Well, the last blog post was pretty much completed. The airbag stuff is in, the lid is secured, and everything is tested! It all works very well, and we just have a few little things to look at and the airbag stuff will work 100%.
It is much better than before, better than when DS Engineering robbed me of £2000 to initially set it up. In fact i would even say they made a complete abortion of it. It had to be sent back once to have some welding finished that they had left in a dangerous state, and they just bolted all the stuff in the back on a bit of wood – completely exposed to the elements!
Now we have it in a fabricated box, all bolted down to the bottom of the caddy, and i have used much bigger solenoids, much bigger (like, LOADS bigger) pipework and a pressure switch that actually works!
When i first had the airbags, i was totally dissapointed with it. It was slow, didnt seem to move much.. Now i am extatic, as it moves RATE fast, and go’s PROPER high and really quite low as well!
We have lots of wiring to do, but after that i will put some vids up of it moving up and down etc 🙂
In other news, im feeling much better now i am sorting things out money wise. I may be burning the candle at both ends by staying up late and only getting 5 hours sleep max a night, but its nesscery as at the moment im trying to do a lot in order to both secure my future, and my present.
As soon as i am up to date with bills, and the caddy is on the road and working – i am gonna start putting some cash away to help start a little sidelline venture me and dave have been speaking about for ages. It involves something we both love, and is probably something we can make a fair bit of cash at if we stay on our toes and bring in a few people to help us along the way 🙂
Im off to sleep now, more work to be done tomorrow, then monday i am set for a VERY long day!
10am till 5pm at a clients, then 10pm till 6am at the box.. Wont be getting much sleep that day(s)!
