The unit is covered with shop grime and lot dust at this juncture but we’ll post shined up photos later. This is just an update.
Ramps are stowed beneath the Mini in aluminum/nylon slides.
Winch and Onan Cummins 4300 series generator behind the cab, at the “headache bar”
Tool chests or “possum bellys” along both sides for stowage.
The generator rides right behind the cab but slides forward when access for servicing is needed.
This is portable inverter model entirely made in Japan by Sabaru. They have a marketing alliance with Onan for North America.
I have had the wheels removed and the plant permanently monted to the truck bed. It wil also be painted black. Both measures are to discourage “unwanted portability”.
Note the T leg which Bill built into each ramp. It drops down automatically as you pull the ramp out. This strengthens the ramp when it is tested by weight.
Bill reminds me of a young Norman Mailer. Being a farm boy, he may not know Norman Mailer. I will ask him sometime.
Next week we will get the car up on the deck, complete the exhaust stack and install tie-downs for the auto.
Then it’ll be done. When everything is shined up nicely I’ll submit a better picture.
