Hello and congratulations on your purchase.
When welding if coming into contact with the frame tubes (the body not the A frame) be aware they are quite thin.
Brake shoes. Have you stripped the drums and looked at the shoes? Definitely not just adjustment? How old is the 6? Quick answer what colour? We have covered this before and I'll dig out the threads if need be but the Dandy runs on Indespension suspension units with Knott brakes. You may see two patterns of Knott brakes quoted but they actually did three in short order with the last ones produced from 1990 ish onwards. The pre 1990 shoes are £££££s the practical solution is to send away for re lining.
I'm more than happy to help you find the links but hope you understand I'd like some confirmation you have looked at the brakes before I spend half an hour looking for details.
Congratulations on your purchase again we love photos here but you can't host them for 7 days. If you have some pictures of the 6 you could send them to us at dandycampers (at) live.com Please send as individual attachments, zipped files are a pain and put a note on here when posted so we check our email.
