When I did a City and Guilds in welding, we were taught its not earth, it's the welding return cable. Used to drive the teacher up the wall (that and gas comes in cylinders, milk comes in bottles) if we called it earth.

And they were electrodes not sticks.they grew on trees.and it wasn't stick or arc welding it was MMA(manual metal arc)
We could wind the instructor up quite easily,
Having said that he was a bloody good welder and instructor.
He managed to get me to a good standard,I ended up an ASME 9 coded welder,

Couple of daylight shots:





Got the tapered front end to sort out now, plus the roof.

It looks fairly tall for the width - I hope it will tow ok in cross winds.

I don't think he will be going out in it during the winter, but he will probably insulate the roof.

All the weight is low down and it does have an anti-roll bar under there. Basic chassis as modified is 380kg.

Philip wanted stand-up height so that's where it comes to do that.

He is fitting different wheels with a bigger offset that will widen the track as well.

Anti Roll bars just "iron out" biased suspension activity, they won't stop it going over in a strong side wind. Artics have "state of the art" anti roll technology and they still get skittled.
