    Baie netjies Johann!!!
    Hoveel dink jy sal hy weeg wanneer hy klaar is? Watter grootte tyres gaan jy gebruik?

    As a matter of interest, what material and how have you coated it, have you used for the sides?

    I'm considering mild steel frame, that is galvanized.
    Mild steel frame box that is galvanized.
    Then was thinking 1mm Alu checker plate for the box, but this is going to cost me, and I'm concerned about sealing the Alu, as I won't be in a position to alu weld.

    Maybe mild steel sheeting would be better, but I think it would warp if galvanized. What are my other options?

    Otherwize, looking good, and coming along quickly.

    Good job!

    Barto - salseker so tussen 450-550 kg wees as hy klaar is - sal hom so Woensdag gaan weeg - ek gaan 31 10.5 15 op sit - moet nog die brieke doen ( kabel in sit- en voor op sit) Ek wil h hy moet brieke h - hy staan tans by Haniball vir die kant tente wat ek aan die IMPI tent gaan vas sit, wat dan die regter kant en die agter kant sal toe maak.Dit gaan nogal 'n groot tent wees.

    Hi

    Have you worked out your cost yet would be interesting to see what figure you come to compare with one of the floor with more or less the same size with extras.

    You take orders

    I have been doing the cost myself:

    Makro Wilderness - 1.6 ton axle - R 22 080 (excludes registration &plates)
    Venter Bush Baby - 1.4 ton axle - R 23 000 (ex reg & Plate, includes fridge slider)
    Local builder - 2.5 ton axle - R 15 000 (ex spare but includes reg & plates)

    The tent will be the same for all 3 and the Maxi from My Way will be about R15 000.

    I see in the one pic, your internal frame on the door is also painted (also 2K I pressume). Is this also galvanized?

    Do you buy the sheets already galvanized, or is this done afterwards, and how does electro galvanizing differ from hotdip? As good, better? Costs?

    Thanks for sharing Johann

    eletro galvanized sheets is beter to weld on and no rust wil be there. I dont like hot dip and very difficult to weld on and not nice to paint. the electro sheets is a bit more expensive.

    So you buy the sheets already galvanized. And it does'nt rust where you weld? What about the weld itself? Surely you are using mildsteel rods, and that can rust? How do you treat your welds?

    As for the square tubeing frame, how do you treat this to prevent rust?

    What about you base frame? Any rust preventative measure here?

    Thanks a mil for the feedback....... I've learned something new already, and see my initial ideas changing shape already.

    yes i did buy the electro gal. sheets - it will rust on the welds but all the welds was painted with EDGE primer and then MS primer on all the non galvanized bits and then the 2K paint with hardner - the same what the pannelbeaters use. It works well for me - I dont like HOT dip galvanizing , everything pulls and wabbels and you must dril a lot of holes GA - not for me.

    Hi Johan, where did you buy the gas stove and what make is it? I am not having any luck in finding one with a lid that can clamp shut like that one.
