I knew that the rear of Billy needed lifting to level it, and that I needed to close gaps where the caravan body joined the front cab.
I started by working on the suspension, and achieved some levelling by fabricating new, longer shackles for the leaf springs. And to further level the rear I was going to use angle irons and hardwood beams to strengthen and reinforce the uprights and caravan floor.
So for a while, it all seemed to be going to plan.
But the biggest obstacle was yet to come - the discovery that Billy's restoration was no longer a 'repair and re-fit at the back, and touch-up at the front', In reality, I was facing a complete re-build!
