You really buy six thousand and ninety six mm instead of 6.1 meters? It would be 20 feet here. I though the metric system was supposed to be easier?

Most truck body parts are sized in feet, but as you see, the sizes are sold in Metric dimensions. Just the way it is, the factory is in France.....

At least you didn't have to order it in furlongs or chains.

All of the drawings we do are in Metric dimensions, but there are still some electronic parts that are in Imperial sizes or based on a 0.1" pitch for PCB work.

I have included a section of one of the drawings below to show some of the detail. When you open the image, click on it again to give the full-size view.

Drawbar being fabricated. This is normally made at the same time as the front axle carrier to ensure correct alignment.

Nearly there!

Drawbar and front axle support frame nearly completed.

Shotblasters arranged for Monday. The original company dropped out as they were too busy, so we found another company en route from the metalbashers that could do the shotblasting and hot Zinc spray.

Powder coaters ready to do it as soon as we haul it to them.
