I hope so.

Hopefully you will keep us updated with things once you take over with the rebuild?

 

Cheers

of course.  not sure how frequent they'll be or whether they'll be of much interest, but you'll be able to follow my attempts to put it back together again on here..

Just waiting on the new corner posts to arrive now.

Once they are fitted, there is a repair to do on the tailboard and the gaps to finalise on the passenger door and then the panel work is complete.

Then it will be time for prep!

 

Cheers

That's looking pretty damn good from where I'm sat !!

Still some ways to go I know, but I'm starting to get just a little bit excited about getting it back

Hadn't noticed before, but the side panel top rails don't appear to have the cut-outs for the tilt frame posts ?

It's getting there now.

There are a few other bots to do like the fuel/brake line retainers underneath and the toe board stiffeners etc but i shall do that during the prep stage as i don't really want to be loading/unloading the shell off of the spit unnecessarily.

 

You are right about the cut outs for the tilt frame posts, I still need to do that but was keen to get the side panels lined up and welded on first.

I have saved the old side panels so that I have what I need when i get to that.

 

Cheers
