Hi  FFRMAN,

Been working on her slowly as time permits, she is now rust free, Has a new canopy frame and i have started on the body work ready for paint

I had to make up new radiator supports as the old ones were badly rusted.


lots of rust removal, I welded all new sheet steel back in its place


Ive repaired the floor pans and resealed with a bitumen sound deadner that also has an anti corrosion barrier


slowly stripping the paint from the bull bar in my make shift workshop


I have also completed welding up the new canopy support frame


I sprayed the load area with spray on tub liner
