 Mock up of the splitter assembly (ignore the large square spacing tubes) to calculate what extra steel we'd need. This is now using the heavy (9.6mm thick) salvaged steel beam

 Trial fitting of load bed beam with new hinge, and testing different ram positions

 tipping angle should be ok, but that may not be best place for ram. Will also probably mount the ram on the inner side of the chassis rail and beam

 testing whether the ram would be better inboard of the chassis rail. Can also see notches in beam to clear chassis projections
