|Return springs were a problem well solved|
Another pleasant little task was the fitting of the number plate. I had picked up a swish stainless steel back-plate and some rather tidy LED lights from Ebay (£20 the lot, bargain). popping them on took no time at all and made the trailer look way more finished.
Next up was the rear light clusters, As I have mention before we needed to modify them slightly to make them detachable, and compatible with the loom I had purchased. The first job was to fix in the bolt that would pass through the ally bar that the ramps will hook over, a simple matter of drilling a hole in the bottom of them and pushing a bolt through the hole with a lock-nut on the opposite side, said bolt then passes through the bar and wing nut hold the light cluster in place.
And there you go, all that remains now is make some provision the attach the spare wheel and get the welder converted to ally so I can attack the ramps. I'm more than a little nervous about this as not only did all that aluminium for the ramps cost me about £200 but I've never welded ally before and if they fail its going to total whatever is driving up them at the time. No guts, no glory.
