    Demolitions on my pergola over the Viper are complete. I have to clean up the rubble now and have it taken away, then I can roll the central fuselage away to the other driveway, so it's out of the way for the two new rooms. As soon as that's done, i can build my bigger, better shed/workshop/hangar.

    Moving the Viper to the other driveway is the challenge.

    Bunnings sells really flimsy dolly trolleys, so I made my own the same dimensions of the feet. I'm in the middle of replacing all the plywood cladding around the feet with steel, including 8mm thick steel baseplate under each foot. I will drill holes in the edge of the baseplate, so I can bolt the dolly trolleys under them for ease of moving around. I'd hate to be pushing the Viper along and have it come off a trolley.

    If all the dollies are like that they will fight each other when you try to turn, you either need all swivel wheels of swivels on the front leg/s and fixed on the back.

    I am putting fixed wheels on the back dollys. Yes, I see what you mean. I'll put all swivels on the front dolly. I'll swap them over in the morning. Thanks mate.
