That pleases me...




it continues...

Completed the right front fender. The trained eye immediately recognizes that there is one missing "Nothing", so a hole! :)
Heating wasn't really necessary for Dubai. Therefore there is no hole where you can suck in air.

Image


Cutting the hole isn't a big deal ... but, someone meant it well and reinforced the fender. With 6 mm allurized corrugation :?
... you could have thought a little.

Image


Well, then we go to the operation and put on the flex ...

Image


So that the paint didn't get too hot, I had to let it cool down every now and then.

Image

Image

Image

Image


...fits!

Image


...the same procedure on the other side

Image


Basic gynecological training is useful in order to tighten the top three screws on the sheet metal between the fender and foot box on the right. On the left, that doesn't help either. Then you have to come up with something ... :roll:

Image

Image


Sit!
... I think most series look worse on the top than the Sandy in the wheel arch! ;)

Image


... and around the top it also makes an impression!

Image

Image

Image

Image


... but the list of to-do's is still long :o

Image



What could be removed from the list?
The electrics in the engine compartment sorted. I converted the main headlights to relay control. I use the original line to control the relay. A new, thick line brings the electricity. This means that the power no longer runs through the switches or through the standard wiring harness.
Functionally it's wonderful, but I don't really like the solution (yet).

Image

Image


Then screwed on the front mask and grill. Unfortunately, the lower grill for the oil cooler opening is missing in the puzzle :?
You can't buy such a thing ... :o :? :D

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image



The Sandy is now absolutely modern! I also installed a KERS system :shock:

Image

Image

Image


Then the headlight inserts were installed.

Image


The grill from the oil cooler has also gotten some color ...

Image



... and then first ride !!

... I cannot yet say how it is to drive around bends. Item 35.> Mount the steering wheel <is still open :D

It is more likely that it is off a LHD vehicle? Ours do not have holes on that side. The air inlet is on the other wing.

I have relays on the headlights. Gives the indicator stalk a much longer life span. But then mine is also 24V so the contacts tended to burn out that much faster too. :roll:

I know that. But my car is is LHD. But that's probably how it is when you buy cars with first delivery Dubai (!).

no heating lever, no switch for the fan ... not even the print above the switch! They really tried hard :P

Image


... no heat exchangers, no Fan ...

Image


... no holes in the fenders :?

And a small safari roof. They are not common.

It was so optional. But it is very rare.
So far I've only seen one Landy with the truck cap tropical roof.








Final sprint

Tinkered struts for the fenders. To compensate for the heavy sliders, aluminum tubes were used here :D :roll:

Image

Image


Drawbar mounted.
I actually didn't want to assemble the Grab Handels in Limestone (!) At all. Unfortunately, I don't have the ones that belong to such a car and without them it looks very empty. So to everyone: >> it won't stay that way! <<

Image


Mounted lower and upper tailgate.

Image

Image


The missing brackets for the Dormobile roof are also in progress ...

Image


They are much better than the rubber bones

Image

Image



Oh yes, the assembly of a steering wheel extends the radius of action considerably

Image



... outside of the garage the device really comes into its own !!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


I hope you like the result...

Hello Mik,

I feel the same way...




Lookup

Sandy on the Road
(Pump Up the Volume :lol: )

As you can see in the video, the Sandy is not that unwieldy to drive .... o.k. I still have to practice at the entrance to the courtyard :D

Absolutely brilliant. I wish that I could see it in the flesh.

..thank you but don't overdo it.



The thick folder of documents that was always carried with me led to a relaxed acceptance.
The official sea blessing was thus, more or less, only a matter of form.

Image

Image




Today we still tinkered a heat protection for the clutch slave cylinder. I meant it a little too well when I put the exhaust system up high. The thing is getting really warm around the heart. With the fender everything seems to be fine ...

Image


..and the front has been beautified! Image

Image


... and even more for the eye :D

Image

Image



Evil tongues are now saying that I had cut up a US flag and asked where the stars went.Image
... no, you can buy something like that even without stars. That fits perfectly with the red candy on the dormobile roof. Image


Image

Image

Image



A few "dirty jobs" have to be done before the interior is finished.

In the fund there was still a roof rack. The noble Swiss product has to be adapted a little for the Sandy.
Cut through at a strategically favorable point ...

Image

Image


"Clamping sleeves" tinkered that are inserted into the pipes. So they center themselves as if by themselves. That makes dodging together a lot easier. Image

Image

Image

Image


Then the rust spots are blown with some paint.
There are still a few ideas that need to be implemented on this thing. Only when all of this has been done will I have the carrier re-galvanized ... or beautify it with stovepipe silver Image

Image

Image



... then I took care of the bracket for the Foxwing. Due to the Dormobile roof, all the usual fixings are ruled out.
Then the flex and the welding machine have to work ...Image

At the front there was a console on the roof rack. It has to protrude a little so that the Dormobile roof opens without collision.

Image

Image

Image

Image


The solution chosen at the back has the chance to defy longer hopping paths ...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


I'm afraid the thing will have to take on a few more useful functions. In order to be able to implement this with welding technology, the support is only galvanized when it has reached an advanced stage of maturity. Until then, a touch of black ensures that it doesn't look quite so raw.

Image



And the Foxwing can hang out ...

Image



The support profile of the Foxwing is quite stable, but on the Sandy the wing is now firmly fixed at the front and the back. You can bend them significantly with little force. If you do it rhythmically, it really swings up. It is quite conceivable that this could happen on the motorway due to the airstream ...
But the tooth was also pulled :D

Image

Image



With some regalia the Sandy doesn't look so "sterile" anymore ... it will!

Ahh but the burble of a V8 stirs the heart! :lol:

I have no idea what the folder is :?:

However, there are few builds that would come as close, and I am certain it is better now than it was new. So credit where it is due.

Sandy has never been registered in Germany. So a so-called full acceptance is necessary. I think you can imagine that the German authorities take it very carefully. This is not an issue with a standard car, but with such an exotic car there are many questions and not only answers but also documents are needed. In the folder are brochures from Sandringham, Dormobile. Technical documents for the trailer coupling and much more. The good man from the TÜV who does the acceptance is always happy when he has documents to file ...

Hi Mic,

I am pleased that you like the report and my work








There are things that cannot be done better Image

But copy! Image

Image

Image

Image


Image

Image

Image


I deliberately made the area between the canister and the lower tailgate a few deeper than on the original. Because I want to attach the bulwark to the roof rack. Another box should go into the free space. How exactly. ... but I can think of something else.

Image


Image

Image


The Dormobile sticker is of course as wrong as possible :oops:

Image

Image

Image

Image



Oh yes, here is the link to what needs to be copied :D

Looks fantastic Frank! Btw the bottom grille originally covered the full width of the "indentation" ;)

I believe I've got kind of GEN heating valve bracket for MOD type air filter. Found it while sorting parts for my Stage 1 . Frank, If you are interested I can post the pics .
