Thanks for the comments Guys. The pics don't show the true story. Cage is so tight had to use porta power and ratchet straps to get it in. Unfortunately this has damaged some of the paint and scratched the rollcage. Needs some touching-up and a couple of carefully placed stickers to hide the damage.

The dash is bonded in place but can gain plenty of access from underneath to wire it and fit the gauges. Wouldn't come out around the cage so thought I might as well bond it in.

The pickup bed has totally gone and yes I have extended the rear bulkhead to meet the floor. Used the rear bulkhead from my spare pickup to keep the shape but decided I don't like it and will be covering it with checkerplate or something similar.
Will post some more pics end of the week when it should be rolling.

Started to fit the engine and then found out i've got the wrong mounts. Still got it into position but only got 1 mounting holding it up. Also found out today that i've got the wrong exhaust so got to take that off as well. Not a very productive day.Wheel arches didn't turn up so couldn't start fitting them. Spent all day today fitting the n/s a-panel.

Starting to look more like a mini now. Flip front off e-bay for £25.Best bargain so far.
