Phil Stanbridge has provided us with the following image that shows the arrival of the sheet metal that will become the roof of the brake tender. These have been delivered to our friendly workshop in Burton on Trent (TAS Engineering) and will over the next couple of weeks be cut and rolled to shape for fitting to the vehicle in a few weeks time. Work will then proceed to fully weld the bodywork up before it is prepared for painting and lettering, plus weighing and setting the correct ride height.
