab you are building.

Hi everyone. Nice to join this forum.

I've a 1958 404 which has a fibreglass cab top. I know these are a bit of a rarity. As I'm rebuilding the cab in steel, it's surplus to requirements. Any interest here? Cheers.

Another one is removing bearings from a tight housing using a weld bead to shrink it.

One of my favourites is removing broken studs by either welding a nut or washer on & then just unscrew them.
