So that explains how you've managed to crack on a bit this week. Surprising the amount you can get done when you're left in peace and quiet Smiley

right, no one laugh. this is how far i've got with the body. first time at doing this.
got one door outer frame in hole, need to get more steel for other side.
got the cowl and front bulk head to start yet, which i think will change the looks making it not seem so wide.
