 Smiley I made the mistake of saying there was no rush for them & he said he'd fit them in between other jobs. Not holding me up at the moment, but I'll have to chase him up at some point.

can remember customers at boatyard saying no rush, biggest mistake they could make.
2yrs later boats were still unfinished due to other so called rush jobs coming in.
imo you need to get onto him now Andy.

not much progress yesterday,
cut floor pan out on other side,



welded where needed.



need to trim front of floor and finish welding.



once painted i will sit it back onto chassis and start making mountings to fix to original frontera body chassis mounts.
don't know whether to use original rubber mounts or metal to metal.

Body back down on chassis, needs to go lower at back by about 3inches.

a few alterations to do but to be expected as no way to know how it will sit until its all in.
doors not here until 10th, plenty to do though. body needs to be lower, body mounts once its in correct position, got frontera steering and pedals to fit.
brake lines to replace and some fuel lines. its nice not having to deal with suspension and chassis work, but i have got electrics to do as engine is fuel injection. going to see if i can delete transfer box and propshaft. really want to take out front axle(seperate hubs like a fwd) but that can wait. got an idea for exhaust, most will hate it(which i like)  most are going to hate the whole thing anyway Cheesy Grin
