when will the fun ever end?

Think I've outlined it somewhere above, this sort of kit is pretty common around here to be placed in an on-premise account by either coffee, soft drinks or beer supplier. I've been approached both as the supplier and designer that I am to think up a subtle and multi-purpose table-side POS tool fitting in the restaurant. Owner wanted to split manufacturing costs, offering one side to be used for our communication/promotion/... well, on to the story telling then:

It's all about the little things

 

On-site beauty shots will follow...

Can you not put in a redirect on one of them so they both work?

UPDATE TIME!

 

We're doing not too bad so far, soon to sell our 500th batch. A big thank you to all who've shown interest, supoorted us, provided feedback and spread the word so far!

 

In the meantime, in a few lucky twists of fate we're facing three bigger business opportunities I'm going to report once the time is ripe to talk about 'em. Excitement ahead!!

Currently, the major show stopper is plant size (that goes hand in hand with batch size) and all manual packaging. We're waiting for a nearby company to move out so we can rent and adapt the premises. More on that as soon as it's official

 

For the time being, I'm focusing on getting our name out to the people. What strategy would fit me, automotive maniac in 1st degree, better than...

 

Serious business means serious wheels.

 

After a bit of research and look-out I met a very intriguing chap who specialises in importing and restoring US classic cars. I've totally fallen for Series II Chevrolet trucks by now.

Talking to this guy revealed they're just about to finish work on their own showcase shop truck. Wasn't meant to be sold, but a 100% match to what I've envisioned! So we came to an agreement quickly

 

So, here's what started as means for presentation of their skill set, a complete strip down (à la[mention=12284]jimbojohn55[/mention]), and high quality rebuild, using factory-new engine, carb, ignition, radiators, electrics, gearbox, drive train, exhaust, suspension, brakes, interior, other bits and bobs, you name it.

It'll be fully reassambled within the next couple weeks. Then it shall get some genuine Hasi graphic treatment (currently doing layouts for some subtle branding)...

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, here goes our shop truck project!

btw, we may need to stay incognito on different occasions (like a classic car event prohibiting advertising or me driving it to my 9-5 ). For this case, we'll have some magnetic foil full of puns to go over the logo. I've done the artwork just yesterday... here's a teaser:

 

IMG_20190622_225150.thumb.jpg.0479d12deec7904c5f32cc64565037ff.jpg

 

You see what I did there?

 

 

PS: it's not like I didn't name this thread randomly...

She is a beast!
Rated 285HP on the dyno, where she had the carburetter optimised.
But a friendly one, I'm not likely too floor it...

comes with easily removable wooden sides - post and beam style. Looking into the options once in my hands. What I do know now, though, is the bed will feature fantastic wood/chrome linings (stay tuned for details!!) so kinda torn about whether or what to put over it
She'll surely have a great and easy second life with us, but every now and then she'll receive a bedful of coffee bags these need securing and weather protection for sure!

@Hasi congratulations , is that 500 kg or 500 roasting sessions ?  Impressive either way in a short time .. New premises wow .. I hope it does well .. They need to sort the suspension out it is a bit low for you and obstacles 🥴

Ha!
500 both, as it's our 1kg roaster still

Premises will likely take until 2020

Suspension is not in there yet, resting on its rubber end bushings going that low would require massive body work mate (relocating inner wheel arches, raising bed etc.) not gonna happen! She will stay true to her origins, even the green colour is 99% what she looked like before restoration.

unfortunately pump and compressor would need to go somewhere more or less visible (most likely on the bed), also in Austria you can't really get such a retrofit through MOT... so no inflation there

I think you should get something else and stay true to your Rover motor heritage, at the same time Chevrolet were making your pick up a much more refined project was hatched at Morris by the black ops performance and stealth wing of the wider BMC corporation, building on the strengths of the US pick up and teaming it with the latest design and wind tunnel testing in a narrow alley  between the Longbridge canteen and the toilet block.

Capable of hauling a massive 250kg, with ultra skinny tires for less drag it could red line at 5000 rpm taking you to blistering 77mph with a 0-60 mph of 38 seconds 🤘,  even faster when travelling downhill on wet cobbles with a full load.

If you start looking for one, my tip is go for the Mk 3 it had a heater as standard
