Hello,

More work done today,

Work on the hatches on the top of the engine bay.

Image

Working on the winch, i change the grub screw M3 to M4 and put a flat surface on the axle ( for the worm wheel )

Image
Image

There are 3 washers that you have to put on the axle just ath the end of the worm wheel so the worm wheel is in the center.

Image
Image

Also did some work on a second speaker that i put in the spare wheel on the back of the famo.

Image
Image

I did glue the steel cable into the winch wheel and close the hole with metal paste ( to secure the cable )

Image

Best regards Yves
