Progress report:

since the last picture i have
Cut the roof inline with front doors

Cut boot door to make tailgate

Added structural beams to put strength back into body

Replaced my fuel tank as the old one had a hole in side of tank from when the previous owner had it

And ive also wired up a second battery to the rear of the truck as a slave battery to run the spot ligts off of Smile

I thought about welding the back to the front got it all in placethen changed my mind and here are a few more pics to show you  Laughing


This is originaly what i wanted to do but just before i started welding i thought of something else . . .

I wanted Something a lil different as ive already seen this done i wanted to do my own thing Cool  Laughing And i thought of this . . . so i put it together roughly . . .  

Then i started welding (which is not too easy with one hand! Especialy when that hand aint your dominent hand!)


But like left footed breaking, its hard aty first then after a while u get used to it!  Cool

Looks a bit mad at the mo but will take shape 2morow When i put slanted struts in!! Hope you like It!

More pics 2morow!

Okay got a lil bit more done today, got another beam welded on and sealed some lil holes in roof! But the little bro revealed that he cut a wire for something and didnt know what it was. . . . turns out to be the wires for the fuel tank!!  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad  Evil or Very Mad so spent ages chasing wires back upto the main loom!! also while i had wires and everything out i removed everything i dont need from behind the dash I.e heating matrix and other switches and dials that i didnt need! just kept the speedo and rev counter and front light switches! Smile dash is now back on and all the holes where its missing bits are going to be covered with bits alumilium for blankers! Should look good Very Happy  

Heres some pics!

Then it raind for a bit Sad

Then it stopped Very Happy

Put some littel trims on the sharp bits Smile

Wireing loom Sad

Empty dash  Cool


Im now in 2 minds weather toput the back door back on and have the sand boards across the top of the back or just use sand boards as the back door  Question  Question  Question  Question  Question  Question  Question  Question

What do you all think people??
