    Darren has been sending my updates as i've unfortunately had to work (boooo!)

    Mission weld up unnecessary holes has been done....







    This included cutting out some rot and fixing the snapped/rusted door brace





    and incase you cant see also the hole in the roof from the roof beacon it had during its original life



    next up was a chassis notch, not planning on going dick head low but cant hurt to do it now if i change my mind





    Umfortunately whilst doing the notch Darren made a discovery....







    but Darren being Darren this was soon put right...










    got tomorrow off for my birthday so i'll pop up and see it in the flesh

    Updates!!!

    Not the most exciting but updates none the less...

    First, got round to sandblasting a load of bits ready to powdercoat, before and afters....

















    Dont know if you can tell from the above pictures but ive modified the 2.0 8v Alternator bracket as only 3 holes line up anyway so made it look a bit more like its meant to be like that.



    Found some sturdy workbenches at work that were about to be thrown out so i loaded them into the van and got them home sharpish before anyone else claimed them. then proceeded to rearrange my garage...

    my original wobbly self made bench...



    new set up....



    before the benches made it into the garage i went and collected everything that wasnt bolted to the shell and brought home...





    New alternator set up



    "built" engine up to make sure everything fits..





    then took it all apart again



    Painted some bits high temp black



    wasnt a fan of the matte so redone in gloss



    and a few bits fresh silver





    that was tonight so were up to date..... except one final picture i recieved just now.....



    first lot of bits powdercoated
