    Sheet welding... I'm always banging on to stitch weld sheet otherwise everything will bend and buckle...righto teach, just stitch it. So I look at my guards which are welded to the chassis and through the sheet walls to the carcass so that they are rigid. Then I stitch the sheet walls to the guards and think to myself that the welding looks pretty cool and the sheet hasn't moved too much. So in the spirit of looking cool I MIG seamweld the entire guard to the sheet and buckle it like a champion. Oh well, done now and at least water shoudn't get through it.

    Can't see anything in the regs that says which way up they have to go or you having a laugh and I've missed it completely?

    Technical Requirements - Section 13
    Vehicle Standard (Australian Design Rule 13/00 - Installation of Lighting and Light Signalling Devices on other than L-Group Vehicles) 2005 - 10.1
    Vehicle Standard (Australian Design Rule 6/00 - Direction Indicators) 2005

    Couldn't find anything in this lot to say which way up they should be - is there a local document that adds to these that you know of? I'm genuinely interested here, not having a go as that the way I have my caravan lights.

    I've always had the indicator lights at the top where I consider them to be most visible. When the light clusters are horizontal the indicators must be outermost.

    Ah well, I was just stirring. I just walked outside & checked - they're the same as the Madigan's trailer, not the Hay R one. But I have them mounted as your students suggested!!
    Sorry you're enduring lockdown now, but glad no more cases there so far..

    I was really just stirring. Although it does make my CDO (OCD, but alphabetical) itch to see the indicators on top, thereís nothing wrong with it and itís your trailer.

    John I'll have to see the Madigans trailer, I'm not sure if I've seen it. Was it an evolution of the Hay River trailer?

    I thought you were stirring!!

    I should rotate them, and have the blinkers on the inside! That'll even set off people that don't have CDO!
