Looking good buddy.  How's the access to the other side of your shed?  ;)

First half of next year for that other job to be finished, I reckon.

 

When are you moving back to the Farm...? ;D

Thanks all :)

 

Pete, I'm still a Mod in (this) my own section - just not over the whole forum.

 

Alex, those front panels are not on yet!

It'll be a challenging job...

A fair bit has been happening to this recently, as I've... ahem... had some time free'd up...

Anyway, photo's say a thousand words!

 

The pedalbox arrived a while ago & has been dummied fitted:

The GAZ suspension arrived recently & was trial fitted:

Front end panels are now attached. The guards did no line up at all & had to be heavily modified to make them fit where that attach to the A-pillar/door jam:

...and with the grill & chin spoiler in place:

I then spent some time making a pair of seat mounts - these move the occupants lower & further back:

Let me Bonehead that for you...

I'm currently working on the rear Panhard Bar mounting & the trailing arm mounts. More photo's soon...
