Getting all the pieces of the puzzle ready.
Den 25/2 2017 oprandt endelig dagen hvor GMC 352’eren kunne få et lag grøn maling.
On the 25th of February 2017 we finally reached the day when the GMC 352 could get a coat of green paint.
We pulled the original M24 power plant, the twin Cadillac Series 44T24, out of the engine bay before we moved the hull into the workshop, and as the pictures show, those engines are probably not going to drive anything anytime soon. So, we are installing a new (used) engine, a Perkins V8.640 with an Allinson automatic gearbox. Thus, the M24 is going from a twin engine to a single engine setup, and from gasoline to diesel. We think we might be lucky enough to be able to fit the engine to the controlled differential with a very simple modification of the differential itself.
Efteråret 2016 gik med at ‘preppe’ GMC 352’eren til at få et ordentlig lag grøn maling.
The Autumn of 2016 saw the GMC 352 being prepared for a healthy coat of green paint.
I løbet af foråret og sommeren 2016 blev 352’eren så småt klar til maling. Vi startede i lastbilens hjerte, med motoren, som fik et godt lag “battleship grey” d. 3/8.
During the spring and summer of 2016 the 352 was slowly prepared for painting. We started with the heart of the truck, the engine, which received a solid coat of battleship grey on the 3rd of August. Læs mere GMC 352 year one – continued.
