right as the slave driver was back in derby i did a slower pace today.

made the second engine mount so now the engine is fully fitted.



then i tackled the top bar that we had to cut out in order to get the engine in.

i have made it removable for future engine removal.


then i dropped the bonnet back on, fitted the alternator and winch.


and finally started on the tcase cross member, this will be fully bolt on just in case we need to remove the t case at some point.
