Great photos
I'm sure I've seen a floor like that before.



Most of us go for drums or discs but that will work too.

Good luck with the restoration,

Stephen

It's not whether you win or loose but how you play the game.

Considering from what I have read in the various estimates, only about 50k of these wonderful machines were made officially. Even less then the number of pickups made. Even the Elfs and Hornets collectively are more numerous then the whole of the Moke production run. I would have to imagine many thousands of them have already met their end, and they only get scarcer for every one scrapped :)

Every moke deserves to be loved ;)

Finally found some more time in the last couple of weeks to get back to the old girl.
After I got her back from the sand blaster. wasn't pretty at all.
1-Removed the worst side cover. passenger side.
2-Cut the floor and tunnel out.
3-Cut 100mm off the bottom of the inside panels.
4-Cut out the lower fire wall complete.


All in the bin :'(

Widening the Guards
Going to put disc brakes on the old girl and a set of 6" Superlites.
As the the track is going to widen and I want the tyre's to be inside the guards, they have to be widened.
I have cut the old Aussie Moke add on guards off and bought a 8,0 mtr  length of 65 x 35 Dura Gal RHS.
To give a lower look I am going to run the RHS all the way along the side and set it down 25mm.


The piece on the end at right angles is to fill in some bad holes from rust.

Looks good and gives the side a bit more strength to the gaurds.

Got a rear seat today for the Moke out of a coaster bus hi back type but it cost big $  ------:) $5.00
And it in great condition, Iam going to recover it anyway.
It's 900mm wide and fits perfect.
Has any one got any suggestions for the front seats I thought Hyundai Excel with the seat beats attached to the frame.

Hi andrew,

Your build is coming along nicely, I am attempting the seats with built in seat belts I am probably going to consult an engineer and worse case scenario I will rip the belts out and fit standard lap belts. Happy to pass on the contact details to you from the place I got them from. They are ex ambulance comfortable and were very cheap.

Cheers,
            Paul
