A bit of a different set up to yours Fred, but I ran a thread a while back on my wheel carrier fabrication which may be of interest to you if you haven't seen it.

Hi Fred, always read your posts with interest.

My wheel carrier is standard, on a late model body with the reinforcing in the back panel and it has still cracked, out at the edge where it meets the side pod.  So, any extra support you can give it. to take some load off that panel, the better.

Cheers, Nicko

Hi Fred if you are going to use the mokes aust rear bar buy it first and the alter the wheel carer as the wheel fits behind the bar, not on it.

Yes Moke2be I am happy with the finish But the seams where the spokes in the wheel are joned on there are some gapes
in one of Madogs Poasts he said use Silicon and seal it up first But My Powder coating Guye advised me aginst that  Because He said it will just Peal off
He told me that He use a Product called Peasole to treat the rust first
Right now I have to stick to a Budget and and I can only afford to get a couple of Items Powder Coated each week
after owning an other Moke Befor as a practice Project There are things I would do diferant on this one
as a Keeper

Hi Fred
One thing with powder coat is that it uses an electric charge which creates a fariday type field on some internal angles or corners  :( spokes are one such place.
See if your powder coater can give you some powder, mix a little bit with a good quality thinner and use a small artist brush to touch up where it was missed.
Leave it laying flat. It will take a few days to set hard, but should work better than an acid cure selastic ;)
